improve my speaking and grammar
when i speak third person singular i always don't use 's' form of the verb. eg. he come, he go instead of goesw and comes. i know it is wrong. could some one give me some exercises to get rid of this wrong way of speaking and improve my speaking.
Re: improve my speaking and grammar
reenamma, if you 'know' it is wrong but you keep doing it, it may be time to play a 'trick' on your thought process! To do something that zaps your memory to say the correct word. It doesn't seem like rote memorization is helping you.

* He/she/it comes...he/she/it goes. He comes. He goes. She comes. She goes. It comes. It goes.
Try it! If it still doesn't help, come back and we'll try something else!
