We use the present simple for things that happens sometimes or all the time. In this tense we need to add to the verbs the termination “s, es” in third person (he, she, it) I exercise in the mornings. I go to the gym every day. The stores open at 9:00 a.m. And close at 7:00 p.m. He works very hard. He cooks in a restaurant. The Earth goes around the sun. She always reads interesting books. My mother watches horror movies. To form the negative form, we use the auxiliar don’t and doesn’t I don’t go cycling on weekends. They don’t play video games in their house. She doesn’t go fishing every summer.
