    Welcome to the forum.

    We don't give tutorials on such a wide subject, but click here and ask us later if you have any specific questions.

    I found that page for you by googling your thread title.

    "To be" is usually the first verb learners learn. The fact that you are able to construct this question suggests that you have learnt some of the basics already. What do you already know about "to be". For example, do you know what form of the verb should go in the space in the following sentences?

    I _____ a man.
    He _____ a doctor.
    We ______ students.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
