Online Grammar Course: Verbs

The verb might be the most important part of the sentence. It is where the "action" happens, it tells us what the subject is actually doing, what is happening with it. In the simplest form, when you say "Danny sat", then Danny, the subject, was performing the action of sitting.

In the lesson, you will see that there are more kinds of verbs, not only the simple action ones, but also compound verbs (where the subject is doing more than one action), linking verbs which describe a state of being rather than performing an active action, and helping verbs which put the verb into a broader tense concept.

An interactive exercise is also available, in which you can practice your knowledge and get immediate feedback.
