Strong Verbs: Class 1

In German, the irregular verbs are called "strong verbs". I guess because they have their own will.
It can be very strenuous to learn them. Give me some light, will ya?
Oh, I will!
Since German loves order, even the irregular verbs have some regularity. They sometimes follow certain patterns, so we classify them in classes. (dah!)
I will show you which groups there are in something like a six chapter novel.
You have clearly never read a good novel.
As I was saying... Once you have learnt and practiced the first class, we will move on to the next one.
