Verb Machine


You can make any English tense or verb form by clicking four buttons. Don't believe us? Have a go!



Excellent. As a teacher, my only suggestion for improvement would be to allow the student to toggle the TENSE NAME on and off as that seems to be a bit of a giveaway at times.


I´m starting to work as an english teacher and I´d like to know some tips on how to present the first lesson, that is, what is the best way to measure my student´s english skills. Thanks

Hello Bruno,

That's great! Please note that our focus at LearnEnglish is on English learners - for the kind of advice you seek, I'd recommend our sister site TeachingEnglish. If you search for 'first class' there, you'll find several pages with ideas for this.

Good luck!

All the best,

Hello maxmamun,

I'm afraid we don't comment on other sites or explanations, so I can't say anything about that. It's also difficult to tell you what sentences in isolation could mean, as language always occurs in context, and so it's difficult to give accurate responses to this sort of comment without having to explain a lot of details. We are too small a team with too much other work to be able to do that.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
