📝 Entiende el Presente Simple, Presente Continuo y Presente Perfecto

1. Presente Simple: Recuerda que en el Presente Simple utilizamos una forma base del verbo para la tercera persona del singular (he/she/it), y añadimos una «s» al final del verbo. Por ejemplo, «She eats breakfast every day» (Ella desayuna todos los días).

2. Presente Continuo: En el Presente Continuo utilizamos el verbo «to be» seguido del gerundio del verbo principal. Recuerda que el gerundio se forma añadiendo «-ing» al verbo base. Por ejemplo, «I am studying for my exam» (Estoy estudiando para mi examen).

3. Presente Perfecto: En el Presente Perfecto utilizamos el verbo «to have» seguido del participio pasado del verbo principal. Recuerda que algunos verbos irregulares tienen participios pasados diferentes, como «go» que se convierte en «gone». Por ejemplo, «She has finished her homework» (Ella ha terminado sus deberes).

4. Practica utilizando los verbos en contextos reales. Por ejemplo, intenta hacer oraciones sobre tu rutina diaria utilizando el Presente Simple, como «I wake up at 7 o’clock» (Me despierto a las 7 en punto).

5. Utiliza los adverbios de frecuencia para reforzar el uso del Presente Simple. Por ejemplo, puedes decir «I always go to the gym» (Siempre voy al gimnasio) o «He rarely eats fast food» (Él rara vez come comida rápida). Esto te ayudará a entender mejor la frecuencia con la que se realizan las acciones.
