    verb agreement

    Teacher,
    How do I know if a subject is first, second, or third person in order to agree with the verb form?

    Only try to remember third person singular and these are;
    He, She, It ,This, That and any singular name of a person, thing, place or animal etc. Don't bother to cram all the subjects. They will confuse you. We normally have subject agreement problems only with the third person singular so if you remember them all, you'll have no problem at all.
    Hope this helps!
    Regards
