If you often find the need to use two verbs together in same phrase or sentence. The method in which the second verb is used is referred to as the verb pattern. The second verb is often dependent on the use and form of the first verb to dictate how it should be used, but the opposite can also be true in some rare situations. In most cases the second verb will be followed by -ing and when that happens the (to) infinitive proceeds the first verb. These worksheets help students recognize and use verb patterns to their advantage when forming sentences.
