Ben’s Grammar Tip of the Week

Present Simple

We use the Present Simple tense a lot in English and it is very important that we get it right!

Many students have problems with this tense but after this explanation you should be a pro!


Who do we use the Present Simple?

  1. Always true – 1+2=3
  2. Permanent situations – I live in Brisbane.
  3. Habits – I play soccer every Monday.
  4. Timetables

How do we make present simple? Easy!

I play soccer

I do not play soccer

Do you play soccer?


Remember, in English we are very cheap. We have to bring our own Auxiliary when we make a negative or question


Do and Does


So what are you waiting for? Get out there and practice!
