A student of mine asked me for a list of common verbs, with their past forms, because he keeps getting confused.
Here is the list that I made for him. You could find this useful too.
Common verbs that are regular:
|Learn||Learnt (Br.), Learned (Am.)|
|Surf (the internet or the sea)||Surfed|
Common irregular verbs:
|Be (am, is, are)||Was, were|
To practise, do this quiz.
