GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Present Simple?
The simple present or present simple is one of the present tenses used in modern English, the others being Present continuous (English) and the emphatic present. The simple present is mainly used to express habitual actions, such as he walks to school. The simple present is often employed in newspaper headlines, conditional sentences, when a planned event is described along with a time in the future, in suggestions beginning with Why don't you...?, and with certain verbs. It can also be used when making a citation. When asking a question, the simple present often uses the emphatic present, which employs the auxiliary to do. The exception is when the question word is the subject of the sentence.
