Most of the verbs take letter “-s”. Example: Work = Works 2. Verbs ending in “sh/ch/o/x/ss” add “-es”. Example: Teach = Teaches Wash = Washes Go= Goes Fix=Fixes Kiss=Kisses 3. Verbs ending in a consonant + “y”. Drop “y” and add “-ies” Example: Fly=Flies / Study=Studies Study toolbox Negative Form Interrogative Form I don’t work Do I work? You don’t work Do you work? He doesn’t work Does he work? She doesn’t work Does she work? It doesn’t work Does it work? We don’t work Do we work? You don’t work Do you work? They don’t work Do they work?

No, I don’t. No, she doesn’t. Note: We don’t use do or does with be. Are you a nurse? NOT Do you be a nurse? I work You work He works She works It works You work We work They work
