Hi there,

That structure is wrong.The basic structure for the present simple (positive sentence) is:

Subject + main verb

If the subject is he/she/it, then you should add "s" or "es" to the verb. If it's not he/she/it you don't change the verb.

  • I speak English.
  • They teach English.
  • He speaks English.
  • She teaches English.
