The Present Simple

The present simple is usually the first tense you learn when you study English. It is a very easy tense to form, just remember to add an ‘s’ to the third person singular.

I walk to work every morning.

BUT:

He walks to work every morning.

This little ‘s’ makes a big difference and can easily be forgotten when you speak – or when you write!

You can use the present simple for a variety of different purposes. For example when you talk about facts, timetables, things you do regularly and many more. This video will give you a lot of examples when to use the tense and will also show you some typical mistakes students often make.
