    there's something called simple present

    hi
    There's something called simple present in english grammer, Yes a tense. Of course you all know it .Actually, I know when,where and how I should use it .
    Here is my problem, I forget to use this tense correctly with she/he/it
    for example, she plays a guitar very well.
    It eats meat .
    He keeps on forgetting.
    Especially when I talk , I mean only when I talk, I dont know why I just keep on forgetting adding S to the verb when I pronounce the verb such as plays.
    - Do native english speakers always add an S? they never neglect that .
    - Is there any way guys to help me not to forget that " i wish i can feel it"
    THANKS

    At the beginnings of language, little children forget to add it. Usage, both listening to it and using it, but more the former than the latter, helps to set it as a rule in kids' internal grammars.

    For you, Jesse, I'd recommend using it in as much real life context as you can. Repeat things about your life using your friends and family as examples.

    Ruth likes [___]. John lives at {address}. Mary works for {company}. Mary works as a {__}. Baxter thinks about {__} a lot. Miller sleeps in the back bedroom. Al gets up at {__}.
