English: This week we will look at subject-verb agreement. The tense of a verb tells when the action takes place. A verb in the present tense tells what happens now. Add s to most present-tense verbs with singular subjects. Add nothing to present-tense verbs with plural subjects. A verb must agree in number with its subject.
