Possessive 'S' - Elementary Level

Average: 3.2 (24 votes)

We use the possessive 's' to show that something belongs to someone or something. For example:
"That is Jennifer's dress" means the dress belongs to Jennifer.

Remember: If the person the thing belongs to ends in s we just add an apostrophe and do not add the s. For example:
"That is Carlos' tie."

Present Simple Tense Sentence Construction

Average: 3.3 (12 votes)

The Present Simple is learned when we first begin to study English and is used all the time.

Remember that for I/you/we/they the verb doesn't change but for he/she/it you add an 's' on the end!

For example: (never/Shawn/soccer/play/at school) = Shawn never plays soccer at school.
