Me encanta la pronunciación del profesor. Es excelente.

Luisa Elena Cecchetti

    Thank you so much for this great lesson !
    As you said it’s not a real problem not to remember the functions or the roles of these infinitives, but the most important is to know how to use them correctly while speaking or writing !

    Thank you Alex.

    Nabil

Thanks Alex! You have been my favorite teacher so far :)

kulet_1010

    I couldn´t agree more!!! Mr. Makar is also one of my favorite online teachers. He explains grammar with great ease.

    I take my hat off to him!

    Regards

    Regino

      I followed your adviced Alex, and watched this video again; just to make sure I had understood the different functions of infinitives in a sentence.

      Of course I redid the quiz, well-desined by the way.

      Bye, take care.

GOT 100! HEY ALEX! HOW’S IT GOING? ABOUT THIS SENTENCE: – TO DO THE RIGHT THING ISN’T EASY.. COULD I SAY: – DOING THE RIGHT THING ISNT EASY?

brunnocezzar24

    Hey Brunno, actually yes, you can say it like that, the gerund replaces the infinitive as a subject in the sentence, hope it was helpful.

Thank you for your lesson! It was interesting to get to know how to use some grammatical structures. F.e.”to” at the beginning of the sentence or that it can be right to use some “to” in one sentence.

natalianew

well…..i took the test, scored 10 out of 10, it was very easy, basic english, but i wonder whether IELTS will be as easy as such……still i appreciate this website and the teachers here who have put up such an effort to teach people english…..hats off to you all

dr_tanmoy

Can I get all the collection of lessons in one package ? Thanks

Ardaneswara Purnama Putra

7/10 :-( “to be or not to be that’s …..” maybe not to be 7/10?????… :-((

Jorge Pedroso

I have one question to you Adam. In the beginning of the lesson you have used the word “often” and you spelled the “T”? I thought the T was mute in the word!

Jorge Pedroso

    Bom día Jorge,

    Not “spelled”, you actually meant “pronounced”. Check out e.g. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/often .
    Both patterns are used. In the UK, “t” is usually silent in this word, but it depends on the origin of the speaker.

    David

Thanks.

beecat12

Hello Alex, can you explain this for me :
The first step is to feel positive about learning English. I don’t understan why we have to use ” to feel” instead of feeling.
By the way, your lesson is very useful for me. Thank you

At some point of the video, you said “It’s not that important to…” I’d like to know if there are differences among the constructions “it’s not that +verb”, “it’s not so +verb” and it’s not much +verb”.

Hi Fatiima
I think the correct sentence should be:
“This is a valuable book which you would learn a lot from it”
profitable means to get more money for it

AL2K

I thank you

Gabrielbert

Can I say ‘Learning a new language is helpful’ i.e. can I use gerund form?

sllf

    Hi Sluncheva, how’ve you been?

    As for your question both ways are possible. That is, to use either an infinitive or gerund as a subject of a sentence.

    To lear a new language is useful=

    Learning a new language is useful.

    As far as I can tell both sentences have exactly the same meaning.

    Good luck with your English Sluncheva.

    Bye for now.

Thanks a lot, Alex! It’s a very useful lesson! But I’ve remembered the one another case of infinitive used in tv news’ headlines. E.g. “Rambler to boost development” (noun-infinitive-noun). What is the form? How should we understand it?

hi guys my Skype is fred.martinez38 if you want to practice the idiom.

Fred

First of all, congratulations and thank you very much for this website and the wonderful videos. They are amazing and very useful! This is really nice!
Also, I have question about this lesson: When we use a verb as a subject of a sentence, I thought the right way was to use the ‘-ing’ form, e.g. ‘smoking is bad for health.’ But in this video, the infinitive with ‘to’ is used instead. Then, should it be ‘to smoke is bad for health?’
Could you help me, pelase?

TheRedKnight

My erros were # 07 and # 08. It is not so bad. Isn’t it??!!
Thank you Alex!

sweetlullaby1

First of all I really do thank you for your precious lessons!And I would like to ask if there is any possibility to post lessons of ‘impersonal structure’, ‘cleft sentences’ and ‘participle clause’, if there is and you can be able to post them.. It would be really helpful to me and I guess to others too.. =)

dorycam

    Hi all al Itatlan

    Esmaeel

Thanks Alex for your lesson, it’s been very helpful. Now, I have a question, when can you use a -ing form, instead of the infinitive one? I mean, e.g.:
-It’s not easy learning English ( instead of ‘to learn’) or,
– My dream is opening my own business or,
– Doing the right thing is not easy or
– They love traveling.
etc.

I’m pretty confused about this Infinitive – Gerund thing.

Thanks in advance! :)

raqueldom

I like your teaching style

h.mariyam

Hello Alex.

First of all, great lesson. But I have some doubts.

To do the right thing is not easy, can we use a Gerund instead of infinitive:
Doing the right thing is not easy?
and where can we use both of them?

Is ‘help’ always used with gerund?
Is there anybody

Manolya

    Hi Manolya:
    It was my understanding that ‘help’ is not always used with gerund.
    ‘help’ can be used as causative .
    For more details I refer you to Adam’s English Grammar–Causative lesson.
    hope this helps! See you!

Wow, I think I did this test quikly

Oleg Tomson

Can I write “Her job is assisting you'”? Or does it have to be written as “Her job is to assist you.”?

Pattan

I don’t think it could be adj,it’s more like an object complement in sentence 4

Mieless

    Hi Mieless:
    Let me understanding.
    Sentence 4 may be a reduced sentence from ‘We decided that we will not attend’.
    ‘that we will not attend'(noun clause–dependent clause) acts as an object to decided.
    By taking out ‘that we will’ and turning ‘attend'(base verb) into ‘to attend'(infinitive),we simplify a noun clause into an infinitive.
    Hope this helps!
    Why?and How?.See you next time!

    englisheleven

Thank you very much for your valuable explanation. It can be useful for us !

ratha.yi

Hello, Alex! It is geat to see your lessons! It is very useful. But I have a question about infinitive using as adjective. As I know, adjrctive is a modifier and it modifies a noun. It asks the question “what?” For example: “I have got a red coat”. What coat? Red one. In your example – “I told you to wait.” What noun does the infinitive modify? “You”? May be I am not so familiar with english, but I have not found in any grammar books this kind of explanation about using infinitive as an adjective. Moreover, there is more obvious example of using infinitive as an adjective – ” I have a lot of wark to do”. What wark? To do!

Timvic

    I am sorry! Of course, I made the mistake – not “wark” but “work”.

    Timvic

I got 90% correct, I want to learn more to improve my english.

I hope you to answer me soon :)

Lucho Molina

    hi. nice to meet you.
    actually i am wondering the correct answer for the 10th question.

why I can’t say “The purpose of this activity is to help you to improve”.

ppgsilvia

is great, adorei sua explicação objetiva e clara, thank you.

Alexandre Bezerra

Hi Alex! Why do not we use second infinitive before improve in the correct sentence of the last quiz ‘The purpose of this activity is to help you improve’?

Akbar Safi

Sir Alex, first of all I would like to thank you for all the lessons you’ve been teaching us over the Internet. Secondly, I have got a question in regards to this lesson. In these two sentences the first one is from the Quiz and is surely correct. How about the second one, isn’t it correct too?
-The purpose of this activity is to help you improve.
-The purpose of this activity is to help you to improve.

fardinshah

failed to wrap my head around the difference between a gerund and an infinitive or a noun ; (
e.g.:
– to help others is a noble goal
– helping other is a noble goal
– to love is to sacrifice
– love is sacrifice
confused

HentaiAsFolk

Hi, Alex!
Just decided to have the test and, consequently, I have only one mistake as a result. And guess where? “we decided not to [do something]”. Is it supposed to be a correct answer? I’ve always known that it is wrong to put “no” before “to”. But excluding the wrong anwers, I’ve come to another anwer which looked more correct (If i’m not mistaken, it was “We decided not [doing smth]”)

Maxxx89

    Hm…. It seems that the thing I remembered was “do not put [no] after [to] and before infinitive ^^.

    Maxxx89

thanks 100

Satilmis

Excellent teaching. But I find difficulty in reaching the lesson I stopped at. So I suggest numbering the lessons, or giving a shade to the lesson that one already studied. Or giving the students the option putting a tick or a ☆ on the lessons they finished.

Hi Adam,
Could you mind checking the grammatically mistakes these sentences, I will be very thankful to you, for that.
Combine the following sentences in a single sentence by using an infinitive.
1. I have engaged a private tutor. He will teach me English.
I have engaged a private tutor, to teach me English.
2. He is very weak. He cannot walk.
He is very weak, to walk.
3. I looked out of the window of my carriage. I wanted to see the green pastures.
I looked out of the of my carriage, to see the green pastures.
4. The proposal is quite unreasonable. It cannot be accepted.
The proposal is quite unreasonable to accept.
5. He want to gain the first position. He works hard for it.
He want to gain the first position, to work hard

Thank you again.

You are right, as long as I can understand and construct sentences it’s alright. Although I can construct well but sometimes I make mistake, and don’t even understand where I am going wrong. Maybe because it’s not my mother tongue. When someone say wrongly constructed sentences in my language. It seems funny, how did they even come up such sentences. But then again I am doing same with other’s language. So I decided to learn honestly.
