Learn how to pronounce `-ed´ correctly!!!

Last week we were revising the pronunciation of regular past and past participle verb forms, so here are some links to help you learn and practise the rules.

I strongly recommend you listen to this clear explanation of the rules .
You can also watch this great video lesson.Don't forget to click on the links you can find below the video, they're really helpful too.

Now it's your turn to check if you've learnt the rules.

  1. Do these online exercices.
  2. Listen and repeat
  3. Common irregular verb forms: Watch this video, listen and repeat.
  4. Past simple or past perfect?

Learning tip:
 Keep in mind that learning rules is useless if you don't put them into practice. You  won't be able to speak English fluently and accurately unless you use what you learn whenever you have the chance.
