Do you get confused hearing irregular English verbs? Don't worry, you're not alone! Learning those tricky verbs may seem like a daunting task at first, but with a little help and some enthusiasm, you can conquer them with ease. In this post, I'll walk you through some fun and effective strategies to help you become an irregular verb guru. Plus, I've got some free resources to supercharge your learning journey!
1. Embrace the Quirky Nature of Irregular Verbs
First things first, let's embrace the fact that English verbs can be a little eccentric. Instead of being intimidated, consider them as the colorful characters of the English language. Irregular verbs don't follow the usual rules, but that's what makes them special.
2. Create a Personalized Learning Plan
Start by making a list of irregular verbs you want to conquer, or highlight the most difficult verbs on your irregular verb list (download below). Break them down into a manageable amount, so you don't feel overwhelmed. Learning a few at a time is much less intimidating than trying to memorize them all at once.
3. Use Engaging Resources

6. Don't Be Afraid to Make Mistakes
Lastly, don't be discouraged by mistakes. Learning is a process, and everyone makes errors along the way. In fact, making mistakes is a sign that you're pushing your boundaries and learning new things.
