The past form of irregular verbs in English don’t follow any rules, while regular verbs in English in the past end in -ed. But did you know there are three different ways to pronounce the -ed endings of these verbs? It all depends on whether the verb ends in an unvoiced consonant, a vowel or voiced consonant, or a /t/ or /d/ sound.
Many students ask us about this tricky pronunciation point, which is why Kate recently covered this topic in her Friday live to help you feel more confident using -ed endings in work meetings and beyond!
You can watch the recording below, and don’t forget to also download your free cheat sheet at the bottom of the blog to help you practise -ed endings.
