All Verb Forms in 1

To construct any simple verb form, follow these steps:

Present

Choose the infinitive form of the verb - walk, eat, drink, play, go etc.

  • Everyday, I eat an apple.

  • I play football on Wednesdays.

  • I live in London.

Past

Choose the past form of the verb - walked, ate, drank, played, went etc.

  • Yesterday, I ate an apple.

  • I played football last week.

  • I lived in London when I was younger.

Future...

To construct any future verb form, follow these steps:

Place 'will' before the verb form - simple, continuous or perfect.

  • I will eat an apple tomorrow.

  • I will play football next week.

  • I will live in London when I am older.

So, to make future simple, you use will & the infinitive of the verb.

To construct any continuous verb form, follow these steps:

                                                    verb BE & verb + ING

  This verb changes according to :                                          This doesn't change                                        

                                                                 - subject

                                                                 - past / present

                                                                 - singular / plural 

To construct any perfect verb form, follow these steps:

                                                      verb HAVE & verb - past participle

This verb changes according to :                                                               This doesn't change                                        

                                                                 - subject

                                                                 - past / present

                                                                 - singular / plural
