Do your students know how to use stative verbs like think, love, smell and have? A stative verb is a verb in English grammar that is used to describe a state of being (I am) or a situation (I have). It refers to the way something is, feels, or seems. These verbs do not indicate physical activity (I walk) or procedures.

ESL learners sometimes face difficulties while using stative verbs in English. The reason is that these verbs cannot be usually used with Continuous tenses. Test what your students know with interactive exercises presented below. The exercises are suitable for the Pre-Intermediate level.
