Classification of Verbs in English Language


Now that you are able to conversate in English, we have to work on your grammar to improve your writing skills. As a beginning we will learn about regular and irregular verbs.

To have a better idea of regular and irregular verbs we will learn what is an infinitive.
Infinitive:  This is the original form of teh verb. The form that is presented when you speak in present tense. Example:
Laugh   -     Cry   -   Learn  -  
To show that is the infinitive form you have to add "to" in the beginning. 
To laugh-   To cry  -  To learn
Regular Verbs: These are the verbs that when you are talking in past tense just add "ed" at the end and automatically you said it in past tense. Example: 
I play soccer.
I Played soccer. 
Irregular Verbs:  These are the verbs that when you are talking in past tense change their infinitive form and are written in other ways. Example:
I tell the truth.
I told the truth.
