Verb Conjugation & Spelling

We form the present tense using the base form of the infinitive (without the TO).

In general, in the third person we add 'S' in the third person.

Subject Verb The Rest of the sentence
I / you / we / they speak / learn English at home
he / she / it speaks / learns English at home

The spelling for the verb in the third person differs depending on the ending of that verb:

1. For verbs that end in -O, -CH, -SH, -SS, -X, or -Z we add -ES in the third person.

  • go – goes
  • catch – catches
  • wash – washes
  • kiss – kisses
  • fix – fixes
  • buzz – buzzes

2. For verbs that end in a consonant + Y, we remove the Y and add -IES.

  • marry – marries
  • study – studies
  • carry – carries
  • worry – worries

NOTE: For verbs that end in a vowel + Y, we just add -S.

  • play – plays
  • enjoy – enjoys
  • say – says


Negative Sentences in the Simple Present Tense

To make a negative sentence in English we normally use Don't or Doesn't with all verbs EXCEPT To Be and Modal verbs (can, might, should etc.).

  • Affirmative: You speak French.
    Negative: You don't speak French.

You will see that we add don't between the subject and the verb. We use Don't when the subject is I, you, we or they.

  • Affirmative: He speaks German.
    Negative: He doesn't speak German.

When the subject is he, she or it, we add doesn't between the subject and the verb to make a negative sentence. Notice that the letter S at the end of the verb in the affirmative sentence (because it is in third person) disappears in the negative sentence. We will see the reason why below.


Negative Contractions

Don't = Do not
Doesn't = Does not

I don't like meat = I do not like meat.

There is no difference in meaning though we normally use contractions in spoken English.


Word Order of Negative Sentences

The following is the word order to construct a basic negative sentence in English in the Present Tense using Don't or Doesn't.

Subject don't/doesn't Verb* The Rest of the sentence
I / you / we / they don't have / buy eat / like etc. cereal for breakfast
he / she / it doesn't

* Verb: The verb that goes here is the base form of the infinitive = The infinitive without TO before the verb. Instead of the infinitive To have it is just the have part.

Remember that the infinitive is the verb before it is conjugated (changed) and it begins with TO. For example: to have, to eat, to go, to live, to speak etc.

Examples of Negative Sentences with Don't and Doesn't:

  • You don't speak Arabic.
  • John doesn't speak Italian.
  • We don't have time for a rest.
  • It doesn't move.
  • They don't want to go to the party.
  • She doesn't like fish.

Imperative sentences.

An imperative sentence issues a request, gives a command, or expresses a desire or wish. They differ from sentences that make a statement (declarative sentences), express strong feeling (exclamatory sentences), or ask a question (interrogative sentence).

Typically, imperative sentences are short and simple, but they can be long, compound or complex sentences as well. Some of the simplest sentences in the English language are actually imperative sentences consisting of a single verb. Like this…

  • Stop!
  • Go.
  • Hurry!

Depending on the strength of emotion you want to convey, either a period or exclamation mark punctuates imperative sentences.

Examples Of Imperative sentences:

  • Pour me a glass of water.
  • Leave the package at the door.
  • Take me to the library.
  • Walk through this door and turn left at the next hallway.
  • Come over here, look at this specimen, and tell me what you think.
  • Put that down now!
  • Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Though it may be considered more polite to use the word “please” in imperative sentences, it’s not necessary. Without the word attached the sentence is still grammatically correct.

Купи хлеб, пожалуйста. Учи английский. Будь честным. Прекрати курить. Расслабься. Иди домой. Дай мне мой зонтик, пожалуйста. Прекрати болтать. Иди спать. Покажите мне ту сумку, пожалуйста.

Employee: Hello. Can I take your order?

Customer: Yes. I'd like a large pepperoni pizza with mushrooms and green peppers.

Employee: Would you like anything else?

Customer: Well, wait. Uh, can I make that a half-and-half pizza?

Employee: Sure. What would you like on each half?

Customer: Uh, what toppings do you have?

Employee: Well, we have Italian sausage, ham, mushrooms, onions, pineapple, black olives, green peppers, bacon, tomatoes, shrimp, clams, and squid.

Customer: Shrimp, clams, and squid!? What kind of pizza is that?

Employee: Uh, the manager spent some time overseas [Oh.], and thinks his new seafood pizza will be a hit with customers, but to be honest, the "Swimmer's Special," as he calls it, is an acquired taste.

Customer: Uh, I'll pass on the "Sink or Swim" special, but I'll have pepperoni and mushrooms on one half and green peppers and Italian sausage on the other. Oh, and could I get extra cheese on that pizza?

Employee: Alright. Would you care for any bread sticks or beverage with your order? [Well . . . I don't know.] Actually, we have a Friday night special going on right now [Oh!], and if you order any large pizza and drink, we'll throw in a free order of bread sticks, plus a three dollar coupon for use with your next pizza order.

Customer: Huh, sure, why not. And what drink comes with the pizza?

Employee: Either apple or orange juice.

Customer: I'll take orange juice.

Employee: Okay. Your total comes to fifteen nineteen, which includes tax. [Okay.] And could I have your name?

Customer: Uh, yeah, Jay Han.

Employee: Huh? Did you say "Jay Hand"?

Customer: No, it's "Han." Actually, it's a Korean name, but many people have difficulty making it out. Hey, maybe I SHOULD change my name to "Hand."

Employee: Ah, names are important; don't change it. [Okay.] Oh, and your address and telephone number?

Customer: It's 1340 South 16 East, and the phone number is 340-1870 (three-four-zero-eighteen, seventy).

Employee: Okay. Let me repeat your order. A large half-and-half pizza. [Okay.] One half with pepperoni [Yeah.] and mushrooms and the other with Italian sausage and green peppers. [Yeah.] Orange juice and your free order of bread sticks. Jan "Han," not "Hand," [Yeah, that's right.] at 1340 South 16 East, 340-1817. Is that correct?

Customer: Everything except for the phone number. It's 1870, not 1817.

Employee: Alright. Thanks for your order. It should arrive at your doorstep in 30 minutes or less, or you'll receive a free small pizza with your next order.

Customer: Great. Thanks.

Pre-reading task:give the definition to the words: milk, latte, coffee.

If you are like a lot of other North Americans, you like to start your day with a cup of coffee. Coffee contains a substance called caffeine. In humans caffeine is a stimulant. It makes you feel more awake and alert. Many people start their day with a cup of coffee because of the stimulant effects. In fact, about 90% of North Americans drink coffee.

Coffee is the third most popular drink in the world. Only tea and water are more popular than coffee. Coffee beans are actually the seeds of coffee cherries that grow on coffee plants. The beans are green when they are picked. Most of the coffee that is sold in coffee shops and grocery stores is brown. It is brown because the beans have been roasted at high temperatures. The roasting gives the beans their different flavours. Some coffees are darker and stronger tasting than other coffees. You can buy green coffee beans from some stores if you want to roast your own beans.

In North America, a latte is coffee that has steamed milk added to it. A cafe mocha is coffee with steamed milk and some chocolate added to it. Sometimes whipped cream is put on the top of cafe mocha. Coffees with different flavors added to them are very popular.

People today are probably more Aabout food than ever before. We worry about

eating foods that contain too much fat or carbohydrates and so we cut Вon things like meat, bread, potatoes and dairy products. The problem with making dramatic changes to our eating С like these is that we may also be cutting out good Dof iron or other vitamins and minerals. Suddenly we start feeling tired and irritable. The secret of a Ediet is to reduce foods that are high in cholesterol while, at the same time, eating those are Fin calcium and iron like soy protein, sesame seeds, spinach

and broccoli. Eating well does not mean that you should cut out all your favorite foods; it just means eating sensibly and trying to avoid too much Gfood!

Read the text. Find English equivalents for the following word combinations:

Кондитерская; бакалейно-гастрономический магазин; мясной магазин; крупы; мука; домашняя птица; огурцы; свекла; капуста; большой выбор мяса; магазин с самообслуживанием; прилавок; продавец; покупатель. Confectionery; grocery-deli; Butcher shop; cereals; flour; Domestic bird; cucumbers; beets; cabbage; a large selection of meat; store self-service; counter; dealer; buyer

When we want to buy something, we go to a shop. There are many kinds of shops in every town or city, but most of them have a food supermarket, a department store, men's and women's clothing stores, grocery, a bakery and a butchery.
In a food supermarket we can also buy many different things at once: sausages, fish, sugar, macaroni, flour, cereals, tea. At the butcher's there is a wide choice of meat and poultry. At the bakery you buy brown and white bread, rolls, biscuits.
Another shop we frequently go to is the greengrocery which is stocked by cabbage, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, carrots, beetroots, green peas and what not. Everything is sold here ready-weighed and packed. If you call round at a dairy you can buy milk, cream, cheese, butter and many other products.
The methods of shopping may vary. It may be a self-service shop where the customer goes from counter to counter selecting and putting into a basket what he wishes to buy. Then he takes the basket to the check-out counter, where the prices of the purchases are added up. If it is not a self-service shop, and most small shops are not, the shop-assistant helps the customer in finding what he wants. You pay money to the cashier and he gives you back the change.
