Learning English Grammar : Simple Present Tense

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Hi, how do you do everyone? I really hope you are in the most pink-est health. *Is pink-est even a word?

For this entry, we are going to learn about Simple Present Tense. Before we go any further, let see this example,

Siti : Do ducks swim?
Noor : Yes, ducks swim.

They are talking of a fact about ducks. What tense is used for such sentences?
Yes, Simple Present Tense is used in the sentences. We use the Simple Present Tense to show truths or facts.

This tense actually refers back to the schedule that I have made in the past entry.

Simple Present Tense also shows regularly and habitually.

For examples:

He drinks coffee every morning.
They often play football.

He-drinks is the form of Simple Present tense but then when added -every, its still in the form of Simple Present Tense but it show regularity or event that they do every time given.

Words like 'every day', 'always', 'often', 'sometimes', 'usually', etc. are often used in such sentences.

You can search on the internet more about Simple Present Tense, if you think that my explanation here is not sufficient.

That is all for now.

Assalamualaikum WBT
