Learning English Irregular Verbs

Irregular verbs are a special type of verbs that do not follow the usual pattern when they are used in past tenses. These verbs don’t get usual -ed in simple past and past participle but form other types of verbs. In English, there are about 370 irregular verbs and the easiest way to learn all the forms is to learn them in groups.

A lot of verbs are the same in all three forms for example bet, burst, hurt, put, and others. That means that we can learn just the infinitive and use it in all three forms for example. At present: I always bet on my team. In the past simple: I bet on my team a while ago. Or we can also use it as past participle for example I had bet on my team before I changed my mind.

The other group of verbs is really big. A lot of verbs have the exact same simple past and past participle like bring (brought, brought), feel (felt, felt), get (got, got), sell (sold, sold), and so on.

There are also some rare examples of the verbs with the same infinitive and simple past, but different past participle, like beat (beat, beaten) and somewhere infinitive and past participle are the same like becoming (became, become), come(came, come) and run (ran, run).

And of course, the last group where none of the forms match, verbs like be (was/were, been), eat (ate, eaten), fall (fell, fallen), and others.
