What is Present Simple Tense?
This one is really easy to remember. The simple present tense is always used for actions happening right now and actions regularly occurring. We form them by using the root form of the verb or by adding -s or -es to the end if it’s a singular third-person subject. For example:
- I am happy.
- She uses her old laptop once a week.
- They travel all the time.
