Exercise Subject Substitutes (Present Simple)

We use a large range of Subjects when we communicate.                                We can say, ‘My teacher’s husband works in Manchester.’                                My teacher’s husband is a substitute for He …                                                              He works.

This exercise shows which basic Subject (I, you, he, she, it, we or they) is the option for a more ‘complicated’ Subject. We need to understand this, in order to choose the correct part of the Verb to go with the Subject.

We use the Present Simple when we are talking about:

  • what we do regularly / all the time ( I play football every week / I live in England)
  • with descriptions / facts (My friend is very tall / London is the capital city of England.)
  • with adverbs that show how often we do something (sometimes, often, never, usually, regularly, always, frequently, generally, rarely, seldom, etc)
