Recently, I have been reading a book about learning and memory. It contains a lot of facts, but the longer I read it the more it seems obvious that there is only one way to learn anything. And that is by learning. To sum it up, all the research shows that the more time you spend learning, the more you learn. It seems there is no easy way around it.
In my teaching I have devised a lot of methods to make the learning easier for my students. Even though many of the materials are interesting and helped many of my students learn a lot of things, I have avoided overloading them with a lot of practice. I made a mistake. Only the practice makes perfect and the students should be given as many chances to practise the language as possible.
In this post, I would like to partially repay the debt. This post contains 10 quizzes in which the students can learn 90 irregular verbs. Each quiz contains a short activity where students should supply the past tense and past participle of the given verb. The second part contains sentences which should be completed with the past participles and past tenses of the ten verbs practised before.
At the end of each test the students are asked to provide their names and they can compare their results with other students.
All the tests will work on desktops and mobile devices. I hope you will find these quizzes useful and your students will learn a lot.
