Practice Makes Perfect: English Verbs
In Practice Makes Perfect: English Verbs, students have the opportunity to study verbs in the three areas of form, meaning, and use. The text contains comprehensive overviews and exercises, both receptive and productive, on verb tense and aspect. Students conjugate verbs, but they also study the meanings these verb forms carry and the contexts in which they commonly appear. The verbs chosen for exercises come from a list of frequently used verbs. The first chapters present relatively straightforward verb phrases; the final chapters introduce more complicated forms, including phrasal verbs, modal verbs, and verbal complements (gerunds and infinitives). English Verbs also contains chapters on sentence constructions in which verbs play a central part: imperatives, conditionals, and passives. By working through each of the chapters in this text, students will achieve a comprehensive understanding of the English verb--a major step in acquiring a new language.
