and today I'm going to do a lessonIt's a very, very basic, very simple, very easy lessonfor everyone to enjoyThis is by request by the way, So thank youAnd today we're going to learn the verb "to have".Now, the difficult thing about this verb is, is has to change when we use he and she.Thank godness..the rest of them don't change when we use different pronouns.
I will conjugate the verb for you and you can just learn how to do this.We say "I have""He" and "she"These are the ones that are important, we have to use "has".Because these are singular people."I", "he", " she." Then we have"They" and the last one is "we".Both "they" and "we" are two people; at least two people.We can say, "they have"and "we have"ok? so the very..
difficult and most important ones to remember hereare if it's a singular person, "he" or "she", we need to change the verb to "has".Good!The next thing is the negative form of these verbs.In the negative, we have to use the word in English "don't".So, we're going to say:"I don't have"For example, "I don't have a cat""I don't have a dog""They", we can use the same word, "don't have".
So we can say: "they don't have any hamburgers"And again we because we use have we can say "We don't have".For this one unfortunately I can't say "He don't has".That would be too easy for you guys. We actually have to change this wordAnd we actually have to - they're coming for me "oh no"! HelpOkayI escapedHe and she with has...
We have to change this verb to doesn'tSo I can sayhedoesn'thaveand shedoesn'thavesowhen we use the negative form, we use the verb have for all of them. The one that changes is don't, doesn't, and don't.This is the very - oh no they're coming for me again-This is. Nope they're gone. Nope they're here."He doesn't have""She doesn't have""I don't have" "They don't have" "We don't have"I hope that makes it easier for youWhen you're dealing with have and hasThe other part of this word is the pastDoes anyone know the past of have?It ishad...
SoThis is very easy and you're lucky for this oneWhen we use "had," we don't have to change it with the different pronounsSo we can say I had, he and she had, they had, and we hadthey had, and we hadThey had a fireThat's why the sirens are thereBasic use of verbs: to have, to hadWhen we change the past of had into the negative is where it becomes a little difficultBack in old old school englishand I think a lot of the times in Britain and in British englishYou can sayIhadnotShe had notThey had not. We had not.But this is very unnatural for usus being people from Canada and people from AmericaAnd modern day englishWe just don't use "I had not." It's very Shakespearean. If you're into Shakespeare you'd know thisI had to not eat in that...which is kinda weird.
SoWhen we use hadWe have to look at this verb againWho knows what the negative and the past really of doesn't is?The answer is didn't.So for this one we're going to say Ididn'tor did nothaveFor all of these, we do not need to change it.He and shedidn't haveand they and wealsowe usedidn'tSo the more you study English the more you are going to learn there are things that are very difficult and hard and rememberBut! There's going to be some tricks I can teach you to help you remember thoseI hope that helped youand everyone else I'll see you again soon!!!
