List of frequently used verbs. :- 

Instead of giving just list of verbs I have given sentences below. Sentences are in past tense because for few verbs, past tense form is bit different. 


So by taking the verbs from here and applying rules of sentence formation you will be able to use them in different tenses.


Verbs are not given in alphabetical order instead I have tried to match order in our daily routine. This is as per my friend’s suggestion as this technique helped him when he learnt new language. By studying them in this sequence you can speak with your self every time you do some activity.


This is Part -1 of verbs, more verbs in further posts.
