Present simple form:


Present simple form:
Subject which can be either  noun or pronoun
if it's pronoun,then your English pronouns are as follows: 
I,we,you,they + verb (infinitive)+ complement
(He,she,it (Pronouns)  + verb(Not inf.)
Infinitive verb doesn't take any addition such as -ing, -s , -es, -ed,...etc

non-infinitive verb does take the following addition s,es, or ies only since we're talking about the present simple tense.

Some examples of the present simple:

I drive to work everyday. The keyword here is 'everyday' which means it's a habit that happens everyday.

He , she , it + works,does,drives....

works,does,drives are non-infinitive verbs
but how am I going to put the appropriate addition to the verb.Should I put -s,-es,or -ies?
Let's recall this rule from nouns.Normally,we add 's' to verbs when there's he,she,or it .
Remember: A singular noun ending in s, x, z, ch, sh makes the plural by adding-es. The same rule applies to verbs.

Let's take more examples:

I go to school,but he/she goes to school.
They/we/you/I like to work hard.
The computer calculates numbers. It works really good.
The infinitive verbs are calculate,work,go,and like. Did you see how they are changed in the sentences above? Cool!
