Why do language students have the wrong


mindset about Irregular Verbs?
Stop! headline news....Irregular Verbs are more often than not the
most difficult part of any language to learn, but why?
The common belief amongst language students of all languages is that irregular verbs do not
follow patterns like the regular verbs, therefore making them very difficult to learn and master.

The truth is, that when it comes down to it, the problem lies with a student’s often misguided
concerns regarding the potential difficulty of learning the irregularity of a verb, the actual task is
actually no more difficult than learning the conjugations of a regular verb.

Strange statement to make I know but look at it this way.....

In Spanish there are three ‘regular’ verb types, so called because they follow a regular set pattern.
Each pattern relating to different verb endings,these endings are; -ar; -er; and –ir.

Now you’ve probably already learnt or memorized the endings for each conjugation for each of
these verb groups and have been told that you will have no option but to memorize each irregular
verb as they are all different.

This is misleading!

Nearly all Irregular verbs follow formations that other irregular verbs copy therefore enabling them
to be put into groups.

In my opinion if these ‘irregular verbs’ can be grouped they can and should be treated as regular
verbs also.

Great! you are probably saying, I’ve now got more regular verb groups to learn !

But remember that I started this report by stating that the inherent fear students have is of the
difficulty learning irregular verbs compared to regular verbs.

This simple declassification of irregular verbs into a regular type grouping should dismiss any
anxieties once felt

You should remember this...

Learning is a state of mind, believing something is difficult often leads to to it being just that, so
you need to get the right mindset, think positive and your learning experience will mirror that
belief and as a result your studies will become easier.

‘2000+ Spanish Irregular Verbs’ will provide you with all the variants and groupings of irregular
verbs you will ever need to make learning these specific verb groups much easier than ever
before.

So please study this free booklet and you will see how ‘2000+ Spanish Irregular Verbs’ can and
will prove itself an invaluable aid to your studies

Thank you and enjoy.
