THERE IS/ THERE ARE

If we want to say that something exists or doesn't exist somewhere or at some time, we often use 'there + be'. It's often used to talk about something for the first time in a conversation.

  • There is a cup on the table.
  • There is a restaurant next to the station.
  • There isn't any money in the house.
  • There aren't any banks in this street.
  • Is there a supermarket near here?
  • Are there any potatoes in the cupboard?

In theory, we use 'there is + singular' and 'there are + plural'.

  • There is a cafe in my village.
  • There are two cafes in my village.

The verb to be

The verb to be is the most important verb in the English language. It is difficult to use because it is an irregular verb in almost all of its forms.  In the simple present tense, to be is conjugated as follows:

Affirmative forms of the verb to be

Subject Pronouns Full Form Contracted Form
I am 'm
you are 're
he/she/it is 's
we are 're
you are 're
they are 're

Interrogative forms of the verb to be:

Am I?
Are you?
Is he/she/it?
Are we?
Are you?
Are they?

Negative Forms of the verb to be:

Subject Pronouns Full Form Contracted Form
I am not 'm not
you are not aren't
he/she/it is not isn't
we are not aren't
you are not aren't
they are not aren't

Examples:

  • Is Brad Pitt French?
  • No, he isn't. He's American.
  • What about Angelina Joli? Is she American, too?
  • Yes, she is. She is American.
  • Are brad Pitt and Angelina Joli French?
  • No, They aren't. They are American.

Use of the simple present of to be

The principal use of the simple present is to refer to an action or event that takes place habitually, but with the verb "to be" the simple present tense also refers to a present or general state, whether temporary, permanent or habitual.

  • am happy.
  • She is helpful.

The verb to be in the simple present can be also used to refer to something that is true at the present moment.

  • She is 20 years old.
  • He is a student.

Remember:

  • I, you, he, she, it, you, they are subject pronouns (also called personal pronouns, a term used to include both subject and object pronouns.)
  • am, are, is are forms of the verb to be in the simple present.
  • 'm, 're, 's are short (contracted) forms of  am, are, is
  • 'm not, aren't, isn't are short (contracted forms) of am not, are not, is not.

- Can is a modal verb. 

- Can is used to express ability or to say that something is possible.

- Can is the same for all subjects. We don't add an 'S' in the third person (like other verbs)

The verb that comes after Can is in the infinitive without to:

  • AFFIRMATIVE
  • I can speak Spanish. (= it is possible for me to speak Spanish = I have the ability to speak Spanish)
  • He can swim well.
  • We can see our neighbour in the garden.
  • They can play the guitar.

 

  • NEGATIVE
  • To form the negative we add "not" after can to form one word: cannot.
  • We can also contract the negative to form can't. (can't = cannot)

  • cannot play the piano. We can't go to the cinema tonight.
  • She cannot speak French very well. He can't drive a car.

 

  • QUESTIONS

To from the question we change the position of the subject and the auxiliary verb.

The main verb is still in the infinitive without to.

  • Where can I buy an ice-cream?
  • Can go to the party, please?
  • Can you speak Japanese?
  • What can we do on Saturday?
  • Remember that you can use short answers:

  • Can I sit here please? Yes, you can.
  • Can you speak Chinese? No, I can't.
