** If the subject is third person singular number and present indefinite tense
 use s/es with the verb. Read-reads, teach-teaches, do- does.


** After preposition use –“ing” with the verb. By doing, at going, for coming, from getting.

** After –to preposition do not change the present form of verb. To do / to go.


** do not use more than one verb simultaneously.
Except the first verb all the other verbs will get an –ing with them. We started going there.


** After be verb the main verb should get an ing or past participle form.
I am going to daffodil. I am gone.
