If you asked to them they will give only one answer and common answer i have stuff in Subjects but i am unable to expose my feelings in English language. Is it true..? Yes.

My dear friends,

I observed these things from many of my friends. For this reason i would like to share what i learned from Internet, Seniors and Others some of the basics in English. Shall i go…..?

Today i would like to discuss about one of the basic helping verb called –   “AM “.

When should i use am..?, why should i use Am..? Where should i use Am..?
In simple way i am going to give answers for your doubts. Are you ready…? okay.

  • “Am” is one of the basic helping verb in English language.
  • This helping verb use must use with subject called “I”. Don’t use Am with other subjects.                                                 I    Am

When should i use “Am” in Sentence….?

1. When you are talking about identity of person, You can use ”Am”.

For Example: I am a Teacher,
I am a Doctor,
I am a Student.
In above all sentences we are using Am with subject I. And we are talking about present identity of me (I), with noun we are telling about Identity.

2. When you are talking about temporary action done by person called “I”, Here temporary means short time.
For Example: I am writing,
I am running,
I am eating.

3. When action is continuous in regular basis, You can use “Am”. 
For Example:I am taking treatment,
I am speaking English.
Here verb is in ‘ing’ form.

4. If you describes the person(Am with Adjective),  you can use Am.
For Example: I am Good,
I am tall,
I am happy.

5.  Am with Preposition.
Preposition will help you in talking about time, place etc.,
For Example: I am at Office.
I am in India.

6. Am with Adverb

I am there.

7. Am with past participle/(ed) form
Which actions are not done by me(I), But somebody else.
For Example: I am Motivated by my Brother( Action are done to me)

Here verb in past participle form. 5 Different form of verbs we discussed already.

How to make more sentences with “Am”…?

Till we learned positive sentence. This is not enough for us. We need to learn more sentences with “Am”  As a human every time we are not ready to give to answers to others. We need to questioning our selves. Okay buy how….?
We take one sentence
I am happy.  (Positive )
Am i Happy…?( Interrogative)
In this way you can make more sentences.

For Example:Am i a teacher?
Am i speaking?
Am i good?
Am i at Office?
Am i here?
Am i motivated by my brother?

Suppose some one asked to you Are you a doctor? But you are not a doctor, you are a teacher. How to give reply to that person….? In Simple way.

We take one sentence
I am a Doctor.
I am not a doctor. I am a teacher.
Just after “Am” add not, That is nothing but negative sentences.

For Example: I am not Speaking.
I am not a teacher.
I am not at Office.
I am not here.
I am not motivated by my brother.

Then coming to Negative interrogative, Negative Questioning our selves.

For Example: Am i not good?
Am i not a doctor?
Am i not office?
Am i not here?
Am i not motivated by my brother.

Dear friends i think you will get some idea in Using ‘Am’ in sentences. Learning and understanding these things are very simple we need to practice more and more then you will get command.

If you make a one sentence easily you will get 4 sentences.
For Example:
I am a doctor.
Am i a doctor?
I am not a doctor.
Am i not a Doctor?

Thanks for your attention, ALL THE BEST.
