Welcome to my School Wednesday. I'll tell you some information of the verb 'to be' in English.
The verb 'to be' has three forms in the present tense, they're 'am, is, are'. We can't use that we like most of all. I am joking, of course. We must choose carefully the form of the verb as it depends on the subject. Singular subjects require singular forms of the verb, but plural ones - plural forms of it. As we say: 'she is, he is, it is' and 'you are, we are, they are' but 'I am'. Yo must learn it by heart and everything will okay.
Thus, I'll give some examples such as
'I'm cold. Can you close the window, please?'
'Steve is ill. He is in bed'
'It's ten o'clock. you're late again'
'Ann and I are good friends'
'Your keys are on the table'
(These all examples are from 'Essential grammar in use, Raymond Murphy, I do love his grammar books)
The firs lesson is over. i hope you'll like it.
thanks for your attention. Leave your comments.
