How can I remember different verbs?!

Wouldn’t it be nice to learn a language that has only one form of the verb? Well, unfortunately, English is not that language!

Learning each verb and its different forms can be tricky but have no fear.

I’m here with a simple but effective method that you can use to remember them when needed- if you don’t mind looking a bit silly!

Irregular Verbs

English verbs can be regular or irregular. We’ll get on to the spelling of regular verbs in a future blog post, but first, let’s look at irregular verbs.

This is where things get a little more complicated, because they don’t follow a simple pattern.

Example: sing = sang = sung, write = wrote = written

Try this method to help you to remember different English verbs…

When there are so many irregular verbs and no pattern to help us remember them, how can we learn them? It’s easier than you think!

Hands on head = Present simple

Example: Throw

Hands on your head

 Hands on hips = Past simple

Example: Threw

Hands on your hips

Hands on knees = Past particple

Example: Thrown

Hands on your knees

Each time you learn a new verb, repeat these movements as you say each form:

Touch your head for the present simple;

Your hips for the past simple;

And finally, put your hands to your knees for the past participle.

Then repeat!

Physical movements are proven to aid recall, so although you might feel a bit silly, you can be sure to remember them in no time!
