How is it going?



Here below, there is a brief explanation for you about how to form third persons of singular in the present simple tense in English language.


In English, the present simple tense is used for habits and routines, something that we usually do every day.


You have to bear in mind the following rules for thirds persons of singular, in other words, HE - SHE - IT




1) If the verb ends in -----> -sh, -ch, -x, consonat + O, -ss.

We add the sufix -ES to the verb.

Examples

watch -----> watches

wash -----> washes

box -----> boxes

go -----> goes

kiss -----> kisses


He goes home after work.



2) If the verb ends in -y, and there is a vowel before.

We add -S

Examples

buy -----> buys


She buys a new necklace.



3) If the verb ends in -y but there is before a consonant.

We change -Y by -ies

Examples

cry -----> cries

dry -----> dries

fly -----> flies


The fly flies in the room.



4) For the rest of the others verbs that don´t follow the rules above.

We add -S

Examples

run -----> runs

write -----> writes

eat -----> eats

draw -----> draws


and so on...


My brother draws beautiful pictures.
