One of the things teachers find difficult to make students understand is that the ‘e’ in the past of regulars verbs is never pronounced. No matter how many times teachers correct the pronunciation of past regular verbs, students keep saying /talked/ or /happened/ instead of /tokt/ or /hapend/.
Just for the non-believers, Paul teaches you how to pronounce past regular verbs. Listen and repeat and next time you are in class be nice to your teacher and try to pronounce verbs properly. I bet your teacher will thank you greatly and people will understand your stories when you speak about the past.
