    Re: simple present

    Hi gemma
    Present simple tense has four main uses:
    1/ It's used for fact
    eg. The sun rises in the east. [It's the fact that the sun rises in the east.]
    2/ It's used for habit.
    eg. I always gets up at 7 o'clock. [It's my habit to get up at at 7.00.]
    3/ It's used for something that 's true for a long time.
    eg. I live in Cambodia. [I've lived in Cambodia since I was born and it's a relly long time.
    4/ It's used for expressing future activity, esp in timetable.
    eg. The train leaves at 9.00. [It's not 9 o'clock right now.]
