  1. 1. PRESENT SIMPLE / PRESENT CONTINUOUS CHART Write a similar chart and complete it to distinguish between both tenses as regards FORM and USES following the prompts given. Consult different sources. You are given some suggestions below. PRESENT SIMPLE PRESENT CONTINUOUS FORM (How you make up the tense) Include: • Any spelling rules. • Negative / interrogative structures (Indicate the auxiliary verbs) - Affirmative: Subject + base of the verb. (With –s/-es if is 3º person of singular). Ex. I work. He works. - Negative: Subject + don’t/doesn’t + verb. Ex: She doesn’t work. - Interrogative: do/does + Subject + verb. Ex: Do you work? [When the verb finishing in consonant is with –ies] - Affirmative: Subject + [am/is/are] + verb-ing. Ex. I am singing. - Negative: Subject + [am not/isn’t/aren’t] + verb-ing. Ex: I am not singing. - Interrogative: [am/is/are] + subject+ verb-ing. Ex: are you singing? [The ending “-e”: ride-riding.] [Verb finishing in –y: pay-paying] [finishing in vocal + consonant: run-running. USE (When we must use each sentence) Include the main uses for each tense with similar examples to compare them. - A regular habit or rutine. Ex: my sister works on Sundays. - A general truth or scientific fact. Ex: London is a multicultural city - Stative verbs. Ex: I think she is attractive. - An action which is happening now. Ex: Alex is singing right now. - Temporary action. Ex: They are learning French this year. - Also to express complain or admiration about habitual behavior: Ex: She is always crying. TIME EXPRESSIONS (Name time expressions that we can use with each tense) Always, usually, generally, regularly, occasionally, frequently, often, sometimes, rarely, seldom, never, at 1 o’clock, at night, in the morning, on Fridays, every week, once a month, how often…? Now, right now, at the moment, this year, at present. FUTURE SENSE Schedules and timetables: Ex: The film starts at 7.00 Sometimes use the present continuous to indicate that something will or won’t happen in the near future. Ex: I am meeting some friends after work.
  2. 2. TIME EXPRESSIONS STATIVE VERBS: Define what a stative verb is. Make a list of main stative verbs in groups if possible.
