You can write a verilog module instantiated in vhdl directly as it can be done for vhdl module. or viseversa. Just compile as you compile regularly...elaborate top level testbench..simlate...this is valid for cadence nc ...

verilog testbench books

Hi Keith,
Aim of testbench is to verify the functionality of Device Under Test (DUT), so you need to generate the various possible inputs for DUT and observe the outputs of DUT. One way to make sure that DUT is behaving correctly is to compare the output with the expected output for the inputs provided to DUT. You can use behavioural model off DUT for generating expected outputs.
You can instantiate the DUT in your testbench and drive its inputs from testbench.

You can refer to books for detailed description. If you have some specific doubt, do post it.

Regards,
Jitendra

Well, writing a testbench for a design could be a hassle it depends on the design itself. Well, if you are serious about learning how to build a testbench, let me know and I can help you out by showing you the right path.
