O Simple Present Tense é usado para descrever ações habituais ou uma verdade em geral. Você não encontrará dificuldade neste tempo verbal, porque para todas as pessoas o verbo ficará igual , exceto na terceira pessoa do singular ( he , she , it ), onde o verbo receberá um “s”.

Pay Attention:

- Se o verbo terminar em: s, s, ch, sh , x , z ou o , acrescenta-se “es”. George does his homework every night. Leo watches TV every Saturday night. He never brushes his teeth.

- Se o verbo terminar em “y” precedido de uma consoante, tira-se o y e acrescenta-se “ies”.

Kate studies at night. Karen cries at the end of every romantic film.

- Se o “y” vier após uma vogal, acrescenta-se apenas o “s”.

Patricia usually plays cards by herself. Everybody says that I am too short.
