Exercícios e texto com o verbo to be no presente - The present simple of be


Are you my son? 

The Prince and the Pauper (1881) is a book by Mark Twain. The book is about two boys, Tom and Edward. They are 15 years old but their lives are very different. Tom is a poor boy but Edward is a prince. They change places by mistake so Edward is a poor boy and Tom is a prince. The old King, Henry VIII, is not well but he is Edward's father and he wants to know the truth... 

The King visits the prince (or is he the poor boy?). 
King: I don't understand! Are you my son? 
Tom: No, I'm not a prince, I'm poor. 
King: Are you sure? Your clothes are not very old! 
Tom: They're not my clothes. They're Edward's clothes. He's poor now. 
King: Oh no! This is terrible! Is it true? 
Tom: Yes, it is. I'm really sorry, King Henry. 
You aren't my father, you're my King.
