    Default He always like to or he always likes to?

    As I think that always is an adverb but not a modal verb, verbs following it should change its form to make the sentence grammatically correct.
    Therefore, I think "he always likes to" is correct.
    can you give me some comments, thank you.

    "He likes" = third person singular, that's why it takes an "s".
