Present Simple, -s

You know the usage of the Present Simple Tense.

Let’s focus on the next step, the -s ending.

You should remember that each tense has some ending which we add to verbs. The Present Simple tense takes the -s ending.

BUT only the third person singular (he, she, it) takes  the -s ending.

Do this exercise and check if you understand this rule.
