To form Present Simple, we:
🔹use the base form or infinitive (without to) with I, we, you, they;
🔹add -s to the base form or infinitive with he, she, it;
🔹use am/is/are as affirmative forms of the verb to be.
In questions and negative sentences, we normally use do/does/don’t/doesn’t + the base form or infinitive.
🔹We use am/is/are + not as negative forms of the verb to be.
🔹Modal verbs don’t require auxiliaries do and does in questions or negative sentences (e.g. Can you help me? We shouldn’t talk about these changes right now).
To form Past Simple, we:
🔹add -ed to the base form of regular verbs;
🔹need to remember special Past Simple forms of irregular verbs;
🔹use was/were as affirmative forms of the verb to be.
In questions and negative sentences, we normally use did/didn’t + the base form or infinitive.
🔹We use was/were + not as negative forms of the verb to be.
🔹Modal verbs don’t require the auxiliary did in questions or negative sentences (e.g. He couldn’t do that task).
