Presen Simple : Affirmative and Negative


If the subject is plural (e.g. we, they, boys, teachers, cats, pens) or 1st
and 2nd person singular (I and you), then we use the regular verb
(e.g. go, come, eat).
If the subject is the third person singular (e.g. he, she, it, boy, teacher,
cat, pen), then we need to use the s/es (e.g. goes, comes, eats) verb.

Declarative sentence structure
Subject + V.1 (s, es)+.............


Here are some adverbs of frequency or frequency of action:

1. Adverbs in the positive form
as sometimes, often, usually, always

2. Adverbs in the negative form
such as rarely, hardly, seldom, never
Rejected image will not add not

Adding Adverb of Frequency
(adverb of the frequency or frequency of action)
are as follows

1. The placement of Adverbs of Frequency in sentences with
Verb to be places the frequency after it, for example:
- She is always on time.
- He is usually relaxes after game.
- I am never gets up late. -

2. Placement of Adverbs of Frequency In sentences with
main verbs, frequency is placed before the main verb, for
- They usually go to school early.
- He usually washes his car at the weekends - We often
watch TV with our family.



There are two main structures:
1. Sentences that use the verb to be as the main verb

If a sentence has the verb to be (is, am, are) as the main verb, we can
simply use not after the verb to be. We can abbreviate is not as isn't and
abbreviate are not as aren't, but For am not, we don't use thumbnails.


Subject + verb to be + not + (object/complement)

He isn’t an engineer.
(The descriptive sentence is He is an engineer.)

They aren’t students.
(The descriptive sentence is They arestudents.)

2. Sentences that do not use the verb to be as the main verb.

If the sentence has a main verb other than verb to be, we use do/does + not before the
main verb. We can abbreviate do not as don't and abbreviate does not as doesn't.


Subject + do/does + not + verb 1 + (object/complement)

(In negative sentences that use do/does, we use does with the third person
singular subject, and do with other types of subjects. And we will use the main
verb. It is a regular verb that does not always add s/es.)

He doesn’t love me.
(The telling sentence is He loves me.)

Her friends don’t like me.
(The declarative sentence is Her friends like me.)

Plural countable nouns may be preceded by
articles or not, for example

I like to feed the birds. ( specific, must have articles )
Cats are interesting pets. ( Not specific, does not need an article)
I want those books on the table. ( those are determiners )

whole and thinks that it cannot be divided into parts. Including the idea

iron,equipment,clothing,garbage, junk

Abstract : such as anger, courage, satisfaction,happiness,knowledge

If it's greater than 1, you'll need to add -s or -es.
to make it in the plural form, for example:

5 glasses of milk

2 bowls of soup


has a singular form and when addressed in general or not mentioned before
Do not lead with articles such as
I have bread and butter for breakfast every morning.
We cannot live without air and water.
Information is often valuable.
Sunlight and water are usually required for plants to grow.
My favorite breakfast is cereal with fruit, milk, orange juice, and toast.
Nouns can be both Countable and Uncountable. Some nouns can be both
countable and uncountable. Depending on the use, for example


For example :
I like duck. ( uncountable noun )
I like ducks. (like an animal called duck ) ( countable noun )

Article It is a word used to describe the specific or inconsistent of a noun.
There are 3 characters, a, an, the.
A definite article, the definite article, is used with something that has been
identified as a person or thing.
The woman with pink shoes is very pretty.
(The word woman here clearly indicates someone who wears pink shoes, so
we use the.)

Article (indefinite article) Well, a and an are used
when we talk about something in general. It does
not specify exactly who or what it is.
A woman can be anything she wants to be.
(The word woman here doesn't specify who it is, so
we use a.)


Principle of use article

Principles of using a and an
A and an are used when the noun meets all of these conditions.

is an indefinite noun
is a singular noun (There are one unit)
as a countable noun

Difference between a and an
We use a when the suffix does not begin with or is pronounced as if it
starts with a, e, i, o, u, otherwise we have to use an instead.

For example :
We'll use a banana (banana starts with b, not a, e, i, o, u).
but use an apple (apple starts with a)
But for some words, such as hour, we use an hour.
Because it's a special word that sounds like it starts with a, e, i, o, u.

If an adjective is added to a noun
For example : red apple, which means red apple.
When choosing a or an, we will stick with the word that
follows a/an.
Here we will use a red apple because the word red
doesn't start with a, e, i, o, u.


|| Is an indefinite noun

Nouns that can use a and an must be indefinite. is to refer to anything in
general It doesn't specify exactly which one.
for example :

He is a teacher.
(The word teacher here refers to the general occupation of a teacher.
It was not stated exactly who the teacher was.)

He is an engineer.
(The term engineer here refers to the profession of engineer in general.
Did not specify exactly who the engineer was.)

|| Is a singular noun
The words a and an, in addition to denoting inconsistency, It also
serves to tell the quantity of nouns as well. It means "one unit".
For Example :

A cat
A person
An apple

I have a pen.
I bought an orange.

We cannot use a and an with plural nouns, for example we would
not use a carrots.


|| As a countable noun

We can only use a and an directly with countable
nouns. If a noun is uncountable We need to use
specific units to direct them by using the structure
“a/an + unique units + of + uncountable nouns.”
For example:

A glass of water
A bag of flour
An inch of hair

The principle of use
• is a specific noun.
• is a singular noun. (a number of units) or plural
(Amount from 2 units or more)
• Is it a countable or uncountable noun.

|| Is a specific noun

We use the with definite nouns.
Which is what we identify exactly which one.

The sun rises in the east.
(Both the sun and the east are one and the same.
We already know what that means.)

Where did you park the car?
(The word car here, both the speaker and the listener know what car it means.)


|| is a singular or plural noun
We can use the with singular or plural nouns.
The word the is not a quantifier.

|| Is it a countable or uncountable noun.
We can use the with both countable and uncountable nouns.

( Exception )
We often use the with some nouns. Even if it's not a specific noun.

For example:
Things that are part of everyday life, inventions, musical
For example :
I use the internet every day.
(Use the even when referring to the Internet in general.)

The computer has changed the world in many different ways.
(Use the even when referring to computers in general.)

The violin is probably the world’s most popular instrument.
(Use the even when referring to the violin in general.)



Determiners are nouns. serves to provide additional
information about nouns, such as quantity, ownership
Examples of determiners are a, an, the, this, that, some,
any, much, many, my, your, his, her, numbers (one, two,
three, …).
As you can see, a, an, the are also considered
determiners. We don't use a, an, the when other
determiners are used, for example:
This dog is cute.
(We will not use The this dog is cute.)
My umbrella is black.
(We will not use My the umbrella is black.)

sense. with a simple sentence structure In a greater comparison, it is

S + V. to be + Comparative adj. + than + O

the comparative adjective:

S + V. to be + less + Comparative adj. + than + O

For example : ( The cow is less bigger than the elephant )

Principle of use

How to turn Adj into Comparative Adjectivee

In bringing an adjective (adj.) to change it into a comparative adj, there are 3
types of transition principles:

1. adj. + -er
It is most often used with adjectives that are 1-2 syllables in length.
for example bigger, smaller , calmer etc.

In this way, if an adjective ends in y, then omit the y and add -er.
for example dirty => dirtier , easy => easier

2. more + adj.
This method is often used with adjectives that are 3 or more syllables in length.
for example more beautiful , more generous , more difficult เป็ นต้น

But it is also sometimes used with adjectives that are less than three syllables.
for example more honest , more handsome etc.


3. change special pattern
Some adjectives are immutable like the two above, but are completely
immutable. which requires a memorization method

for example good => better , far => farther etc.


It is a comparison of three or more objects, or all of the same category.
Whet her that is good or the most there is a simple sentence structure :
S + V. to be + the + Superlative adj.
— I’m the richest person in this town.
And for the least or worst comparison, add least to the superlative adjective like this:
S + V. to be + the + least + Superlative adj.
— Reading is the least interesting hobby for me.

Principle of use

adjective (adj.) to a superlative adj.

1. the + adj. + -est

In this way, if an adjective ends in y, then omit the y and add -est.

For example pretty => the prettiest , lazy => the laziest etc.


2. the + most + adj.
This method is often used with adjectives that are 3 or more syllables,
For example: the most expensive , the most important etc.
But sometimes it is also used with adjectives that are less than 3 syllables in
For example : the most honest , the most handsome etc.
3. change special pattern
Some adjectives are immutable like the two above, but are completely
immutable. which requires a memorization method by which word changes the
special form in the comparative comparative It will also change the special
format in the ultimate comparison.
For example : good => the best , bad => the worst etc.

Example :
She is as tall as her mother.
I’m as beautiful as my mother.
