Present tense: Present simple Tense

I Love You Present Tense.-John Greer

Simple Present Tense

1. Simple Present Tense:

Key: The present tense is the base of the verb. So, subject is followed by ‘be’ form or verb present tense but if the subject is third person- the verb is followed by ‘s’ or ‘es’.
