ABOUT PRESENT SIMPLE

The simple present is a verb tense with two main uses. To express habits, general truths, repeated actions or unchanging situations, emotions and wishes. Important!!! The 3rd person (HE, SHE, IT) is formed by adding -s or -es to the end.

Sentences - e. g.
I go to school every day.
She goes to school every day.

The negative form of present simple, you need to use do not (don't - shorter way) or does not (doesn't - shorter way) which is used for the 3rd person ONLY!!! (HE, SHE, IT).

Sentences - e. g.
I don't go to school every day.
She doesn't go to school every day.

We use do and does to make questions with the present simple. We use does for the third person singular (HE, SHE, IT) and do for the others, also with question words : where, what and when.

Sentences - e. g.
Do you like school?
Does she like school?
When do you go to school?
