現在形を使ってみよう

The Present Tense
現在形を使って講師と会話してみましょう。
現在形は一般動詞では主語によってあまり形が変わるものではありませんが、「三単現」と呼ばれる形だけは気をつけましょう。 「三人称 (I, you以外)で単数、現在」を表す場合です。 回答例のように主語はHeで三人称(I, You以外)、単数(一人ですね)、現在の話をしています。 また、haveは三単現の場合havesではなくhasですので気を付けましょう。 現在形は状態やくり返し行われる動作を指します。「今」していることを表すには現在進行形を使いましょう。 【回答例】 He plays soccer with his friends. 彼は友達とサッカーして遊ぶ

#good

He cleans his teeth with an electric toothbrush and dental floss every morning and night.

#or

He cleans his teeth with dental floss and an electric toothbrush every morning and night.

Very good! That was a very nice sentence. Are you able to give me some more sentence where you use the present tense?
#miss

I love ice cream containing rum-soaked raisins after supper. Or, My grandson visits me on Mondays.

#correct

I love ice-cream containing rum-soaked raisins after supper. Or, my grandson visits me on Mondays.

Ooh that is nice of him. So does this means he doesn't live far away from you? Ice cream is great I love it too, although I haven't had it for a long time.
#miss

That sentence is my dream. Actually, my grandsons live three hundred fifty kilometers far away from my town. I wish we could meet each other more frequently. Oh, you also love ice cream, don't you? We have the taste in common. If you haven't had it for a long time, what you enjoy for dessert?

That sentence is my dream. Actually, my grandsons live three-hundred-and-fifty kilometers away from my town. I wish we could meet each other more frequently. Oh, you also love ice-cream, don't you? We have the taste in common. If you haven't had it for a long time, what do you enjoy for dessert?

Well to be honest I haven't had desserts for a long time. I'm usually so full after dinner that I don't eat desserts. How many grandchildren do you have?
#miss

I see. My family also don't always have dessert after supper. My husband and I have just had the second grandson on April 1. He is my daughter's second son. My son is still single. So, I have two grandchildren.

Cool! So, you have two grandchildren. How old are they and what do you usually do when they come to visit you? How often do they come to your place? Do you prepare any specific food or do you watch anything on TV? I know that many people have special habits when their family visits them. How about you?
#miss

One is four years old and the other is just one month. They come to our house twice a year. I sometimes bake cookies with the elder boy. And he likes dancing so his favorite TV programs are popular music shows. They live in the big city and their lifestyle is very artificial. So, I try to show them real nature and let them contact with it.
