Grammar Tutorial: Subject-Verb Agreement

Subject-verb agreement:

If the subject is singular the verb should have “s” at the end. If the subject is plural there is no “s” at the end of the verb, except for the word “I” which always take the plural form of the verb.

Example: Jenna writes a poem.

In this sentence, the subject Jenna is singular, so the verb writes has “s” at the end.

Example: We visit our grandparents every Sunday.

In this sentence, the subject we is plural, so the verb visit has no “s.”

Now, it’s your turn! Choose the correct verb.  » Read more
