In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the four main uses of this tense, and how to avoid common mistakes that many people make with it. So let’s start. Welcome to my series of lessons on the tenses. Before we start, as always, if you have any questions at all, just ask me in the comments section below, and I will talk to you there. OK, in this lesson, I will teach you the four main uses of the present simple tense – that is, to talk about habits and routines, permanent situations, facts about the world, and finally, the very important – talking about states with state verbs. And there’s a quiz at the end to check your understanding. Alright well first – what is the present simple tense? Well, quite simply, it’s the most basic tense in English and it’s the first tense that you will learn in any English course that you take. It’s very easy: you just take a subject and you add a verb. A subject is a word like I – You – We – They – He – She – It – or a name like Mike or Emma. Let’s take ‘I’ for now. And let’s add a verb – say ‘drink.’ Let’s complete this sentence so it sounds meaningful – “I drink tea every morning.” And there you have the present simple tense. Now, what does that sentence mean? Well, when I say “I drink tea every morning” you know that I do the action regularly. Now you see a timeline on the screen. Let’s say this side is the past, over on that side is the future, and in the middle is right now. So you know that I drink tea on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and so on. You can see that it repeats. So this is a habit. And this sentence shows us the first use of the present simple tense – that is to talk about habits and routines, things that we do regularly or repeatedly. Now it would be wrong to say “I’m drinking tea every morning” – because this is a habit, and for habits you must use the present simple tense. Alright, here are some more examples: “Mike visits his parents on weekends.” Again, this is something that Mike does regularly – every weekend. In our next example, “Emma usually has dinner at eight thirty.” Meaning that it’s part of her routine to eat dinner at eight thirty every day. In both of these sentences, you should NOT use the continuous form – remember that. OK, I want you to notice one other thing in these examples. You can see how frequently or how often the action happens – every day, on weekends etc. When we talk about habits or routines, we normally use these kinds of expressions. The word ‘every’, for example, is very common – in phrases like every morning, afternoon, every day, week, month etc. I said “I drink tea every morning.” Another example is “They go to Mexico on vacation every year.” You can also use prepositions like ‘on’ or ‘in’. As in “Mike visits his parents on weekends.” or “Dennis goes fishing on Fridays.” And then there are expressions like once a week, three times a year etc. For example, “We visit the dentist twice a year for a checkup.” Apart from these expressions, we also use what are called ‘frequency adverbs’. If you remember, one of our examples was “Emma usually has dinner at eight thirty.” The word ‘usually’ is a frequency adverb. There are many others like this – if you do something all the time, that is one hundred percent of the time, then you can use ‘always’. For example, “Meena always walks to work.” That means she never takes the bus or she never drives to work. But hey, there’s another frequency adverb there – ‘never’. And that means that something happens zero percent of the time. It does not happen at all.

Tenses in English are made of a time and an aspect. English recognises 3 times (past, present and future) and 3 aspects (simple, continuous and perfect.) An aspect is the character of a verb. It adds extra information to the verb’s meaning and reflects the perception of the speaker. Join Dan to find out more. Visit our website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/towards-advanced/unit-30/session-1 TRANSCRIPT Are you tense about tense? Well, don’t be! In this session’s masterclass I’ll let you into a little secret of all English tenses – it’s all about character. After this. Ok guys. In this masterclass we’re going to get a little bit theoretical, ok? So try and hold on. Tenses in English are made up of two things. A time and an aspect. Now almost all languages and cultures recognise three times: past, present and future. But what about an aspect? An aspect is the character of a verb. It adds extra information to the verb’s meaning and reflects the perception of the speaker. Now, depending on who you talk to, there are between two and four aspects, but I like to say three. They are simple, continuous and perfect and all three of them can be used in past, present and future. The simple aspect is actually not an aspect at all. It does not modify the verb in terms of its meaning, only in terms of its form. And this is because, in all cases, the unmodified verb is enough to express exactly the meaning that the speaker wants to say at the time of speaking. They broadly fall into three categories. We have the long term general truth. For example, I like studying English. We have the instantaneous. For example, I now pronounce you man and wife. And we have the habitual. For example, I woke up every day at 6am last year. The continuous aspect is formed with some sort of be plus verbING. The focus of this aspect is primarily upon the duration of an event. All progressive forms contain characteristics of temporariness, unfinishedness or in progress-ness. The progressive aspect tends to disregard the end of an action and view the event from the centre. So, an action might be happening at the moment of speaking. For example, I’m making a video right now. Or, around a certain time. For example, before we met I was living in Scotland. Or, simultaneously when another action occurs. For example, When you get home, I’ll be working in the office The perfect aspect is formed with some version of have plus the past participle. Perfect aspects focus on bridging two times together, and connecting events between one time and another, often through relevancy. An event in the past might be relevant to the present moment. An event in the future could be connected in some way to the present or the past. Perfect verb phrases can describe states. For example, I’ve loved you since I first met you. Actions. For example, I will have gone to the gym by the time you get home. And habits. For example, my father had started work at 9 o’clock every day for the last 20 years. And of course we can link aspects to create perfect continuous verb phrases. These combine the forms of their two base aspects. For example, have plus been plus verbING, and they combine their meanings. So we can create verb phrases which focus on actions or events with duration with relevancy to more than one time period. Did you get it? Of course you got it. Now for more information, go to our website bbclearningenglish.com. I’ve been Dan, you’ve been fantastic and I’ll see you next time guys. Remember, don’t get tense! It’s all about character.

To download the "Johnny Grammar's Word Challenge" app for free, visit our LearnEnglish website: http://bit.ly/1tVk59X We don't use future tenses with 'when', 'while', 'as soon as', 'until', 'after' or 'before': When I get home, I'll have dinner. We use the present continuous, not the future continuous with things which will be in progress in the future: I'll call you while I'm cooking supper. In time clauses, we use the present perfect to talk about things which will have finished in the future. I'll get a good job when I have passed my exams. The clause with the time word can go first or second. When it goes first, use a comma: When I get home, I'll have dinner. I'll have dinner when I get home.

Past Tense vs. Present Tense: – Used to / didn’t use to = past tense – Don’t use used to / didn’t use to for present tense sentences. – Instead use: present simple + usually for present tense sentences. – Example: I usually play football every weekend. Concept Checking Questions (CCQs) Summary of Functions and Uses: – To talk about things that happened repeatedly or regularly or over a long period of time in the past, but are usually not true now. – Repeated actions in the past. – Past habits. – Past states. – Past preferences, feelings, thoughts, ideas, etc.

What is HABIT? What does HABIT mean? HABIT meaning - HABIT definition - HABIT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A habit is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously. The American Journal of Psychology (1903) defines a "habit, from the standpoint of psychology, a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience." Habitual behavior often goes unnoticed in persons exhibiting it, because a person does not need to engage in self-analysis when undertaking routine tasks. Habits are sometimes compulsory. New behaviours can become automatic through the process of habit formation. Old habits are hard to break and new habits are hard to form because the behavioural patterns which humans repeat become imprinted in neural pathways, but it is possible to form new habits through repetition. Habit formation is the process by which a behavior, through regular repetition, becomes automatic or habitual. This is modelled as an increase in automaticity with number of repetitions up to an asymptote. This process of habit formation can be slow. Lally et al. (2010) found the average time for participants to reach the asymptote of automaticity was 66 days with a range of 18–254 days. As the habit is forming, it can be analysed in three parts: the cue, the behavior, and the reward. The cue is the thing that causes the habit to come about, the trigger of the habitual behavior. This could be anything that one's mind associates with that habit and one will automatically let a habit come to the surface. The behavior is the actual habit that one exhibits, and the reward, a positive feeling, therefore continues the "habit loop". A habit may initially be triggered by a goal, but over time that goal becomes less necessary and the habit becomes more automatic. A variety of digital tools, online or mobile apps, have been introduced that are designed to support habit formation. For example, Habitica is a system that uses gamification, implementing strategies found in video games to real life tasks by adding rewards such as experience and gold. A review of such tools, however, suggests most are poorly designed with respect to theory and fail to support the development of automaticity. Shopping habits are particularly vulnerable to change at "major life moments" like graduation, marriage, birth of first child, moving to a new home, and divorce. Some stores use purchase data to try to detect these events and take advantage of the marketing opportunity. Some habits are known as "keystone habits", and these influence the formation of other habits. For example, identifying as the type of person who takes care of their body and is in the habit of exercising regularly, can also influence eating better and using credit cards less. In business, safety can be a keystone habit that influences other habits that result in greater productivity. The habit–goal interface or interaction is constrained by the particular manner in which habits are learned and represented in memory. Specifically, the associative learning underlying habits is characterized by the slow, incremental accrual of information over time in procedural memory. Habits can either benefit or hurt the goals a person sets for themselves. Goals guide habits by providing the initial outcome-oriented motivation for response repetition. In this sense, habits are often a trace of past goal pursuit. Although, when a habit forces one action, but a conscious goal pushes for another action, an oppositional context occurs. When the habit prevails over the conscious goal, a capture error has taken place. Behavior prediction is also derived from goals. Behavior prediction is to acknowledge the likelihood that a habit will form, but in order to form that habit, a goal must have been initially present. The influence of goals on habits is what makes a habit different from other automatic processes in the mind......

I shall study now. You will miss your class. Form or structure Simple future tense is formed by using helping verbs like 'shall' and 'will' along with the first form of the verb. Subject+ shall/ will+ first form of the verb • Normally shall is used with first person singular 'I' as well as plural 'we' but for practical purposes both shall or will can be used with 'I' and we. • With second person 'you' (singular/ plural) 'will' is used to indicate 'future tense' • With third person singular (he/she) and plural 'they' 'will' is used to indicate future tense Example I/we shall/ will buy sweets. You will buy sweets. He/she/they will buy sweets. Negative Negative is formed by adding not to will or shall. Subject+ shall/will not+ first form of the verb. Example I shall/ will not buy sweets. You will not buy sweets. He/ she/ they will not buy sweets. Interrogative Is formed by putting shall/ will before the subject. Shall/ will+ subject+ first form of verb Example Shall/ will I buy sweets? Will you buy sweets? Will he/she/they buy sweets? Please remember Simple future tense means simple pure future without indicating any intension, promise or planning. It merely states that a certain action will happen in future. We do not know about the intention or feeling of the subject. Inorder to emphasize the intention or promise or planning a few things have to be kept in mind but simple future tense has some other uses as well Other uses of simple future tense Simple future tense can also be used to express the opinion or assumption or intention of the speaker He will help you. They will sell their house (I am sure or I think so). To express general truth or habitual action Autumn will pass soon. (General truth) People will buy umbrellas in rainy season. Assumption With clauses expressing condition and time If you drop glass it will break. When you heat ice it will melt. Simple future tense can be used to show stronger emotions like, promise and determination. I will never desert you. We will always be loyal to our country. To express command like an imperative Or to express conclusions like. You shall leave this room at once. They shall regret their decision. Future with intention or intention+ plan Inorder to express 'intention' only 'will' is used Example 'I will leave soon' When we want to imply intention+ plan 'is/ am/ are going to' is used with the first form of the verb. Subject+ is/am/are going to+ verb Example I am going to buy this property. She is going to merry john. They are going to start a new business. All the above sentences have a background of a sentence which may be like this 1. I like this property 2. She loves john. 3. They have closed down old business. Please Remember- 'Going to' cannot be replaced by 'will' if it is a clear case of intention+ plan Going to form also express feeling of certainty It is going to rain. She is going to cry. Here let me remind you something we discussed in the lesson on present continuous tense The present continuous tense can also be used to express a planned future action. My aunt is leaving for New York tomorrow My sister is throwing a party on my birth day next week In such cases future time like tomorrow this evening, next week should be mentioned Exercise Fill in the blanks Use will/ shall/ going to or present continuous form to indicate future with the help of the verbs given in brackets 0 1. I am going to market. You (come) with me? 2. There are dark clouds in the sky. It (go) rain. 3. I (not tolerate) this injustice. 4. Please walk fast otherwise we (get) late for the show. 5. I am saving money. I (buy) this house. 6. He is working hard. He (win) this competition. 7. I (not come) to school tomorrow. I (go) to Delhi.

These verbs perform several important functions in the formation of sentences. They have multiple uses that need to be understood for an efficient use of English language both for the written and spoken purposes. English Grammar has total twelve modal. There are four modal pairs: Can could, may might, will would and shall should. And four single modals: Must ought need and dare. These modals express a number of ideas, attitudes and qualities such as: Ability, giving or asking permission reference to tenses present (part or future) possibility/probability, obligation, or to give advice to express invitation, to give or insistence, to extend innovation, to given order or command, to express habitual behavior, request etc. A careful use of these modal empowers one to express a variety of emotions effectively. Rules governing the use of Modal 1. All the modals mentioned above remain unchanged in form irrespective of the person of the subject. Example: I / we can, He/she /they can You can The negative is formed by putting 'not' after the Modal. I cannot we cannot You should not they must not The interrogative is formed by putting the auxiliary before the subject. Examples: Can I? May we? Should they? Modals are never used in continuous Tense. If a modal is used in a sentence in continuous tense, then the sentence will be written in the following manner: be + present participle forms the verb. Example: He will be going there. I may/ might be going there. They should/ be going there. In sentences other than continuous these the modal are mostly followed by infinitive or root forms of the verb. Example I must study. We/may can swim. He should come. You may come. But ought is always followed by infinitive with to. Example You ought to respect your elders. They ought to fight for their rights. Need and dare are used without to in most cases such as: You need not worry. How dare you come in without permission? But: Need and dare use to infinitive if the sentence is made with the helping verb 'do' Examples: You do need to remember the rules. He does not dare to challenge me. In conversation or spoken form these models are mostly shortened or have a contracted form. Example: I can't you mustn't He/ she/they won't (will not) etc Here is a list of contracted forms Shall not shan't should not shouldn't Will not won't would not wouldn't Must not mustn't need not needn't Ought not oughtn't Note: Dare not sounds better in full form. Some modals can be contracted in positive sentences as shown in examples below: I'll for will/ shall He'd for He would/should

What Are These? https://youtu.be/46S8UxB2QmU English Lesson 1 Present Continuous Tense Exercise https://youtu.be/JpF81w0ijJg English Lesson 1 Present Continuous Tense https://youtu.be/oVQM-gMymAY the PRESENT TENSE uses the verb's base form (write, work), or, for third-person singular subjects, the base form plus an -s ending (he writes, she works). The PRESENT TENSE indicates that an action is present, now, relative to the speaker or writer. Generally, it is used to describe actions that are factual or habitual -- things that occur in the present but that are not necessarily happening right now: "It rains a lot in Portland" is a kind of timeless statement. Compare that to the present progressive -- "It is raining in Portland" -- which means that something is, in fact, going on right now. "I use my bike to get around town." is in the present, but I'm not actually on my bike right now. An instantaneous sense of the present can be conveyed with either the simple present or the progressive: "Watch him now: he holds [is holding] down the control key at the same time that he presses [is pressing] the letter d." The present tense is used to describe events that are scheduled (by nature or by people): "High tide is at 3:15 p.m. The Super Bowl starts at 6:15 p.m." The present tense can be used to suggest the past with what is sometimes called the fictional (or historic) present: "We were watching the back door when, all of a sudden, in walks Dierdre." With verbs of communicating, the present tense can also suggest a past action: "Dierdre tells me that she took her brother to the dentist." Most oddly, the present tense can convey a sense of the future, especially with verbs such as arrive, come, and leave that suggest a kind of plan or schedule: "The train from Boston arrives this afternoon at two o'clock."
