The simple present is a most straightforward English grammar concept. It’s used to describe a current or continuous action, but there are a few rules to know first. I’ll cover the present simple tense, see how it’s formed, and take a look at some present simple examples that I whipped up for you.
What Does Simple Present Tense Mean?
The simple present tense is really just a verb tense that indicates an action is currently happening or is regularly occurring. You can use the verb as it is or add suffixes like “-e” or “-es’” based on some simple rules.
The simple present tense is usually used with the adverbs always, never, and sometimes. It’s a simple concept once you get the hang of it, so I’ll break it down further for you.
How Do We Form Present Simple?
Usually, the present simple tense is formed by taking the root form of the verb as it is or, depending on the person, by adding -s or -es at the end.
For example, the simple present tense of “walk” is “walks.”
To form a standard sentence in the simple present tense, you need a subject and a verb. The subject can be a noun or even a pronoun, and the verb must agree with the subject in number (singular or plural). For example:
- I walk to school every day.
- You never listen to me.
- He always eats pizza on Fridays.
- We sometimes play games after school.
- They always watch TV on Saturday mornings.
What Are the Rules of Present Simple?
There are a few simple present tense rules I always remember. First, use the base form of the verb. This means that you don’t need to add “-s” or “-es” to the end of regular verbs in the present simple.
For example, you would say “I walk to school” instead of “I walks to school.”
You only need to add one of these suffixes if the subject is he, she, or it.
So, you would say “She walks to school,” not “It walks to school.”
Second, make sure your verbs agree with your subjects. If you have a plural subject, you must use a plural verb form.
For example, you would say “They walk to school,” not “They walks to school.”
What Is Simple Present Tense Formula?
I’ve got a formula for the simple present tense that will help you remember more easily: (Subject + Verb + Complement) or (Subject + Verb). Boom!
Verbs in the simple present tense are always in the base form, which means they don’t change no matter if the subject used is singular or plural. To make a sentence sound more formal, I would add “s” or “es” to the end of the verb. Make sense?
- He plays tennis. (base form)
- She writes a letter. (base form)
- They live in New York. (base form)
What Are Three Forms of Present Simple?
There are three ways to form the present simple tense in English grammar.
The first method is by using the present form of the verb. This works with “I” and “you” pronouns and for plural subjects.
- I go to school every day.
- They know all about Britain’s history.
The second way of forming present simple is by adding the “-s” termination to a verb. This only works when the subject of the sentence is singular.
- Maria knows how to talk to children.
- Tony deals with these things daily.
For the third form, just add “-es” at the end of the verb. The rule is that the subject has to be singular, and the verb needs to end in o, x, z, ss, ch, th, gh, or sh.
- He dashed to help her with the groceries. (from the verb “to dash”)
- She relaxes every day after work. (from the verb “to relax”)
Examples of Using Simple Present Tense
In English, the simple present tense describes habits, unchanging situations, general truths, and things that happen regularly. For example, I would use the simple present to say, “I walk to school every day.”
We also use the simple present to describe how often something happens with adverbs of frequency like always, usually, often, sometimes, and never.
For example, “I never miss a day of school.”
The simple present can also describe future events that are scheduled or planned. For example, “My plane leaves at 6:00 PM.”
Other present simple examples:
- The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
- Tons of people wake up every day and go to school or work.
- At night, they eat dinner and go to bed.
Simple Present Question Examples
Asking a question in the present simple, you need to use the auxiliary verb “do.”
For example, if you wanted to ask someone their name, you would say, “Do you have a name?”
To form a question, you simply take the statement form of the present simple and add the auxiliary verb do before the subject.
For example, “I am eating breakfast” becomes “Do you eat breakfast?”. Easy, right?
If there’s already an auxiliary verb used in the sentence, such as in the case of “She is singing a song,” you would simply move that auxiliary verb to before the subject, so the question becomes, “Is she singing a song?”
Simple Present Negative Examples
To make the simple present negative, add “do not” or “don’t” before the verb.
For example, to make the sentence “I eat breakfast every day” negative, you would say “I don’t eat breakfast every day.”
You can also use contractions like “don’t” and “doesn’t” to make negative sentences.
For instance, the negative form of “She eats breakfast every day” would be “She doesn’t eat breakfast every day.”
The rules of the present simple are pretty straightforward. In short, you use the present simple when you want to talk about habits or permanent situations. The present simple is a basic verb tense in English used to indicate habitual or regular actions. To form or use the present simple, we start with the base form of the verb (the infinitive without “to”). I hope my guide helped you better understand the concept!

The Power of Present Simple Tense: Embracing the Timeless Essence of Language Present simple, also known as the simple present tense or present indefinite, holds a special place in the realm of English grammar. With its straightforward structure and timeless nature, it allows us to express an array of information in a clear and concise manner. In this comprehensive exploration of present simple, we will uncover its many facets and applications, delving into affirmative, negative, and interrogative sentences. We'll uncover its ability to convey facts, habits, routines, and general truths. Moreover, we will examine its use in scheduled events, daily activities, and permanent situations, along with its frequent companions—frequency adverbs and time expressions. Formation and Structure of Present Simple The present simple tense is characterized by its straightforward formation, making it one of the easiest verb tenses to use. For regular verbs, we simply use the base form of the verb for all subjects, except for the third-person singular, where we add "-s" or "-es" to the base verb. For example: I read books every day. You play the guitar beautifully. He goes to school early in the morning. She watches movies on weekends. They eat pizza on Fridays. We study English diligently. Affirmative Sentences in the Present Affirmative sentences in the simple present tense express general truths, habitual actions, or ongoing situations. They serve to state a fact or a routine without any negation. For example: The sun rises in the east. We go swimming on weekends. She works at a hospital. Negative Sentences in the Present Negative sentences in the present simple are formed by adding "do not" (don't) or "does not" (doesn't) before the base form of the verb. They express the absence of an action or a state. For example: I don't like spicy food. He doesn't watch horror movies. We don't live in the city. Interrogative Sentences in the Present Interrogative sentences in the present simple are formed by placing the auxiliary verb "do" (for all subjects except the third person singular) or "does" (for the third person singular) before the base form of the verb. They are used to ask questions about actions, routines, or states. For example: Do you play the piano? Does she go to the gym regularly? Do they study English? Singular and Plural Subjects in the Present Present simple can be used with both singular and plural subjects, making it versatile for various situations and contexts. For example: The cat meows when it's hungry. (singular subject) Cats meow when they're hungry. (plural subject) Verb Agreement with Third-Person Singular Subjects One essential aspect of the present simple tense is the verb agreement with third-person singular subjects. When the subject is in the third person singular form (he, she, it), we add "-s" or "-es" to the base form of the verb. For example: He reads books every day. She plays the guitar beautifully. It goes to school early in the morning. Present Simple for Facts, Routines, and General Truths The simple present tense serves as a conduit for expressing facts, routines, and general truths. Whether we speak of personal opinions, scientific facts, or universal principles, present simple serves as the perfect vehicle for clear communication. Opinions and Beliefs: I believe that honesty is the best policy. (expressing a personal belief) Scientific Facts and Laws: The Earth orbits around the Sun. (stating a scientific fact) Universal Truths: Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius. (expressing a universal truth) Daily Routines and Habitual Actions Present simple enables us to describe the activities that constitute our daily lives. Whether we talk about our daily routines, habits, or recurring actions, present simple provides the foundation for these descriptions. Daily Schedules and Timetables: The train departs at 7 AM every day. (stating a fixed schedule) Repetitive Activities and Routines: She practices the piano every evening. (describing a daily routine) Permanent States and Conditions: The sun rises in the east. (expressing a permanent state) Frequency Adverbs and Time Expressions To add nuance and precision to our present simple sentences, frequency adverbs and time expressions come into play. They help us provide more context and detail about the frequency and regularity of actions. Frequency Adverbs: He always drinks coffee in the morning. (indicating a frequent action) Time Expressions: I visit my grandparents every Sunday. (stating a specific time for the action) Present Simple in Various Contexts The flexibility of present simple is truly remarkable, as it finds application in a wide range of contexts and settings. From user manuals and guides to instructions and rules, from captions and descriptions to headlines and news summaries, present simple is omnipresent in our daily lives. User Manuals and Guides: Press the power button to turn on the device. (providing step-by-step instructions) Instructions and Rules: Do not park in the reserved area. (stating rules and regulations) Public Announcements and Notices: The event starts at 8 PM sharp. (indicating fixed arrangements and plans) Simple Descriptions of Objects: The vase is made of porcelain. (describing an object) Expressing Personal Preferences and Opinions Present simple allows us to share our personal preferences and opinions with ease, as it suits the directness of such statements. Expressing Preferences: I prefer tea over coffee. (sharing a personal preference) Stating Opinions: The movie is entertaining. (expressing a personal opinion) Present Simple in Narratives and Storytelling In narratives, stories, and anecdotes, present simple brings events to life with its dynamic and vivid quality, making the storytelling experience captivating. Narrating Events in Stories or Anecdotes: The hero defeats the villain and saves the day. (depicting events in the present) Present Simple in Factual Reporting The use of present simple in factual reporting ensures clarity and accuracy, presenting information in a neutral and unbiased manner. Reporting Facts and Findings: The research study concludes that exercise improves health. (presenting research findings) Expressing Emotions and Feelings When it comes to expressing emotions and feelings, present simple offers a direct and heartfelt means of communication. Indicating Emotions: She loves spending time with her family. (expressing love) Expressing Feelings: He dislikes horror movies. (stating a feeling of dislike) Explaining General Facts and Principles Present simple is an ideal choice when explaining general facts, principles, or truths, as it imparts a sense of universality and timelessness to the information. For example: Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius. Plants need sunlight to grow. The Earth revolves around the Sun. Giving Definitions and Explanations When giving definitions or explanations of objects, concepts, or terms, the present simple is often employed to deliver straightforward and concise descriptions. For example: A computer is an electronic device used for processing data. Photosynthesis is the process through which plants convert sunlight into energy. Discussing Daily Habits and Lifestyle Present simple is the go-to tense for discussing daily habits, routines, and aspects of one's lifestyle. It enables us to paint a picture of regular activities and behaviors. For example: I wake up at 6 AM every morning. She brushes her teeth before going to bed. They have lunch at the cafeteria. Describing Natural Processes and Cycles When describing natural processes or cycles, present simple helps convey the regularity and routine nature of these phenomena. For example: The moon orbits around the Earth. Rivers flow into the ocean. Expressing Fixed Schedules and Timetables Present simple finds extensive use in expressing fixed schedules, timetables, and other events that occur on a regular basis. For example: The train leaves at 9 AM every day. The store opens at 8 AM and closes at 6 PM. Discussing Future Events in Fixed Schedules The present simple tense can also be employed to discuss future events when they are part of fixed schedules or timetables. This usage conveys the certainty and regularity of the upcoming events. For example: The conference starts at 9 AM tomorrow. The train departs every hour from the station. The movie premieres next Friday. Expressing Opinions and Thoughts Simple present tense is not only used for stating facts but also for expressing opinions, thoughts, and beliefs. When discussing one's perspective or stance on a matter, the present simple provides a clear and direct way to communicate. For example: I believe that education is essential for personal growth. She thinks that traveling broadens the mind. We feel that this decision is necessary for the project. Describing People's Characteristics Present simple is commonly used to describe general or habitual characteristics of individuals. It helps paint a picture of someone's personality, traits, or behaviors. For example: He has a great sense of humor. She loves adventure and exploring new places. They are hardworking and dedicated. Public Announcements and Notices In public announcements, notices, or advertisements, the present simple is a popular choice for conveying important information in a clear and straightforward manner. For example: "The museum opens at 10 AM and closes at 6 PM." "The event takes place on Saturday at the community center." "The store offers a 50% discount on all items this weekend." Repeated Actions The present simple tense is the go-to choice when expressing actions that are repeated regularly, whether in the past, present, or future. It is used to describe habits, routines, or traditions. For example: She reads a book every night before going to bed. The restaurant serves lunch specials on weekdays. They practice basketball drills every afternoon. Occurrences That Happen Regularly Occurrences or events that happen regularly, without variation, are best described using the present simple tense. This emphasizes the routine and predictability of such events. For example: The sun rises in the east and sets in the west every day. The company holds a monthly meeting to discuss progress. The train arrives at the station at the same time every morning. Timeless Actions and Events The present simple is also employed to describe timeless actions and events that remain true over time. It is suitable for statements that hold constant regardless of the specific time frame. For example: Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius. The Earth orbits around the Sun. Light travels faster than sound. Conclusion: The Present Simple Tense As we journey through the intricacies of the English language, present simple stands as a timeless companion, enabling us to articulate our thoughts, routines, facts, and preferences with clarity and precision. From the pages of newspapers to social media posts, from daily conversations to academic lectures, simple present leaves its mark on our linguistic landscape, showcasing its power in an array of contexts. So, embrace the essence of present simple as you navigate the ever-evolving world of language, and let it be the foundation of your expressions, narratives, and interactions. With its unwavering presence, present simple guides us in unveiling the beauty of language and expressing the truth and essence of the human experience.

Mom who makes 6 figures through Etsy side hustle: 5 steps to start your own printables shop
These days, there's no shortage of options for those looking for a side hustle. You can rap on Fiverr , start a blog , organize people's homes or even make some weird deliveries . It all depends on what pockets of time you have available and what you're interested in doing.
One particular side hustle that people have found to be lucrative and not too hard to dive into is selling printables on marketplaces like Etsy and Shopify. A printable is a two-dimensional design, like a card or a worksheet, that people can buy online and print at home, or send electronically.
"I highly recommend that people start with selling on a platform like Etsy that already has buyers," says Julie Berninger , who makes about $10,000 per year selling printables on Etsy and who teaches a printables course herself. On platforms like Shopify or a blog, "it can take a lot of work to acquire customers."
Here's how to start a printables side hustle on Etsy according to Berninger and Rachel Jimenez , who brings in six figures per year selling printables on Etsy.
Consider, 'what do people need?'
There are several ways to figure out what to make.
- "Try to think of an upcoming seasonal holiday or event or special occasion," says Berninger. Is Halloween around the corner? Is Easter just a few months away? How about Chinese New Year? Let your calendar guide you in terms of what could be relevant and in-demand.
- Another option: "If you start with your strengths, your interests, things that are unique to you, that will help narrow down the focus," says Jimenez. What would you make for another expert bowler, for example? Or someone who's got a horseback riding competition coming up this weekend?
- Finally, consider "what do people need?" says Jimenez. Say it's the beginning of the school year and you are a parent. If it's customary to give teachers a gift on the first day of school, can you make a printable e-card? Or even a printable gift card holder? Consider people's various pain points and think, "can I solve this problem with something that I could sell on Etsy?" says Jimenez.
Berninger recommends getting ideas on sites like Pinterest. "I type in different holidays or special occasions plus the word 'digital product' or 'printable template' and then I get ideas," she says. Don't copy what's already out there, but let it inform the kinds of products people are looking for and what you might make.
Use Google Docs, Excel or Canva to make your product
When it comes to making your product, use the tool that makes the most sense.
If you're making a worksheet, for example, Word or Google Docs could suffice. If you're making a spreadsheet, Excel could work. For anything more graphic, "we recommend starting with a program like Canva," says Berninger. "It's free. It's easy to use. It's just a browser-based graphic design tool."
Berninger also recommends printing out your product once you've finished creating it to ensure the design actually works the way you intended it to.
Create 'beautiful listing images'
Once you've created your item and before you upload it, you want to make sure you have "really appealing and eye catching and beautiful listing images," says Jimenez.
Think about how people could use your item or what the best layout to present it is. In the case of a gift card holder, "you would probably do better if you actually printed it out and you put an actual gift card in there" to show potential buyers what it could look like, says Berninger.
With printable cards, you could find a picture of a desk and digitally edit a photo of your printable on it "so it looks like a printable that's on a desk," says Berninger. Peruse Etsy as well to see how other sellers are presenting their items.
Use smart keywords
When it's time to list, there are three components of the listing that will help you get noticed: the title, the description and the tags.
"With Etsy, you're just trying to make it the most searchable thing possible," says Berninger, "using smart keywords and strategy so that when someone goes on Etsy and they're typing in whatever they're looking for, you show up on page one."
Some keywords to use in your title, description and tags are obvious, like the name of your item. But there may be some other terms people use to look for it that you're not aware of.
To find them, Jimenez recommends using a tool like Ubersuggest, a Google Chrome extension which shows you how often a given term has been searched, as well as a series of other similar terms that people might use within the category. For "hanukkah card," for example, Ubersuggest lists "happy hanukkah card," "hanukkah card greetings" and "funny hanukkah card." Depending on what's most relevant, any of these could be used in your title, tags and description together.
When you insert your new keywords, make sure they sound natural wherever you use them.
'Price right in the middle'
In terms of figuring out how much to charge, "I like to just price right in the middle of whatever else is already out there," says Berninger. Pricing too high could turn people away and pricing too low could make people question the quality of the product, she says.
Remember, Etsy charges 20 cents per listing as well as a transaction fee that's 6.5% of the price of your item.
Once your item is live, that's it! "We call it the 'set it and forget it' of side hustles," says Berninger.
Etsy sees millions of buyers. "If you get your title and your tags right and you did the market research upfront," says Jimenez, "the algorithm should work for you."
