How are you getting on with the irregular verbs in English? "See, saw, seen | read, read, read" etc. They are difficult, aren’t they? Along with the phrasal verbs and the prepositions they make up the "enigmatic trio".
We present you today a Web page that can help deal with them. It’s "Verbbusters", an online resource with a simple operation that will allow you to work with more than 170 irregular verbs in English.
Once on the website you’ll soon be practising the verbs. How? Just follow the following four steps:
- Input your name (there is no need to register) or continue as a guest.
- Choose the language (English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese or Turkish) in which you want the verb to display (the verb will be shown in the infinitive).
- Select the level of difficulty (Beginner, Easy, Medium, Difficult, Advanced, and Special).
- Press the corresponding button to begin the exercise.
We have to admit that the mix between activity, time and getting the highest number of points is pretty addictive and you usually “play” again, so you’ll be learning by heart the past and past participle forms of these irregular verbs.
Verbbusters also offers a complete reference list with 177 irregular verbs in English (to the moment), including its pronunciation, infinitive, past and past participle forms.
Have a look at this explanatory video (in English) that gives you a guided tour through Verbbusters and shows you how to carry out the activity.
