From the Back Cover:

An in-depth exploration of English verbs

The verb is at the heart of every single sentence. But this aspect of grammar can be difficult for students studying English for the first time. A minor alteration in verb form can completely change the meaning of a sentence. Once you master verb usage, though, you'll be well on your way to speaking and writing in English as if it were your native language.

Practice Makes Perfect: English Verbs takes you through the various verb forms, beginning with the present and past tenses and concluding with more complex forms such as imperative, passive, and conditional. Each section of this book includes numerous exercises to help you incorporate English verbs into your writing and speech.

Carefully organized to facilitate students of English as a second language, this easy-to-follow workbook provides:

  • Clearly written, comprehensive overviews of verb tenses and meanings
  • Dozens of practical exercises to help you perfect verb usage
  • A list of frequently used verbs and a chart of irregular verbs
  • Special chapters on imperative, conditional, and passive sentences

More than a mere guide to help you remember English verb tenses, this practical, insightful book aids you in understanding how and why certain verb forms are used. Under the guidance of Practice Makes Perfect: English Verbs you'll move beyond the basics and master the subtleties that come natural to native speakers.
