In this unit we are working again with adjectives, but this time we are going to study antonyms or opposite adjectives. Remember that an adjective is a word that modifies or describes a noun or pronoun. An adjective can indicate what kind of, how many, whose, or which. In general, adjectives usually appear before the noun they modify or after a linking verb. For example: “That is a red ball” (adjective before the noun) or “That ball is red” (adjective after the linking verb).

On the topic of adjectives and prefixes, many languages have prefixes that turn adjectives into their opposites. The most common one in English is the prefix un- (unhappy, unlucky, unusual etc.), in- (incorrect), dis- (dishonest), il- (illegible), ir- (irregular), and im- (impolite), and so the opposite form cannot be predicted with any certainty.

Here you have a antonym adjectives list you can look up while you are doing the following exercises:

Now we are going to practice with the PAST SIMPLE and the PRESENT PERFECT SIMPLE. Remember you have to know the list of irregular verbs you have in your workbook (page 144). In the following links you will find exercises to practice them:
