The present tense is the base form of the verb: I work in London.
But the third person (she/he/it) adds an -s: She works in London.
We use the present tense to talk about:
- something that is true in the present:
DJ Hardwell is in Miami.
He is from Netherlands.
I‘m a DJ.
- something that happens again and again in the present:
He plays music every day.
We use words like sometimes, often. always, and never (adverbs of frequency) with the present tense:
I sometimes go to the cinema.
She never plays football.
- something that is always true:
The adult human body contains 206 bones.
Light travels at almost 300,000 kilometers per second.
- something that is fixed in the future.
The school term starts next week.
The train leaves at 1945 this evening.
