He, She, It + S

When using the third person singular always add –s to the verb.

A man is running away from a hippo so he obviously is not thinking about the third person singular at this moment.

My hippo runs very fast.

• It runs very fast.
• He works in an office.
(He + work + s)
• Maria walks to work.
• Dogs run very fast.
(Dogs = they so no –s after the verb)

With questions and negatives don’t add –s.
• He doesn’t like football.
(Negative)
• He likes football.
(Positive)
• Does he like football?
(Question)
