The simple present tense is mainly used to talk about things that are always true or things that happen all the time. When we use this tense form, we usually say when or how often something happens.

To say how often something happens, we use frequency adverbs. The most common frequency adverbs used with the simple present tense are: always, usually, often, sometimes, occasionally, rarely and never.

To say when something happens, we use time prepositions like in, on, at etc.
