Leftover from the last lesson. I promised we were also going to talk about how to make negative sentences with “do,” “does” and “did.”

Negative Sentences with Do and Does

You already know you should use “do” and “does” in the present tense (present simple).

You also know that you use “do” with Iyouwe, and they.

And that you use “does” with the other pronouns: heshe, and it.

For negative sentences you also add “not.”

Here are some examples:

I don’t want too drink too much.

You don’t read enough.

Eli doesn’t wash the dishes well.

Malika doesn’t play the piano.

The canary bird doesn’t sing anymore.

We don’t have a car.

Our neighbours don’t take care of their garden.
