Let’s Play With English: Pink Verb Quiz, 1A

If you have been doing the verb quizzes on my blog, this is the fourth quiz. If you want to find the list of pink verbs, you have to go back about five blogs to find the list of pink verbs, but I have also included them at the end of this blog to make it easier for you. The pink verbs are used often, but not as often as the red verbs. That is why I always give the red verbs first. However, these verbs are important too. The only tenses used on this level are simple present tense, simple past tense, present progressive or continuous tense, and simple future tense. These tenses are all explained in the second blog in this series, and you can also find a list of pink verbs with their past tense there. On these quizzes, you fill in the blanks with the correct verb and the the correct tense of the verb. The answers are at the end. If you make 80% or higher, you are ready for the next level (level 2) and don’t need the other level 1 pink quizzes, but if you get less than 80%, you need to go back and study before you take another level 1 pink verb quiz. These quizzes are designed to help you learn to not only conjugate, but also know how to use the verbs in a sentence. Look for the clues in the sentences. They get harder and harder so you can go up in your English level by doing them. Good luck! (I think it is important to say that there are many religious questions because these were originally made for Koreans at a Christian university, and they needed to learn to talk about what they did all the time.)
