Listen to the audio and choose the sentences Anna talks about

Interviewer | Anna

Interviewer: Do you share a bedroom?
Anna: Yes, I do. I share with my sister.
Interviewer: Do you mind sharing?
Anna: There’s one big problem. We don’t go to the same school. So my sister gets up at half past six and catches a bus at quarter past seven. That wakes me up, but I don’t get up until half past seven. I walk to school and it only takes ten minutes.
Interviewer: Are there any other problems?
Anna: Well, my sister doesn’t tidy the room. She leaves her clothes on the floor. That makes me angry.
Interviewer: Does she do anything else annoying?
Anna: She sometimes watches loud music videos on her laptop. I don’t like that.
Interviewer: Do you do anything annoying?
Anna: Me? No. I’m perfect.


Me?… No, I’m perfect!

Read and complete the grammar rule with the correct options

We use Present Simple to talk about regular events and permanent situations.

Lemons contain a lot of vitamin C. (fact, permanent situation)

I eat one every day. (regular event)

We form Present Simple like this:

Affirmative

I/we/you/they walk.

he/she/it walks.

Negative

I/we/you/they don’t walk (do not walk).

he/she/it doesn’t walk (does not walk).

Questions

Do I/we/you/they walk?

Does he/she/it walk?

Have got means have. Notice how questions are formed. We use it to talk about possessions and appearance.

They‘ve got a big house.

Has the town got a swimming pool?

Does the town have got a swimming pool?

In English the verbs like, want, need, know and understand are always facts, not regular events.

We always use these verbs in Present Simple.

Do you want one?

Are you wanting now?

We often use adverbs of frequency like never, sometimes, often, always, every day/week/year and on Fridays with Present Simple.

We form Present Simple verbs like this:

Most verbs

+ -s

sit → sits

walk → walks

Verbs ending in -ch, -o, -sh, or -ss

+ -es

watch → watches

go → goes

Verbs ending in consonant + -y

+ -ies

study → studies

cry → cries

Arrange the adverbs according to the certainty they express

I hardly ever play outside. ★★☆☆☆☆

I never play outside. ☆☆☆☆☆☆
