GRAMMAR: Stative and Active Verbs

In Unit 1 you learned how to use two different present tenses, the present simple and the present continuous, for different kinds of actions. But there are some verbs (called stative verbs) that are not used in continuous tenses because they express a permanent state rather than an action.

These are

verbs of senses: feel, hear, see, smell, taste

verbs of feelings: dislike, like, love, forgive, hate, prefer

verbs of opinion: believe, understand, agree, suppose, think, know

other verbs: appear, seem, belong, depend, have (possess), mean, own, want, look

Use the words from the list to complete the sentences. There is one extra word.
