    Present Simple

    hi

    I am looking for general staments/facts in the Present Simple such as:

    Ice melts in the sun.

    Cats drink milk.

    The sun rises in the Est.


    Could you give me other (funny) examples of staments that are generally true in the Present simple?


    thank you in advance

    Hi, Mara,

    the water does not boil always at 100° °C. You are mistaken, it depends of the pressure and the level you are located above the sea.

    Have a nice day.
