What have you observed with the verbs in the first

How about the verbs in the second column? “No -s is added on the verbs”

Nice observation!
Verbs change their form depending on the person or
subject in the sentence. You will come to understand
it as we go on to our discussion on the present tense
of a verb.

D. Discussion

A verb is in the present tense when it uses the s-form


and the base form.
If the subject of the sentence talks about one person
or thing, the subject is singular and it takes a singular
verb. If the subject talks about two or more persons
or things, it is in the plural form and it takes plural form
of the verb.
The verb used when the subject of the
sentence is more than one person, place, or thing
is the base form. When the subject tells about one
person, place, or thing, s-form of the verb is used. (Pupils will listen attentively in the discussion)
These verbs are in the present tense.

E. Generalization “We use the s-form of a verb, when the subject is


singular”
When do we use the s-form of a verb?
“We use the base form of a verb, when the subject
When do we use the base form of the verb? is plural”

F. Application
