The Simple Present Tense of the verbs

The use of Simple Present Tense Verbs
We use the Simple Tense of regular or irregular
verbs when describing a daily action, something
we do regularly and/or when we talk in a general
sense.
What is special about this tense is that the
verbs always take a  S  in the 3rd person
singular.
I LISTEN to t.v.. I READ a book. I DO my bed
He LISTENS to t.v.. He READS a book. She
MEMORIZES her vocabulary.

Exceptions for 3rd person singular
If a verb finishes with  y  and is preceeded by
a consonant we have to change the  y  for an
 i  and add _es.
To study becomes
She STUDIES
He CRIES
To cry becomes

An other exception
If the verb finishes with the lettre  o ,
 x ,  s ,  sh  or  ch  we have to add
__es to ending of the verb.

misses To wash washes To catch catches
