Reading Time: 4 minutes

Some of my students have been struggling with learning irregular verbs for a while now. And as you already imagined I wanted to make their life easier.

So, I right away came up with ways on how to make their learning experience trouble-free.

I simply cannot have negative feelings towards anything English related in my classroom.

Before I go into detail, let’s see what a verb is…

Meaning of the word "verb"

A verb in English can be regular or irregular. All verbs have five forms, the infinitive, simple present, past simple, past participle, and present participle.

The difference between both is the formation of the past simple and past participle. According to the grammar rules, we know that in the past simple we add “ed” as a suffix at the end of the regular verb.

The irregular verbs have their unique formation that you have to learn by heart if you want to use them correctly. Please, don’t stress out.

I know how sensitive the subject of learning all those verbs by heart can get but hey 70% of the verbs used daily in the English language are irregular. According to pasttences.com, there are 638 irregular verbs in total.

But do not panic only about 200 are used more frequently and if you exclude the prefix forms such as “stand” and “understand “then you are left with about 100  – 120. I think this number is more manageable, wouldn’t you agree?
