Does, is or has

Average: 3.5 (71 votes)

The verbs do, be and have are often confused by beginning learners of English. This exercise explores some of the ways that we can use these verbs for the 3rd Person Singular. For example:

"He is a teacher, he has a friendly smile."

In this example, we used the be verb to describe his state as a teacher, and the have verb to describe his possessing a friendly smile.
