When do you Use the Words Do/Does/Did/Done?

Ok here is a Quick Tip to understand the difference between do/does/did/done:

Use 'did' for all things that are in the past.
Example: I did the work.
You did not care.
She did not work very hard.

Use 'do' after words like: I we, you, they
Example: I do like it.
We do want to join the party.
You do that job.
They do like it.

Use 'does' in sentences with words like: she/he/it/:
She does not like this.
He does not work anymore.
It does not print images.

I have created a worksheet to better understand these exercises. You can download and practice it. There is no need to print it. Here is the link. You can also download the exercise sheet from the free downloads page.

What is the difference between 'there', 'they're' and 'their"?

The word "their" is used to mean something that belongs to a group of people. see the examples:

Where is their car?Look at their dirty shoes.Their marks were poor.
The word 'they're' is a shortened version of 'they are'. See the following sentences:

They are going to the park.I think, they are a bunch of idiots.

'There' is used to show a place.

I saw the thief over there.Let us search over there. 'There' is also used to mean something that exists: There are three chairs in the room.There is no place for us to sit.There is no shortcut to success.
