Basic English Grammar – Do, Does, Did, Don’t, Doesn’t, Didn’t


hi there my name is Ronnie and today I’m
going to teach a lesson by special request from engvid.com someone wrote in
or typed in and wanted a lesson on the very basic verb of do now we really use this verb a lot in
English it’s called an auxiliary verb sometimes we need to put it in where you
think it doesn’t go I’m just going to teach you the basic
positive and negative of this verb so the reason why this is so confusing
is we have to change it depending on the subject, so if you’re
talking about yourself you’re going to say i do we usually say this in a
marriage do you I do whoo hoo if we have the
word you and I both use do if we have he or
she we must use does so I do you do he or she does these are the only ones
that change if we want to talk about a group of people, we can see they. They do,
and if you’re talking about yourself and another person we’re going to say we do so you only
really have to be worried about when we he or she don’t worry about it he or she does all of the other subjects
do now the negative is also different with do and does when we use the
negative with I, you, they, and we. We say don’t don’t is actually a contraction of do
not but in normal everyday speaking English it’s very very same “do not” we usually
say don’t so if we use I you they and we going to say don’t I don’t
have a cat you don’t like me we don’t go there if it’s the word does
in the negative it’s going to change too doesn’t so for example he doesn’t like cats she doesn’t like him so we never change the subject in the
negative it’s always the same he or she does he
or she doesn’t when we don’t we use I you they and we. The last thing about this
lovely verb is the past the past thank goodness will stay the same ok does not change so we can use I he/she they and we did the
negative of this is it peace are present this is pass so these do not change this is easier I
he she they we did I didn’t like him he didn’t like the cat all right i hope that clears it up for
you and please if you have any suggestions anything you would like to be taught please go to engvid.com and write a
comment and we’ll be happy to teach you bye-bye
