    Teaching -ed and -es/-s forms

    Hello people: Just wondering if anyone has ever taught the rules for pronunciation of regular verbs and final "s" and "es" in a simple way, that is, without having taught the phonetic symbols. Thanks in advance for any idea you may have. (I can't think of any! )

    Go to The rules for past tense of regular verbs final "d"/"ed" (t & d sounds) are too many to remember but the rule for the "id" sound is easier to teach/learn. The rules for 3rd person singular and regular, plural nouns (final "s"/"es") are easier to remember.
