If you're still scared of irregular verbs in the English language, it's time to memorize them once and for all. Yes, it's not easy to do, as there are quite a few of them. However, the authors of the Booyya courses are ready to share with you the secrets of memorization that will help you with this difficult task. 

Н2 What are the peculiarities of irregular verbs in the English language?

Most English verbs belong to the category of regular verbs, as you only need to add the ending -ed to the stem to form the past tense. However, there are words that don’t follow this rule, which is why they are called irregular. The familiar word “to be” is also such a verb, and in the past tense it changes to "was" or "were" depending on the person. And if you need to use it as a past participle, then use "been".

So where did these strange and completely illogical forms come from? They come from the ancient English language and have retained their form despite the active course of history, the development of the language, and attempts to adapt them to the general rule of past tense formation. Probably, ancient people had their own logic, from which irregular verbs in the English language were born, and we can only accept it.

Н3 With those verbs, it's not all bad

English has several hundred verbs whose past tense forms are formed without any logic. However, when you start learning all these words by heart, you will sometimes come across some exceptions and clues. See the table below for some examples of formation:

The general rule for the formation of the past tense

Examples

Words containing -take change in the same way as the word "take" itself

take – took – taken

mistake – mistook – mistaken 

undertake – undertook – undertaken

Some irregular verbs ending in -d in both past tense forms change this last letter to -t

bend – bent – bent 

build – built – built 

lend – lent – lent

Some words don't change their form in the past tense, but you don't need to add the ending -ed to them – usually short three-letter words

let – let – let

put – put – put

set – set – set

 

 

By dividing all irregular verbs into certain categories, you'll find it easier to memorize them. But so that you don't have to do this rather complicated task yourself, the authors of Booyya courses have already done it for you. We'll tell you more about the course below.

Н3 How many of these verbs there are in English and how many of them you need to know

Another good news is that for everyday use, you should memorize the basic and most common 50 or 100 of these verbs. You only need to know the three forms of 600+ words if you plan to read classic English literature in the original. 

Н3 Important tips for students

To master this topic of English perfectly, follow our tips:

  • Learn not only the forms, but also their meanings.

  • Don't try to learn the whole verb table at once. Take small steps – even two words a day will lead you to success.

  • Immerse yourself in the foreign language. To make it easier and faster to memorize all three forms, make sentences and dialogues with them. Also, consume more English-language content to get used to the living language and memorize it the way children do.

Н2 Learn three forms of irregular verbs with Booyya

  4. Flash cards with the correct pronunciation. With them, learning will turn into a fun game.
