Simple Present Tense

We use the simple present tense to talk about regular or habitual actions. It describes facts or things that always happen.

With the pronouns I/you/we/they, regular verbs use the base form in the simple present tense. For example, "I play basketball," or, "We love watching movies."

With the pronouns he/she/it, most regular verbs use the base form with an –s ending, as in, "Devan hates the holidays." When the verb ends with -ch, -sh or –ss, add –es, as in "She watches a lot of TV," or, "He misses his mom."

And remember, you can use "always" in front of a simple present verb to show that something happens all the time.
