Verb Review

Average: 3.4 (25 votes)

When you start learning verbs you will usually try to remember them in three different forms. The Present Simple, Past Simple and Past Participle. A regular verb will look like this:
Look (present simple)
Looked (past simple)
(past participle)

With both the past simple and the past participle ending in ‘ed’. However, irregular verbs follow no patterns and we just have to learn them. For example:
Break (present simple)
Broke (past simple)
Broken (past participle)

In the following sentences, it is your job to decide which form of the verb is needed. Some of them are regular and some are not. Good luck!
