When do we use TO BE in the present tense

 

 

This week we are talking about the present tense, which is the most used tense in the English language (tense means when something happens, ex. now or tomorrow). In spoken English, you will need the Present Simple tense 60% of the time.
 
 
The most important verb to learn is TO BE and in today’s lesson I will show you some of the most important ways in which TO BE is used.
 
 
TO BE

 

  • To describe states and facts which are true in the present.
  • Use for things which are generally true: your name, nationality, your location, your job, your marital status, your family’s names and occupations, your interests.
 
 
Positive: Is/are/am —Negative: Isn’t/aren’t/ am not — Questions: Are you? Is he/she/ it/ am I?

 

  • I: I am a teacher. I’m not a student.
  • You: You aren’t an instructor. You are an assistant.
  • He: Ronaldo is a footballer. Is he famous? Yes, he is.
  • She: Is Shakira Brazilian? No, she isn’t. She is a famous Colombian singer.
  • It: The weather in England isn’t very cold in winter. It is usually mild.
  • It: Oxygen is a chemical element. A bee is an insect.
  • We: We are Swiss. We aren’t German. Are we late?
  • You (plural): Are you two married? No we aren’t. We are only friends.
  • They: Are they your friends? No, they aren’t. They are our neighbors.
 
 
To practice TO BE talk about yourself, your family, your house, your job etc.
 
 
    1. My name is …, I’m from … (country), I’m … (nationality), I’m a … (job), I’m … years old, … I’m … (marital status), etc. My brother is … (age), My parents are … (occupation)
    2. Point to objects around you and say: This is a table (a chair/ an apple/ a book); these are pictures (cups, dishes, trees, etc.)
    3. My name is Linda. I’m from Mexico. I’m Mexican. I’m a student. I’m 20 years old. I’m single. My brother is 16. My parents are doctors.
    4. Ask your friends these common questions with TO be in the present:
    5. Where are you from? What nationality are you? How old are you? What is your job? Are you married/single/divorced? What is your telephone number? What is your address? What is your favorite color/ day of the week? What are your interests/ hobbies?
