  • Hi guys! I'm your teacher Luke and today I have a question for you... why do we

  • sometimes put an extra do in positive sentences? Like this

  • "I do like kimchi" or "I do want to go away this weekend". Usually "do" as an auxiliary

  • verb is only used in questions and negatives.

  • "Do you like waking up early in the morning?" "No, I don't like waking up early"

  • In a positive sentence, we would answer this question like this "Yes, I like

  • waking up early" So then why do we sometimes use an extra "do" in positive

  • sentences?

  • "Yes, I do like waking up early"

  • well there are two reasons for you to use an

  • extra do. One reason we use an extra do in a positive sentence is for emphasis.

  • Tell me which sounds stronger to you... I like waking up early. I do like waking up

  • early.?

  • Right it's the second one. That extra do provides quite a lot more

  • emphasis to your sentence. do or does can be used in the present simple

  • and did can be used in the past simple. They go before the main verb and they get the

  • main stress in the sentence. Listen to these "I do love eating kimchi! It's

  • delicious" "he does look tired ,I hope he's okay." "they did have a great time in Spain"

  • Another reason we use an extra do is to show contrast between two ideas. For

  • example, "even though studying Chinese is difficult, I do try my best." "I don't eat

  • much sweet food, but I do enjoy eating ice cream after my dinner." "My boss said

  • my email was late but I did send it on time." To sum up we use an extra do in

  • positive sentences for two reasons. The first reason is for extra emphasis and

  • the second is to show contrast. But remember put the stress on the do when

  • you are speaking. "I do enjoy making English grammar videos for you."

  • Okay that's it for me today I hope this was helpful and I'll see you next

  • time! Bye :)
