Forms of Verbs

It is very difficult to remember all forms of the verb, isn’t it?
I often get a question from students that how can they remember all forms of the verb.

TIPS TO LEARN FORMS OF VERBS

I understand it is very difficult to remember 1000s of forms. There is an easy way.
Good news is that we don’t need to learn all forms of verbs.

  1. You just need to learn Irregular verbs
  2. Regular verbs are followed by adding “ed” in 2nd and 3rd forms.
  3. Maximum verbs are regular and there is a limited number of irregular verbs so rather than learning 1000 or 5000 verbs it is better you learn 206 irregular verbs mentioned below.

Verbs are classified as regular or irregular.
Majorly there are 3 forms of verbs.
1st form is the infinitive verb.
2nd form is used only in simple past.
3rd form is called past participle which is used in the all-perfect tenses and passive voice.

REGULAR VERBS

All regular verbs end by adding-ed in 2nd and 3rd forms.
Let’s see some examples
