I am learning English Grammar and I learned that I can express habitual actions using present simple and modal like "would". So, are below sentences correct?

  • He would come to me every day.
  • He comes to me every day.

If both are correct then which one is preferred by linguistics.

Both are correct but each means something different.

He would come to me every day.

Means that he used to come to me every day in the past but doesn't anymore.

He comes to me every day.

Means he still comes to me every day.
