To Be – POSITIVE (short and long forms)

I am a man. My name is Dave.

Dave is tall: Using To be in the positive.

We need: the pronoun (I, you, he) + to be.

Necesitamos solo “el pronombre” (Yo, tu, él – I, you, he) y la forma de “ser o estar” (to be). Recuerda, en inglés siempre vamos a poner el pronombre.

  • I am
  • you are
  • he is/she is/it is
  • we are
  • you are
  • they are

We always put the pronoun:

No: is happy

Yes: He is happy.

But, we don’t repeat the pronoun:

No: The building it is big

Yes: The building is big

So, for example:

  • I am Spanish.
  • You are a man.

Make it Small – Short Form

You can also contract the verb, make it smaller.

  • I’m
  • you’re
  • he’s/she’s/it’s
  • we’re
  • you’re
  • they’re

For example:

  • I’m happy.
  • He’s late.
