Welcome to the Scrambled Eggs blog! Here you can find many different resources with which you can learn English.  There are listening exercises, grammar exercises, vocabulary boosters and all kind of interesting articles on a variety of topics! Leaning English should be fun, so we hope you like what you see and hear.

Let’s start with the basics!

The verb ‘to do’ is one of the most common in the English language and mastering it is essential. To do is often used in questions and is changed in different ways.

Regular verb:

I/You/We/They               DO

He/She/It                       DOES


We can use this verb to talk about actions in general:


  • There is nothing we can do, except wait and see.
  • All students should do their homework.


We can also ask questions using DO or DOES:

  • Do you like pasta? I do!
  • Where does she come from?


In the negative, we simply add not after the verb.

  • I do not speak French, even though I come from Canada.
  • He does not like macaroni and cheese.


The contraction would be DON’T or DOESN’T.

  • I don’t eat pickles because I do not like them.
  • She doesn’t enjoy drinking tea.

Maybe you are trying to give someone directions or your friend needs help cooking and you do not know which verb form to use. Choosing the correct verb form in English is very important and can often times lead to confusion. For that reason, we will look at something called IMPERATIVES.

HINT: it is actually very easy!

Imperatives are used to give instructions or orders. An imperative is formed from the infinitive form of the verb (base form). An imperative comes from the second person, which means we use it to talk directly to someone else.

We can use imperatives to:
Give orders
Give directions

Here are some examples of imperatives in the positive:
Be quiet, the students are working.
Let’s go home
Close the door.
Turn right at the next street.

For the negative, we simply add do not (or don’t) before the infinitive.
Do not shout, I can hear you.
Don’t walk on the grass
Do not run near the pool.
Don’t do that

Try these exercises and test your understanding.


Choose the correct answer.


I hope this went well for you. Thank you for working so hard in and out of the classroom. The more you practice the better your English will be. Let us know if you have any questions in the comments below.
