Present Simple

Usos del Present Simple:

Se usa para hablar de situaciones permanentes o algo que es siempre verdad:-Insects have six legs

-What temperature does the water boils at?

-What time do you catch the bus?Como formar el Present simple:

Oraciones afirmativas:

Formamos el presente simple con el SUJETO + EL VERBO, debemos recordar que cuando el sujeto es he, she o it, tenemos que agregarle al verbo una s.

HE/SHE/IT + SOraciones negativas:

El verbo auxililiar para todos los sujetos que no sean he she o it es do, por lo que para formar el negativo, usamos el verbo auxiliar Do not (Dont) luego del sujeto y antes del verbo.Eg: I dont speak Greek.

I/YOU/WE/THEY DONT Debemos tomar en cuenta que para he, she e it se usa como auxiliar does, por lo que para formar el negativo, usaremos do not (doesnt) ) luego del sujeto y antes del verbo.Eg. He doesnt speek Greek.

HE/SHE/IT DOESNT En las oraciones negativas no es necesario agregar la s luego de he, she o it.

HE/SHE/IT + SFormulacin de preguntas

Usamos los verbos auxiliares do y does, al igual que cuando se escriben oraciones negativas. En este caso es necesario poner el verbo auxiliar antes del sujeto.




ITTHEYDo you read comics?

Does he play football?

Yes I do/ No, I dont

Yes he does/ No he doesnt.

Reglas ortogrficas del present simple

En el presente simple, la tercera persona del singular positivo (HE/SHE/IT) agrega el sufijo S. (HE/SHE/IT + S) A veces la forma de escribir el verbo cambia.

Con los verbos terminados en s, -ss, -ch, -sh, -x, -o agregamos ES, en vez de solo S.

s, -ss, -ch, -sh, -x, -o +ES.

Example: I watch- she watches I finish - David finishes Cuando el verbo termina en consonante y una y se cambia la y por -ies

Consonante + y cambia por iesExample: I cry- The baby cries I study- she studies

Cuando el verbo termina en vocal e y, entonces agregamos la-s como siempre.

Vocal + y agrega iesExample: I enjoy- he enjoys

I play- Melannie plays.
