Let's Have Fun! - Verbs

Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about the quiz called “Let's Have Fun” but your teacher will probably talk to you about "Verbs". If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.

Yes, let's have fun... with verb choices! Verbs are known as "doing" or action words. "Sing", "Dance", "Talk", "Fly", "Think" are all verbs. When you play this quiz, the verb is "play"', because that's what you are doing - playing the quiz! In each of these questions, only ONE answer contains the right verb: which one is it?

1.
Complete the sentence with the correct verb.
Nobody in our group ... ... where we are going.

2.
Complete the sentence with the correct verb.

3.
Complete the sentence with the correct verb.

6.
