Simple present tense is one of several forms of present tense in English. This tense is used to describe habits, unchanging situations, general truths, and fixed schedules. The simple present tense is very easy to form. Just use the basic words of the verb: (I take, you take, we take, they take). The third person singular form uses -s at the end of the base word. (he takes, she takes)

The formula for Simple Present Tense is one of the formulas that is easiest to remember because it is still at a simple stage and is widely used every day. The formula for Simple Present Tense is Subject + Verb 1 (s/es) for verbal sentences and Subject + to be (are, am, is) + nominal (adjective/noun) for nominal sentences. What must be paid attention to is that if the actor or subject is He/She/It, then s/es must be added after the verb.
