Pronunciation of irregular verbs

It’s easy to learn the simple past and past participle form of regular verbs in English. Learning irregular verbs, however, is no easy task!

But why? Well, irregular verbs are not formed with -ed endings, the simple past and past participle forms usually have different endings. Some examples are the verbs: break-broke-broken or begin-began-begun.

In this video you will learn how to pronounce them all!

Comparisons with as…as

If you’re a basic English learner, you must already know how to make comparisons using -er or more, sentences like “Brazil is bigger than Peru” or “Accommodation in Mexico city is more expensive than in Playa del Carmen”. That’s a basic way of expressing comparisons. In this video, however, I’ll teach you a different way, using as…as.

1. Say the hour first and then the minutes. Hour + Minutes

  • 6:25 – It’s six twenty-five

2. Say the minutes first and then the hour.  (Minutes + PAST / TO + Hour)

When it is 15 minutes past the hour we normally say: (a) quarter past

When it is 15 minutes before the hour we normally say: a quarter to

  • 12:45 – It’s (a) quarter to one
