emmm…. I didn’t understand the difference…. When may we use gerund and when infinitive?

pokerface

    Hi.. You can use both. With the verbs: like, love, hate. You can say: I like swimming or I like to swim. I love dancing or I love to dance. Take care..!!7

    juantrejos27

      Thanks!)))

      pokerface

    I DIDN’T understand the difference i would like you to gime what’s the difference because as i know there are difference between them …………. but tks it was a easy way to understand what a gerund is :D

    RU GC

      This is that easy: Take a look how you can write a sentence in two different ways.
      I love dancing.
      I love to dance.
      WRONG WAY: I love to DANCING.
      This case it’s mixed the first and the second ways. It’s is grammatically wrong.

      See you buddy.

      Marcio de Moraes

    There is no any rule. you can use both
    I like to swim / I like swimming. both are correct .
    though there are some verbs that must be followed with gerund. as much as I know

    naor575

    It doesn’t matter when you use which as long as you don’t use both of them in the same sentence.

    Tim0thy

    hi…, there are not difference you can choose whatever you want

    Lefront

    This lesson is very useful
    ty so much

    kotoz

    you will use “to + base” verb (when talk about your self preference or what *you* like) e.g :i like to shop something
    but you’ll use “verb/noun + ing” when you talk about your opinion about that verb or noun e.g : i hate shopping,, so you’re talking abot the shoping it self not about self’s opinion,,, i hope you get it

    Ali - kh

Thanks for your funny lecture.
I always wondered if there is any difference between these two expressions in meaning…
1-I like swimming
2-Ilike to swim

huseyn

    Me too.

    hiromiduki

    as i know,there is no diffirent meaning between them. it’s just 2 different ways.

    jonywish

      Hello,
      I wondered when you said that there is not difference between I LIKE SWIMMING and I LIKE TO SWIM because I was told that you use GERUND when you are going to talk about ACTIVITIES. For example, I was told that you can not say I LIKE TO SWIM but I LIKE SWIMMING. I also wondered when you said that we can not use them at the same time. Thanks for your explanation, I do know that there is not difference.

      Derly Johanna

    I’m not sure but I can touch the difference when I translate to my language.

    first one as if you say I like swimming as a skill.

    second one as if you say I like to swim as a normal.

    so in my language the differenct something like:

    The cat
    cat

    serajstyle

    NO difference!

    Ronnie

      I love your videos. Thanks!

      andyx

        please correct me teacher if I am wrong

        He likes to write essay or He likes writing essay.
        former is subject is not doing a work it is just a wish of subject and latter the subject is actually writing an essay .

Thanks for this useful lesson…
I want to know about”Gerunds, Passive Voice”

mourad48

Thanks!!

aloap

I heard that there are some modal verbs which prefer gerund and these ones which prefer infinitives. Is it true? You didn’t mention about it. Anyway, thanks for the great lesson. Please correct me if I made a mistake.

q-bazz

very good lesson.

juan manuel

I am confuse of the correct pronunciation of gerund.One of the teacher says”gerund”. The other one says “djerund” but I see and learn more about the difference between gerund and infinitive that when you put them together, it sounds funny.
May I request more examples and the rules be printed out to understand them clearer. Thanks a lot. More Power! Great!

julietsarmiento8@yahoo.com

    I did not get any point in the sentence ” I am confuse of…….”. It should be ” I am confused ……”. I think so, excuse me if i misunderstood.

    Anup

      I am confused …is correct!

      Ronnie

        HI RONNIE I MA TIRAYING

        yared

        why are we use “ed” in “I am confusED”?

        jumat

          When we put “ed” endings on words, it indicates how we feel! eg…bore = bored. excite = excited. amuse = amused.

          Ronnie

          doesn’t it indicated “past tense” when we use ED at the end of the word(regular past tense)?

          jumat

          Yes, Ed means past tense

          antonio

          I love you
          you are wonderful teacher.
          if you are single pls tell me.I can die for you.

Thank you very much Ronnie. Your lesson has helped me a lot. Wishing you good luck in your job.

Paul

Good class ! I understood this content.

james2011

I don’t understand the difference between TO+VERB and -ING. I know that after of Hate, Love, Like, Mind, Miss, etc we put a verb or noun with -ING, but now, Ronnie say that I also can put TO after this verb. Excuse me my English, I just a student learning.

Felipe

analynnavarette

Thaks a lot! It’s the first time that I understand the use of Gerund and Infinitive correctly.

Jose Moreno

Thank you so much…. You´re a great teacher…!!!

juantrejos27

oh boy, oh boy; I think I get it, Ronnie, but what about using gerunds after prepositions such as: ‘before’, ‘after’, ‘without’, ‘in’ and so on. Would you please make another excellent lesson for us?.
By the way I was surfing the internet and found this sentence:

“I am used to drivING on the left.”

How do you explain that if according to what I’ve just learned from you, it goes against the grammar rules”

THanks a bunch in advance.

Oswaldo

oswcifre

    “be used to” has own rules after which you always use Gerund :

    Im from Poland so Im used to driving on the right side of the road :)

    Ronnie, you are a great teacher, I love your lessons:)

    elli

    Yes, it that sentence, driving is different!

    Ronnie

Very impressive, thanks!

Timour

Your way of teaching is so good..THANKS:)

mariam

can you give us a class about indefiniti and definite articles

SANDRO ELOY

Hi Ronnie!
Thank you for a new portion of positive!

Actually we were always taught that there are difference, e.g. I stoped watching the bird (I don’t watch the bird anymore)/ I stoped to watch the bird (I don’t walk anymore – I watch the bird).
Or means you like to do it, to watch how other people do it, to read about it versus means you like the process you take part in.

elusive

    oops the second part collapsed. this is:
    Or “I like skiing” means you like to do it, to watch how other people do it, to read about it versus “I like to ski” means you like the process you take part in.

    elusive

      Lovely example, especially the second part. As regards “to stop”, the use of verb form is correctly explained, but it has no general relevance, as it works that way just for that verb.

      Alberto

        Well, I must add something. Actually, the ‘-ing’ form in “I stopped watching the bird” is not a Gerund; it’s a Present Participle. That’s why it’s not relevant in this context.

        Alberto

          aaah i see
          thanx )

          elusive

    hi how are you ? i am from Azerbaijan )|) in Baku

    pokoritel

Hi ronnie .i hope u r fine.you are such a great teacher .you really teach the students in easiest and simplest ways.i love watching your lessons ’cause i get to know many things from them.i also have a similar question oswcifre .i know we can say “i am looking forward to meeting him” will you just call it an exception or there is any specific explaination

abbas

    Great question! – “I am looking forward to meeting him” ,is an idiom – idioms never follow any grammar rule!

    Ronnie

Very good explanation. Thanks to Ronnie.

ravisankaryanam66

    mmm That was a good point!!!…thanks Ronnie.

    oklavier

bakhtiar

Hi Ronnie.
I have a question.
Is correct to say: I hate to go shopping

rokefeller65

    Or may be you just could say I don’t like make a purchase if you
    I think it’s surplus even if it’s correct.
    shoping=noun serarching for a purchase
    Or we may justy go to the shop. But if we are shoping we’ve already gone into a shop.
    Forget me for my mistakes if I done some.
    Have a nice day!

    VictorAngrskiy

    Yes!

mahmut46

    Ronnie

Hi teacher :)
By the way…

I have a doubt. Nothing to do with this lesson…

In this phrase:

“Your enemy can kill you, you must kill them first.”

I was talking about just one person, but I did not have idea if that person was a man or a woman…Is correct if I use “them” in this case?

Forgive me for this phrase. I couldn’t think in another better by now.

Thanks… :)

betinhofloripa

    Yes, you can use “them” to talk about a singular person!

    Ronnie

I know it. :) thanks thanks.. :)

abbey

Ronnie, please, bring some light in my mind. I use English Grammar in Use (Cambridge Edition) to study English. The book for intermediate have some lessons about verbs followed by – ing, verbs followed by “to”, verbs followed by infinitive without “to” like must, let, can, may, could, will, would. This book (maybe to British, I don’t know!) says verbs like love, like, hate, don’t mind, enjoy, stop, finish, give up etc. are followed by – ing form. Verbs like decide, want, would like, would love, begin, agree, refuse etc. are followed ONLY by “to”. There is something wrong?! I really would understand (the book don’t mention it) the most verbs are followed by -ing form or by “to”. Do the verbs followed by -ing form are exceptions or the verbs followed by “to”. Thank you lovely!

Miss Ronnie your lesson is too good……..But plz help me in how I can make big sentence. when I write some lines there have made a mistake.

Zafar Soomro

zafar17

    At first, try to make small, correct sentences! To make a larger sentence, you can take a topic and just add information about that topic into the sentence!
    Ex…I have a dog. My dog is cute. My dog is brown. He is funny. He likes dog cookies.
    ex…I have a cute, brown dog, He is funny and he likes dog cookies!

basarkan13

Hello Ronnie, Really need your help on this one: Why do we use “ing” ending for manufacturing processes like machining, tapping, assemblying….why can´t they be simple form verbs like tap, machine or assembly….PLEASE HELP…..THANKS A BUNCH

Luciano

    You have to use -ing because if you didn’t, the words would be a noun! Eg..I am tapping (you are doing the action) NOT I am tape (that means you have become tape!)

    Ronnie

Thank you, useful lesson.

Hi Ronnnie, I like your videos very much, and I was wondering if you could help me…..What’s the difference between these two sentences: “They are getting married” and “they are going to get married”?
Thanks in advance!
Regards!
una

una

    The meaning of the sentences are the same! When we say them, they mean the same thing –
    However, if you look at the grammar of them…….. “They are getting married” is in present continuous = NOW! This means they are getting married right now!
    “They are going to get married” is future!
    Like I said, when we speak, they mean the same thing!

    Ronnie

Oh!my God.

thanks

turkia

I like your lessons. Could you please explain the difference between the three conditionals? Thanks in advance.

Michela

    Zero = for 100% true things (scientific)
    If I melt ice, it becomes water. (If + sub.+ base verb + noun phrase, sub.+ base verb + noun)
    First conditional= things that you are pretty sure will happen (99%-75% true)
    If I eat a hamburger, I will/may/must/should be full. ((If + sub.+ base verb + noun phrase, sub.+ MODAL + base verb + noun)

    Ronnie

I like your teaching .

”Wrap up

Sometimes when I use translate.google.com
I can’t find the proper meaning so how do we get the meanings?

    These are “phrasal verbs” = 2 verbs together that have a new meaning! Look up “phrasal verbs” and you should be able to find a chart or some resource to help you!

Jesus Enrique Camaran

Hi Ms.Ronnie,
I hope my message find u well.Madam
As you know the importance of learning all kinds of English aspects,would it be ok,if i ask u to tell me some of usuall complimentary cluse,and also some of up-to-date salutation,which are more respectful than the others to use.
“future promis even finer thing because friendship is always strongest of the tense.”
thanks in advance.

mahdi

    Yes! Ask me anything!

    Ronnie

pls, explain me the difference between these phrases (me too/ so am I/ same to you)
and then how to use (live/ stay).

EI NYEIN HAN

    Me too = I like pizza. If you agree with this, you can say “me too”!
    So am I = I am hungry. If you feel the same, you can say “So am I! (we only use “so AM I” with adjectives!
    Live is the place where your house is.
    Stay is the place where you are at the moment and is usually for a short time!

    Ronnie

      Thanks for your reply.
      Take it easy!

hi ronnie,
plz help me on dis.. whichever is correct
He admitted taking the money. OR
He admitted to talk about the money.
i dislike complaining
or, i dislike to complain
so i m confused.. somewhere i read some common verbs that can be followed by gerund but not by infinitives.. and also dere are some common verbs tht can be followed by infinitve bt not by gerund…
plz help me on dis…
and will like to thnk u for al d lesonns… :))))

roshan

    “He admitted taking the money” is correct.

    Here is a list of verbs that are usually followed by a verb in gerund form:
    admit, appreciate, avoid, carry on, consider, defer, delay, deny, detest, dislike, endure, enjoy, escape, excuse, face, feel like, finish, forgive, give up, can’t help, imagine, involve, leave off, mention, mind, miss, postpone, practice, put off, report, resent, risk, can’t stand, suggest, understand

    Some verbs can be followed by the gerund form or the infinitive form without a big change in meaning: begin, continue, hate, intend, like, love, prefer, propose, start.
    I like to play tennis. I like playing tennis. It started to rain. It started raining.

Hi dear Ronnie, l appreciate your tired.plz help me about when we use(he,she)in animates.thanks

dli

    I think you mean animals??????? Usually we call animals “it” or “they” because we don’t know what sex they are! Some people will tell you that their cat or dog is a boy or a girl, the you can call it a he or she!

    Ronnie

      With 2 others exceptions: the lion and the lioness! Because you can immediately see if it’s a male or a female! (the mane!). So we usually use “he” or “she” to speak about them… Is it correct?

karam muhamed

In my dictionary, I found that snowboard is just a noun. So I want to know if it is a verb as well. Thanks.

rachelbb28

    Yes it is a verb too!

    Ronnie

Thanks!

Thank u so much 8)

Dear Ronnie,
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your invaluable lesson. I’ve been attending your video lesson for one year and gained good insight since that time. when I come to my today’s question; there are certain verbs which are followed by infinitive with to and gerund as well like the verb”like” which can be he likes swimming and he likes to swim. But there are also other verbs that mainly followed by either infinitive or gerund. fore instance: avoid,stop, refuse, deny, admit, etc. so this rule and your video lecture above doesn’t contradict?
Thanks a lot!

Abe

Thank you, Roonie;)

kamak84

hi Ronnie ..i like ur lesson very much …ur too good in English..

i watch ur english every day … i want to know that do you have any facebook account …if have please send me your email id … i want to keep in touch with you …

praveenpkv24

hi, miss , is this American or British grammar coz i had already taught that i cant say “i like to swim” iif so what does it mean? and something else:what do we mean by saying”I’d like to swim”and “i like swimming.” Are they all the same in meaning?

shaban

    This grammar is American AND British. Whoever told you you cannot say “I like to swim” is wrong.
    I’d like to swim = I would like to swim. This means you want to swim!
    I like swimming/I like to swim= you like the activity of swimming!

    Ronnie

      can I say :”I’d like swimming” or i general: “I’d like + gerund”. A teacher told me It is was wrong and I must say: “I’d like to + verb”

      Thanks for your reply

      oswcifre

        Your teacher is correct.

        Ronnie

can i say i likeS to swim? i confused when to use the ‘s’

gogo

    NO I like to swim. Only use “S” with he/she/it!!!

    Ronnie

hello! please help me! i want knowing the meaning of “like that” and the difference between it and “like this” in speaking with examples.

jneid

    Like that refers to something far away from you that someone else is doing. Like this is something that is close and you can demonstrate yourself!

    Ronnie

Can i use “I was trying to cross the street?”

tran23

hiii, i like your video lecture. thanks a lot

Pritha

Hi! Mam… :) like your lecture it helped me a lot… actually its just superb.. love it and you :)best teacher i have ever had :) stay blessed and keep teaching us :)

kitti11

great job mam… well done :)

kitti11

i really appreciate your way of teaching. it’s impressive.
in the meanwhile i noticed something that gave me a headache. noun+ing never heard of that whatsoever.
what about proper nouns and Compound Nouns …?
gerund is a Verbal Noun that means we can create a noun out of a verb by adding ing and not a noun out a noun by adding ing
have you ever heard about animal becomes animaling

naki adil

incredible website … i appreciate it .. but i suggest adding mote videos about gerund .. best wishes …. :)

pavel

Hi Ronnie,

Is it possible to use “to be” with past participle. For example
1) I am done
2) It is completed
3) He is finished.

If the above mentioned examples are correct, they why the following sentences are in correct

1. He is gone
2. It is come

can you please clarify

thanks,
subu

subusan

    Your sentences are correct!!!! great work!

    Ronnie

      Thanks for the info. Which of the verbs don’t go with “to be”? (For example: He is gone). Otherwise, list of the verbs which cannot be used in passive voice. My understing is that “to be” + past participle is only used in passive voice. please clarify.

      subusan

why ….because *Baltar loves dancing*
**loves**

puinoon

Hey, Ronnie! Could you explain plz the usage of infinitive and gerund. In my grammar book there is a rule that after the certain words such as ENJOY DENY, DISLIKE, EXPRESS, FANCY, AVOID, CONSIDER AND SO FORTH, the gerund is used. Is it a strict rule?

Ash

    Yes, you have to follow that rule!

    Ronnie

hi ronnie .
I wonder how have we to use gerund and infinitive in same sentence like with the verb ” to look forward “. for example :
I look forward to meeting my uncle next week
can I be sure of something

amine cherifi

hi ronnie .
I wonder why do we have to use gerund and infinitive in same sentence with some verbs . like the verb ” to look forward “. for example :
I look forward to meeting my uncle next week
can I be sure of something

amine cherifi

what is the difrence between the two folowing sentences:
built for the kill
built for killing

para

    The first “built for the kill” is specific while the second “built for killing” is general.

    Rouna

hi miss Ronnie, why in Quiz number 4 and 5,the correct answered is “Baltar loves dancing and Baltar loves to dance but wrong if “Baltar love dancing and Baltar love to dance”?” i dont understand why behind the word “LOVE” need to+ “S”? Can u explain about that? Thank u so much^^

chenchen92

    We need to use “S” on ALL verbs when we use he/she/it or a person’s name!

    Ronnie

I guess you have not answer for my question
okay thank you

amine cherifi

Great class!!

debora torelli

Hello my bessssssssst teacher Ronnie.First of all i hope you’re doing well.Thank you so much for this lesson,it’s quiet interesting ! Could you please brievely tell me some verbs that can’t accept gerunds,i mean there are some of them go just with gerunds and others with infitinves,and some accept both,is that correct??

MR.smart

    Yes, there are! Just search on the internet for verb+ gerunds!!! You will find many lists to help you!

    Ronnie

      Thank you so much my bessssssssst teacher,all your advice are very helpful!
      Have nice day miss Ronnie!

      MR.smart

Hi, Ronnie! I´m an English teacher from Argentina, South America. I find your lessons extremely useful for my classes!! There´s one v. pattern I´d like to add, object to DOING sth. Perhaps, you can prepare a lesson on exceptions to To+Infinitive rule, that´ll be great! Thanksss

Lucila

Gracias por su esfuerzo e inigualable carisma de explicar el ingles.

azeddine81

Hello Ronnie, ThxQ for this lesson.

jafcru12

i would like to know, for example i want to go to drive with you or i want to go driving with you! another one is after prepositions, you need to say gerud or infinitive?

ja

    I want to go driving with you! Is more natural sounding than I want to go to drive with you!

    Ronnie

Thank you very much Ronnie you are agreat teacher.

Karaman

Hi Ronnie! Thanks for the tip! I was really confused about “Gerund and infinitive”, but now after this amazing explanation I really got it!

Q4 and Q5 why put s with verb

rekile

HI RONNIE

i have two Q

Q4 and Q 5 why you put S with verb

ikiller

thank you

allulo7

You said that it´s impossible to use infinitive and gerund in one sentence. But what about sentences like “I like to go swimming”? Isn´t swimming a gerund here? Or does it have another name allthough it has the -ing at the end?
Thx in advance!

enosum

Thank you very much.ıt is very good lesson.

Rumeysa

Thx for the lesson. In my book they wrote that we have to use gerund with certain verbs, e.g., admit, avoid, discuss, dislike, enjoy, finish, miss and quit.
but with infinitive we use, agree, choose, decide, hope, learn, need, plan and want.

for both we can use, begin, hate, love, like, prefer.

khawlahf

Thank you

I prefer watching your Les , than TV .
I like listening to your vidio , than music .
If they asking me to make choice , I chosing you than other Teacher .

hasan

You can’t use both Gerund and infinitive in the same sentence? What about the sentence “I would like to be swimming right now”. Is that not a correct sentence grammatically?

malin

    Your sentence is correct. What I meant was you cannot use to+gerund in the same sentence. ex..I like to swimming.

    Ronnie

Hi Ronnie

Ronnie. Just. Hi

yousefarch

hi teacher
I still can’t understand when should we use Gerund and when should we use Infinitive? And what is the different between “I like to play piano” and “I like playing piano” ? Its so confused for me :(

windygafrila27

i would like to know when I use at, in and on in a sentence
can you help me please, I will have a exam
thanks for your help

jaha

Choose the correct sentence:
Baltar (loves) to dance.
Baltar loves to dancing.
Baltar( love) to dance.
Baltar love to dancing
i see it diffrence beetween love and loves , can you explain why used loves?
the way you taught in th video makes me smarter ,thank my lovely friend.

phongvo

I liked your explanation, thank you.

diniz

Ronnie Teacher
I’d like to ask you. I found some verbs in my english book that can use gerund form too:-
to be busy, come, go, sit, complete, escape, get through, go on, worth, to be no good, to be no use, keep, practice, would you mind, loathe, recall
Are they correct or not?
Thanks a lot my teacher.

PAO

    Well, if it says they are correct in your English book – do you think they are????

    Ronnie

I’d like you to confirm because it wasn’t written by native speaker.I bought it from bookstore and was printed in my country.
I believe you.

PAO

    I believe you means I think you are telling the truth!

    Ronnie

Thanks for your lesson!

aidos320

Hi Ronnie,
I’m a little confused. I’m learing English as a foreign language, of course and my teacher said ‘After love, like, enjoy, hate, etc you have to use -ing form and after would like/would love you have to use a infinitive form. There is no other choice’.
And you said ‘I like swimming’ and ‘I like to swim’ was correct.
What’s more, in my english book there is lots of boring explanation when you HAVE TO use -ing form and WHEN infinitive.
So can I always use both forms without difference in meaning?

By the way, thank you for all your lessons – you’re awesome!!! :)

dzach

    Yes — basically, “I like swimming” and “I like to swim” are the same!

    Ronnie

the sentence ”how can stop running?” the world stop is followed by gerund , how many words that i need to know that needs to be followed by gerund as a rule.

CLevrsON

I like doing smth means I enjoy doing it. I like to do smth means It’s a good thing to do. So I would never say I like paying my bills promptly.Because I don’t enjoy it but I think it’s a good idea to do it promptly. But I like reading or I like to read there is almost no difference.

JUL

What I didn’t understand is how we can form gerund from a noun??????? We can use -ing form only with verbs. So all words mentioned like shop,snowboard,etc. can be verbs as well.That’s why we can form gerund

JUL

Hello, Ronnie!
Thank you for what you and other teachers are doing! It’s fascinating!
I have a little question to you. I’d be really grateful if you answered it. It concerns pronounciation. Is it OK when “t” sound sometimes turns into slight “d” sound. For instance, entity(pronounced as entidi), integrity (integridi), curiosity (kjuriosidi), etc. I’ve always wondered for what English-speaking countries such pronounciation is OK.
The thing is I try to adopt American English, but unfortunately have no idea of whether this “d”-trend is OK for them or not.
Thank you in advance. Looking forward to more videos=)

libravirgo

    Yes, most North Americans say “t” like a “d”. I have no idea why!

    Ronnie

Thanks Ronnie. I appreciate your help

jesus1992

Thanks ronnie you are a very good teacher , but i got some doubs about this lesson , i think it must be some verbs to use ing endin and some verbs to use “to”

michael ayala

hi ronnie,
thank u so much for the lesson. you are my favorite teacher :)
by the way I want to ask you about the sentence “taking a knife to exports and regniting inflasion at a time”
what’s the meaning of “taking a knife” ?

Mayang

    Taking a knife = cutting.

    Ronnie

Hi Ms. Ronnie, how are you today? I have a question about this sentence, I don’t know if I am right or wrong. It goes like this. The doctor suggested eating more vegetables and fruits. Can I say the doctor suggested to eat more vegetables and fruits? I am confused!!! I’m looking forward for your reply. Thank you.

elsa22

    Yes, both sentences are correct!

    Ronnie

      here is mentioned above that “suggest” is followed by a gerund. Then the second sentance seems to be incorrect.

      john2

Thanks Ronnie. I got answer from my English teacher last night and he said the answer should be “The doctor suggested eating more vegetables” and not “to eat more vegetables.” I don’t know why. Seems like to eat more vegetables sounds correct too.

elsa22

    that’s what I just said

    john2

Hi Ms. Ronnie, would you do a video about participles. Present and Past Participles. Comparing to Gerund and infinitive. Just want them to know the differences of each of them. Thank you.I will look forward to your video about this. Thanks once again. Is my grammar correct? Please do correct this if you may. Please to hear from u soon.

Dex

*pleased*

Dex

Hello Ronnie! Could you explain what the difference betweenm NO and NOT? How to use them? I’m quite confused right now.

Thanks a miliion, Ronnie. I’m looking forward from your reply.

With Regards,

Thanks a lot

fong

thanks………………………………………;

bindahans072

i’ve watched many of your lessons in youtube…they’re really helpful.
could you please explain about the use of ‘if’ + will/would/should/might+++++
if i’m not mistaken, the way to use shows different levels of certainty…(well, am i correct?) i’m still confused on how to use the correct ‘if + would..or something’ that corresponds to the situation.
Thanx in advance.

mzrozie

    Just search the site for “Modals” – there are about 5 lessons on them for you!

    Ronnie

i#ve got an question, too.
Today I got my class test back and my teacher said, that this sentence would be wrong:

“Shall we go out tonight or do you prefer staying at home?”

she said that I have to write “to stay” instead of “staying”. is that really wrong?

Ö.A.

    Ask your teacher why it is wrong.
    After prefer you can use either a gerund or infinitive! However, there many be another reason why it is wrong – ask her!

    Ronnie

thanks for your quick answer. ;)

Ö.A.

Hi Ronnie,

I’m very haapy with ypur teach. Thanks a lot.

apinaya

    I have went to the shop.

ありがとう、先生。

エマド

    Your welcome student.

    Ronnie

Sorry, but I have a doubt recognizing when a word is a gerund or an adjective/present partciple, for example:
-A frying pan
-A flying insect
I would really like to knwo more about that.
thanks.

Julio

    Both words frying and flying are adjectives. Adjectives come before a noun.

    Ronnie

I was reading the comments of the other people and (I don’t know if I undertood this correctly) you explained that we can use whatever we want (gerund or infinitive) in a sentence and there’s no difference between them. Am I right?

Marcos

    Yes.

    Ronnie

hey Ronnie could you please clarify that why we use loves instead of love in Q.4 and Q.5 of the Quiz???
Answer Awaited !!!!

tushartechgeek

    For he/she/it or a person’s name, you ALWAYS need to use an “s” on a verb in the simple present tense. Ex. I like pizza. He likes pizza. My mom likes pizza.

    Ronnie

Hi Pleas write to me. How i write tis sentences.I like watch tive/Or so I like watch to tv?
I like play to football/or I like play football/

ruqia

Hi Ronnie,
what about the following sentences:
“I’m looking forward to seeing you”
“I’m addicted to making love”
” I’m used to going to parties”
I know they are correct but why is there to+verb+ing?? It there a logical explanation about it??

Patrice

    Used to is an entirely separate grammar point! We use it to talk about past habits!
    The other expressions are just exceptions to the grammar rules! This is why English is SO HARD to learn!!!!

    Ronnie

i got perfect score!!!yehey… it really helps me a lot…

maeangelyn

heey
is it true we use infinitive in a sentence with long complement and gerund without complement? thank you

hola

    I don’t really understand your question. Could you please give me an example!

    Ronnie

is correct to say… i like to go swimming??? or i hate to go shopping??? thanks

rudy9090

hello ronnie. i hope u will be fine. i have a question for u.my question is that when we use “might” nd what is the meaning of “fumming” and “boulavard”??? i hope u will ans me soon tc bye!

manomasa63

    Might is a modal verb, it means the same as may. They mean you are 60% sure of something. Ex…. I might go to the mall today.
    The other words look up in a dictionary.

    Ronnie

how can identify a gerunds or infinitive because there are a group of verbs you can only use as infinitives and others one as gerunds …please help me

tommy

    You just have to memorize the verbs.

    Ronnie

I think it would be great if you could show some rules of verbs in which the difference between gerund and infinitive exist. For example, the verb “to stop”. It’s not the same to say “I stop dancing” and “I stop to dance”. In this case the difference is clear. Would you make a video about it? Thanks, your videos are great!

Élida

Thnx Ronnie

Abdul Qayum

I usually go swimming with my best friend.

Is swimming a gerund?

kevin

Hello, Ii would like to know if “swimming” is considered a gerund or a verb in the following sentence, and why?
I usually go swimming with my best friend and his rather unusual girlfriend.
Thank you kindly.

kevin82

    Some words we must use as a gerund and not infinitive.

    Ronnie

helooo ronnie thanx for answering me i have a request would u pls make a lesson on parts of speech ???? :)

manomasa63

Hi Ronnie,thanks for your lesson but the problems is that what case I should use gerund and when I use infinitive. Hope you will teach us further lessons to make clear about it. Regards

MariaPhuong

Great lesson In my opinion I think this is a lesson for beginners not for advanced level.

raul

I’d like to know when I use the infinite verb and gerund

Adelson Almeida Cunha

Hello!! You´re a fantastic teacher!! Thank you so much for your explanation! I have a sentence:

We could to swim five years ago.
Is it correct to write:
We could go swimming five years ago?

Laura

No estoy de acuerdo.

Grammar

thaks a lot!

diakarol777

Thanks a lot!I could get it.
I like swimming, but I’d not like to swim now.

Gennadiy

There is specific verbs or noun we use for gerund or infinitive like ‘appreciate’ we can use I appreciate to help me. ?

ESRAA

There is specific verbs or noun used with each one can we say ‘ appreciate to help ‘

ESRAA

thanks a lot

ayesha

you are very good to explan

mohammad ali

you are an excellent English teacher ! I love the way your teach . It is so interesting lesson for me!

happy face

Thank you very much.

sona2008

thanx it was really nice

alsadig

Hi Adorable Ronnie, I would like you to explain why people often use this in letter writing? (I am looking forward to hearing from you) I want to know if the infinitive with the gerund is correct.

Eni

Hi guys, I would like to explain other important things about Gerund and Infinitive.
We can use Gerund in verbs after prepositions and when the verb is the first word in the sentence.
Ex.: ‘Smoking’ is bad for you!
John is good ‘at playing’ the guitar.

For Infinitive, when the verb is followed by some adjective we use the verb in infinitive or when we use “Modal Verbs” we put the verb in infinitive too and to finish, when we explain for someone “why we do something” we use the infinitive.

Ex.: I came to Dublin to buy something!
I would like to go to the moon!

Bye guys!!!

higtrollers

Eni, you can’t use gerund and infinitive together.

bye!

higtrollers

It’s absolutely clear about the verb forms with “love” and “hate”. But how to learn what to choose Gerund or Infinitive with the rest verbs? Should we just learn the verb patterns by heart or is there an easy rule?

mikhailtroshin

Ronnie must be one of those cool teacher I wish I had when I was still in school. Love your sarcastic (in a good way) method of teaching.

Mesh

thank you! Now I know how to explain to my students!

Ademi

hello
thank you very much. i have a question you say we have to use ( to+base verb) but ski and snowboard are not verb how do you say : i like to ski or i like to snowboard
best regards

GOLI

    You can say I like to ski/snowboard
    or I like skiing or snowboarding!

    Ronnie

very good lesson, i didn’t know that information. thanks teacher.

elmax56

Now I have not any doubts when I should to use a gerund or an infinitive.Thanks a lot Ronni.

Jolanta

Hi Ronnie! Your lessons rock!!

However, in this lesson, I think that we should make a difference between like/love/hate and other verbs, such as spend or decide which are followed by gerund and to infinitive. One of my students watched this lesson and got confused, he thought that all the verbs can be used in the way we can use like/love/hate, but it is not like that!! Be careful!

Lucila

Well, there are no differents with ‘Gerund’ and ‘Infinitive’?
But i have a problem, in my homework, the sentence is ‘I volunteered________(sell) things myself…’, I put ‘selling’ on. Surprisingly it was incorrect, the answer is ‘to sell’.
So whats wrong with it? Or because the word infront of the line? Or this is only fit for ‘love’,’like’, etc?

Cody

Thank you for video , you make me funny in your class . Teacher if me have a problem can I ask you ?

Zhangsongcei

I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME VERBS THAT CAN BE USED ONLY WITH THE -ING FORM OR WITH THE INFINITIVE. SOME OTHERS CAN BE USED WITH BOTH. WHICH ONES ARE THEY AND WHY IS THIS?

bluewoody

Ms Rooney,
Thank you for this video but I’ve learned “like” differently as a verb. My teacher taught me that if something is your hobby or a general thing that you like and a verb you should use gerund but if it’s more specific you should use infinitive. For example, I like swimming, according to my teacher i like doing it all the time, but if I like doing it only when i am on vacation she said you should say I like to swim when i am on vacation. This is what my teacher taught me. But you say I can use both. I am really confused. Could you help me out?
Ps: Sorry for my terrible english, hope you’ll understand :(

merttumer7

    You can use both!

    Ronnie

Thank you very much for your lesson . It is very use ful. I have got 5…

ThiruS

I believe that the comment made at the beginning of the video that one cannot use both a gerund and an infinitive is not correct. It is possible. For example: I promised to stop smoking., She doesn’t want to risk driving in the rain. Correct me if I am wrong.

DON RAMIREZ

Thank you very much.ıt is very good lesson

maria

Thank you so much

Faisal

i can say i like to dance or i like dancing

rawita

Geruds, like infinitives, function as nouns, not verbs. Just beacause these words take an -ing ending, they don’t have to be verbs in the continuous form. That’s why you can put them at the beginning of the sentence, where they work as the subject. If you don’t see the verb Be in front of a word with an -ing ending, it’s probably a noun (a gerund).

Richard

Thanks I have got 100 or my Tess

Zuhra

Hi Ronnie
I watched your video it was great and clear thaks a million.

i dont like _____ in touch with peile.(keep)

Anna

Thank you for a clear and brief explanation.

Kavitha

Hi! I see a lot of questions I would like to share what I know about gerunds and infinitives. I’ve read in a grammar book that the difference between two sentences such as “I like to swim.” and “I like swimming.” is that when you use gerund you talk about a general class of activity. The reader does not know whether you like to watch swimming or doing the action, that is to actually swimming. In”I like to swim.” the reader clearly understands that you like doing this activity.

honolulki

Thank you Ronnie, you are awesome

Pedro

Thanks for your explanation but I have a questions.When we have to use gerund and when we have to use infinitive????

lola

Hi Ronnie:)
I want to know what difference between I like to swim and I like swimming?

Kim

hi teacher thank a alot .. i saw your videos and i learned a lot of gremmartical rules …but i dont know how to use these words are chosen, taken etc and enlighten- enlightenment … develop – development also…. plz teach me … i am waiting for you …. thanks a lot..

tsering

Dear ronnies
I would like to ask you is it different meaning between gerun and verb infinitive.
Example: I like swimming and I like to swim.
Best wish,

radoe nou

ronnie now i am confused between your two lessons…one is this and another one is the latest FUTURE VS PRESENT CONTINUOUS…..becos in this lesson we are using gerund and infinitives together…its difficult to understand….if possible pls help me…why and how it is so ??

jais

I’ve seen some videos and it’s helping a lot. thanks and congrats!

Diego Mariano

Hi, If I can say I like swimming I can say I want studying now?

claudiosantos418

Hello Ronnie.
I have a question on this tutorial about gerunds and infinitives. Particularly on this sentence, is it good and allowed in English language at all – “I like to go swimming”. Gerunds and Infinitives are the hardest to understand for me..
Thank you in advance.

Asker

I’ve never took English lessons from a native speaker in my life since the day that I found this site. Thank you so much for these lessons, they are very helpful and you are such an amazing person :)

fishtank

Hello Ronnie.
Tell me please if it posible to use infinitive after “How about”.
Is it correct to say “How about to go to the cinema?”

Michael

I like your teaching, because you speak slowly and make me easy to understand what you were explaining. :)

sokkeang9458

Hi ronnie. I’m studying intensive english. well, I have a question about other rules, mm can you tell me when to use would rather or would prefer and embedder wh-questions?
Thank you!
P.D. I like your videoes :)

Jazmin

Thanks Ronnie for the lesson,but I have a feeling that the statement “there is no difference,you can use either of them” isn’t that true. For example, the phrase “I love swimming” have two meanings for me,it’s either the speaker loves to swim or he just likes that sport activity as general,like watching a TV translation of swimming sport. While “I like to swim” has only one meaning. Am not I right?

Eugene

I do not understand the difference between gerund and to + v

jassim

Thank you so much…. You´re a great teacher

Mohammed Alsoufi / Yemen

What do we need after ‘instead of’? Sometimes I have seen a gerund, sometimes an infinitive.

Bart

Ronnie,
Thank you very much for the lesson. My question is whether it is possible to use articles before a gerund.

evgeniya28

Thanks alot

nana2013

you are an excellent teacher so Ilove you very much

nahedhanem

thank you, but fot this sentance
I don’t mind working, can I say I don’t mind to work?

chabah

Hi Ronnie,

I was told there are certain rules I should follow. Can I use an infinitive when I want to talk about considering something? Am I supposed to say “I am considering to move” or “I am considering moving”? I think the first sentence is incorrect.
Thanks a lot.
Jirka

jirka

it’s not change in meaning

vothanhtu89

Do you say there is no difference : I stopped smoking or I stop to smoke???

Noémi

Hey! YOU + ARE = you’re a good teacher. Thanks for your humor :) It makes watching fun. Can you please explain this to me: He is going swimming.
Is ‘swimming’ a verb or a gerund in this case?
thanks,
English confuses me sometimes!

Hi. Could I say: I LIKE TO GO SWIMMING?

claudiosantos418

hi… you did say in your video that we can’t use them both together in a sentence… what if i’d say ” i like to swim but i don’t like swimming “. please enlighten us more about when and where to use the gerund and infinitive in a sentence…

jeirzha15

Thanks, Ronnie! Can I say, “Since it was raining, I didn’t go out”.

shans

Teacher. Is ther no difference?
She stopped to smoke.
She stopped smoking.
I have learned that it is different for a long time.
And “Do you mind opening the documents for the presentation?”
“Do you mind to open the documents for the presentation?”
I think a second sentence is wrong.
Is it correct?

foreverjong2

hi Ronnie,
thank you very much indeed for your lessons, thay are so good for me.
but i am confused with this lesson, you said” that snowboard is anoun” but you wrote i like to snowboard i think we can say : i like to go snowboard,
which one is correct?

fatima

my teacher taught me that when we use “love like hate etc” we always have to use gerund. But I believe YOU because you’re a native speaker so thank you so much!!

JonathanOlea

thank you so much for these lessons,I’m greatful. But teacher what about this sentence : I try to avoid argving?

Mirlinda

I’d have a big problem learning gerunds because in my native language would be wrong start a sentence with it. Thank you for the explanation.

Ana Cowan

Thanks Ronnie I adore learning on EngVid, and do my best to practise the quizzes.

zahid76

Hi Ronnie i have seen Alex teaching gerunds and infinitives it was great lesson but now you have made things easier for me .kind of examples you give while teaching is just amazing ,do you really prep for that or it just come out naturally.

airtel872

I wanna ask, is it true? “The nature has started damaging.” and what the differences with? “the nature has damaged” I mean the meaning both of them.
Thank ronnie, you’re awesome:)

Purwo

Thank you Ronnie very much. when I am listening your lessons I am getting it very well

Mariam Grigoryan

Hi Ronnie, I love your videos, I want to know the difference between IF and WHETHER. Thank youuuuu!!!

J01M4R

Hi Ronnie, thank you very much for your lesson. I understand that both forms (using gerunds with ing or using infinitives after verbs that express like or dislike are both correct and both mean exactly the same thing. So we can say that I LIKE GOING TO THE BEACH = I LIKE TO GO TO THE BEACH. Both are correct and mean exactly the same thing. However, if we use the verb ENJOY, can we still use both gerund or infintive? I am sure that I ENJOY PLAYING THE PIANO is correct. But, can I also say I ENJOY TO PLAY THE PIANO? Would that be correct too? Thank you in advance for your explantion, time and cooperation. Love and kisses from Spain.

DERTACO

hi Roonie, first of all I want to thank you because you make english being so easy by your way in teaching. But I’ve one trouble here.
I’ve ever seen a sentence on a formal letter writen like this “I look forward to hearing from you.” Based on your replay to @abbas comment, you said that it’s an idiom, but in Emmas’s video titled “Writing Letter: Formal vs Informal” she taught that you cann’t use idiom in writing formal letter.
It is confused me, please explain this more clearly to me.

Vinzen

excellent explanation

LearnerRec

thanks ronnie, you really help me learn in english

Ahmad Arief

Thanks Ronnie, now i understand. ^__^

Dliss

Hi Ronnie, I love your classes, I have learned so much. But I have a doubt, I have gone to english class and there are a teacher who taught us that there are differences between gerunds and infinitives, he say: gerunds is for used when actions are real, concrete or completed, and infinitives is for used when actions are unreal, abstract, or future.

So when I listened to you, when you say that there aren´t differences, I´m too confused. I hope that you resolve my doubt. Thanks

Hi! Ronnie, your lessons are brilliant! You are so cool!
Can you help me! I understood a topic. But there is a list of the most comman verbs that are usually followed by the gerund (keep, avoid, deny itc.) and the list of the most comman verbs that are usually followed by ‘to’ and the infinitive (agree, ask, decide etc.). The question is: can I use this verbs in both situation as the gerund and as the infinitive? Or must I learn them by heart?

sambamaniya

    You must learn them by heart unforrtunately

chiaracico

Hello Ma’am,
Can we use Gerund after TO ???

coz in your video you taught me :-
(To + Base Verb) = Gerund

And my old teacher told me :
You should never use Gerun After TO.
If you need to fix any preposition, use of, not TO.

BUT,

Today i read in a book,
With a vew to + Gerund is correct, even in Cambridge Dictionary I found an example :
(with a view to doing sth : with the aim of doing something)
These measures have been taken “with a view to increasing” the company’s profits.

How it is correct ???

And how can we identify if we have to use Gerund after TO ?

(Thanks in advanced its my first ever visit to this site and first ever quer asked here.)

Ayushjoshi92

    There is different use of to dear friend. Ronnie told the infinitive to. For example, I want to study English. In here to is infinitive to, but in English we have preposition to and after this one we can use gerund. For example, I look forrward to meeting you soon. In here to is preposition like for, by, on, at etc. and after the prreposition we use gerund only. I hope ı can explain clearly.

    BERKO92

Was good, know I can understand the difference between gerund and infinitive.

I like swimming, because it is a good exercise.

I like to swim, because it good.

Thanks a million.

jjhenao

My grammar teacher said that like+Ving is for habitual and like+to infinitive for momentary things. It is correct? If it is correct can we apply this to hate, continue and other verbs?

Thank you so much, Ronnie for an outstanding class again! I had some problem regarding “Gerund and Participle.” I have got everything about Gerund and Infinitive through your in this video. Hoping to get the video about “Participle” soon.

Roonie, I searched for a video about Participle. I found some videos but failed to clear my idea properly. Have you any video about Participle? If YES, then please help me providing the links of the video.

Thanks

minahmmas

Thank you very helpful for me.

dreamk7x

Sometimes in a sentence, one verb follows another. For example, I want to buy an electric car. The first verb is ‘want’, the second verb is ‘buy’.

In sentences like this, there are different possible patterns. For example:

(a) I want to buy an electric car.

(b) I hate driving.

In sentence A, the first verb is followed by an infinitive.

In sentence B, the first verb is followed by a gerund (-ing) form.

The verb patterns are dependent upon the first verb. There are several different types of pattern. When you learn a new verb, you need to learn the verb pattern. Unfortunately, some verbs have more than one possible pattern! Sometimes, if a verb has two patterns, each pattern can have a different meaning or use.

Your song is the best. I will sing it every day.

Is the above sentence correct? Every day is present tense. Can we use it with WILL?

kj2008

LOVE is a uncountable noun…
So correct answer should be ” Balter love to dance or Balter love dancing”
Will you please explain me how it comes LOVES?

kaushalsankhe

    Love is a stative verb. But I still I got confused between LOVES and LOVE in a sentence

    kaushalsankhe

    Hi, we add “s” to the main verb when we are talking in third person. I think Baltar is a male name. So you can use “He”.

    Baltar loveS to dance or Baltar loves dancing.

    JorgeRIrigoyen

Hi Ronnie, good lesson but I am still confused because once I read two sentences using gerunds and infinitive forms. For example: I like to play the piano and I like playing the piano.

In this case, are both correct? Can we use them like whatever we want? or How can we decided?

JorgeRIrigoyen

Hello! Could you help me, please? If there is a question such as: “What do you like doing?” , can I use infinitive for the answer and reply: “I like to play baseball”?.. or… I must use gerund in this case and give such answer as: “I like playing baseball”?
