You might just want to put the infinitives. Even irregular verbs tend to follow some patterns. When you get both past tenses, write like "kopen kocht gekocht" and it REALLY helps. For German we had to memorize the past tense and my teacher put stuff like "kaufen kaufte gekauft" or "tun tat getan" and I remember all three together because it's just easy to remember somehow, so when you want to draw a correct past tense verb from your memory, it would be hard to do so if you've memorized "zwem zwemt zwemmen" or something.

Just what I'd do, everyone does it differently. But it might be a good thing to consider. :3

Proven learning methodology indeed, it's how I learnt the irragular verbs in primary school. Infinitive - first person past tense - past participle, e.g.: "zwemmen zwom gezwommen", "eten at gegeten", "doen deed gedaan".

Since I'm super new to Dutch I'm just doing the words as they're presented on here, I don't really know the grammar yet so I don't actually know which form is the infinitive, or else I would have put them like that. I only know present tense right now so yeah. But thank you!

(and like, when i study verbs for like Spanish (which i'm more fluent in - i just don't use duolingo for it) i always put them in the infinitive for memorization and stuff haha)

Infinitive is like...

eten geven gaan nemen

Usually ends with -en or -n. If you know how the verbs are conjugated, you only have to learn one word -- the infinitive. ^.^

Really useful!

In case you're planning to make some more, or if you want to adjust your existing ones, I think it would be useful to add the articles to the nouns (so "de" or "het"). If you learn the boat = de boot, the water = het water right away it makes life a lot easier for the vast majority of sentences you want to write or speak.
