The

Positive Sentences


The

Helping Verbs

Some sentences in the Present Simple must be written with the use of helping verbs. These verbs are: do / does

  • We use the helping verbs :

  • In negative sentences: do not does not

  • In yes /no questions: Do they…? Does she…?

  • In wh questions: Why do you…? Where does she…?

Very Important!

When we use do / does the verb comes in the base form:

He works He doesn’t work

She washes She doesn’t wash


The

Negative Sentences

In order to form negative sentences we use the helping verbs: does not (doesn’t) or do not (don’t)


The

Yes / No Questoions


The

Wh Questoions


The

Wh Subject Question

This is the only type of question in which:

  • We do not use the helping verb do / does

  • The verb will come with the s, es, ies

    For example:

  • Who goes to work every day?

    Mothergoes to work every day.

  • What makes so much noise?

    The fridge makes so much noise.


The

Time Expressions

  • One - word time expressions such as:

    always, often, generally, usually, normally, never, sometimes

    Will always come between the subject and the verb.

    He always gets to school on time.

  • More-than-one –word time expressions such as:

    every day, once a week, on Sundays, in the summer

    Will come at the beginning or the end of the sentence
