Summary

It's a good idea to learn verbs in groups, depending on how many forms they have for the infinitive, past simple and past participle.

One form

  • put, put, put
  • shut, shut, shut

Two forms

  • find, found, found
  • have, had, had

Three forms

  • choose, chose, chosen
  • ring, rang, rung

The last group can be split into further groups in which the three verb forms rhyme, for example:

Rhyming group 1

  • begin, began, begun
  • sing, sang, sung

Rhyming group 2

  • break, broke, broken
  • speak, spoke, spoken

There are more rhyming groups - look at a the Grammar Reference, plus here and here for more tips!
