A big challenge for people learning English is remembering the many common irregular verbs. Native speakers probably don’t think about how verb tenses are made. Irregular verbs can be confusing! Swim, Swam, Swum – Read, Read, Read – Go, Went, Gone.
The purpose of this post is to share an A4 sized chart I made of 147 irregular verbs, Click the link to download the PDF: Irregular Verb list PDF file
Did you know the most common irregular verbs are be, do, have, go, get, say, see, think, make, take, come and know?
Grammar Refresher: Regular verbs become past tense (and past participle) by adding “ed” to the infinite form (the base verb) – I cooked pizza for dinner. There are some exceptions for spelling: If a verb ends in -e, you add –d. If a verb ends in a vowel and a consonant, the consonant is usually doubled before -ed.
