Irregular verbs



It is a good exercise to improve the different rules of irregular verbs but there isn't every irregular verbs

Hello teacher, are the verbs "pay" and "burn" regular verbs or irregular verbs? Thanks.

Hello Tinnam,

'Pay' is in the list of irregular verbs above.

'Burn' is a regular verb, though it can have an irregular past participle: burn - burned/burnt - burned/burnt.

You can check whether a verb is regular or irregular in any online dictionary, such as this one.

Thank you for your help!

Hello teacher, this English learning platform is brilliant. I learn everyday and it's been 2 weeks, but, I have a problem. There is no one beside me who can correct my mistakes while speaking and writing in English. Could you please help me?
May I post here some of my writings?
Thank you

Hello Saakshee,

I'm very glad to hear that you find LearnEnglish useful! You are very welcome to post your writings here, but I'm afraid we don't provide the service of correcting users' writing. Other users might respond to you, though, so please do share them if you'd like to. We can also answer a specific question of yours from time to time.

I'm not sure if this is possible for you or not, but I'm sure that if you took a class at a British Council Centre in India, your teacher could give the kind of feedback you're looking for.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
