Do you know the correct form?

Let's do one more activity. In this one we'll test how well you know the different forms of these irregular verbs, by taking part in a conversation that has lots of examples of them.

Imagine you've just got back from a lovely holiday and you're telling your very patient friend all about it. You're looking through all the snaps (photographs) you took.
