      In my view, gerunds are hard to use mainly because they can be placed in any part of a sentence; that is, they can fulfil different functions in a statement.

      Just one question Mr. Makar, what’s the function of the gerund in the following sentence? What’s the meaning of the statement?

      “I got him talking about it”

      Abosorbing lesson and of great use.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Alex .
I got 8 out of 10 . Why in question five the first answer is not correct even if the third answer is correct too ?
The preposition “to” after using the verb “lie” get me confused . I understand when being told ” you lie to me” , “to” indicates an action from the subject to the complement but when saying ” I have been lied to ” the subject doesn’t make the action why using “to” in that case .
Many thanks to you Alex and all Engvid teachers .

Very good and informative lesson! I have learnt a lot. The only thing I missed in the test was one example with active passive gerund.

panda7

    It must be active past gerund…..

    panda7

Thank you Alex.
There’s a grammar problem confuse me often.
“work from home” in this term why we use ‘from’?

Sophie

Hi, Alex. Your lessons are so interesting and informative, for advanced in the English language students. This is very good. It develops. I like being taught English in that way. Thank you.

Sergiy D

Hi teacher, Thank so much for lesson. It is so great in reminding me of gerunds as I haven’t reviewed it in quite long time. My job is also used English but sometime forget a bit and haven’t focused too deeply in grammar.:)

Great lesson. i love to learn english being told the grammar rules!
Is correct the above phrase?

Luke

    Maybe in this sentence “by” needs to be added before “being told”.

    nextstep.n

      It came to me just by sixth sense)

      nextstep.n

Thanks Alex, The exercise is diffiuclt for me so I got 6 correct out of 10, My skype is ukrit_2011 Thank you everyone having been taught me.

Ukrit

Wow ! 10/10

I can’t thank you enough !

Seddek Nadhem

I got 9 out of 10 but I discovered that one of the questions must be talked about.
That is question No. 5.
I think answer A (teaching english) which also matchs the question “we’re ….”
Therefore, the whole sentence is “we’re teaching english.”
That means that we “are helping” the students english “now.”
What do you think??, Alex.

frankchang

    And also, I am delighted to get the advanced and useful grammar our Alex teacher taught!!!

    frankchang

    Oddly both sounds correct to me. However, “We’re teaching English” seems more natural, or it is just my cold behavior towards passive voice. =p

    Albert Dan Luke

kolotusha

Hi Alex,
why in question five the first answer is not correct?

greatrob

Hi alex,

I am still having much confusion about Active and Passive Gerunds & Active and Passive infinitive. what is the difference between “being” & “to be” where both are used with +p.p. Even both meaning seem to be same.

ankii

Okay İ see you what you mean generally in this video.
But cant we say that “she hates being told what to do and she hates to be told what to do” are actually
same meanning in daily english ?

oguz

i got 7 out 10, thanks Alex, more practices and understand will be easier ;)

Manuel Monteiro

Hi Alex,
I want to thank you for your videos, they have help me a lot to review and remember several rules that I have forgotten. I am currently preparing myself to take the introduction test to become a teacher in Los Angeles for K-12, and I found some useful information where more videos can be made. I am enclosing the link for you to take a look and hopeful you can make more videos to help others learn better the English Language.
The link is from the department of Human Resources for the state of California and it’s a great tool for anyone to improve their writing: http://dhrdcap.co.la.ca.us/olt/support_info/docs/EnglishUsageGuide_20091214.pdf

Hassan Akoshli

For me, it’s hard to understand GERUNDS at all.

Hassan Shah

I’m sorry but I get confuse with the question 5. Both answers “We’re teaching English” & “We’re being taught English” seem to be right for me!

Gaiduoi

On question 2, why the answer is “stealing”, not “having stolen”? I think “she was fired”, so it must be in the past. Help me, please.

Gaiduoi

Hi Alex, I come from Indonesia. Thanks for helping me to understand gerund.

Asti Prima

Dear Alex, in your lesson about gerung you are giving the following example: I saw Jack riding a bike where riding is gerund complement. It is clear and transperant. Recently I’ve read Grammar and Vocabulary for First Certifcicate by Luke Prodromou. I’ve been really surprised when I’ve seen the same example where riding is participle. What is it gerund or participle? There is no lesson about participle in your course. I’ d like to know about participle in your course.

hi Alex thanks for this lesson really give me a bush.

Abd.lawaj

Finally! I learned about active/passive gerund! Thank you:)

Hye-jin

Its so confused to know when is in the present and past when talking about passive voice.

For example:
6) Jack’s really proud of ____________________.
a)having been chosen to represent the company.
b)choosing to represent the company.
c)having chosen to represent the company.

after a preposition could be: having+pp or having+been+pp. How to know?

Eudessilva

Hi Alex i got, 9/10, but in the 5 th, the first answer is right too, is not it? anyway i was wondering if anyone could answer this question:

Sancio

At his point, the ING form have been the most difficult grammar to learn by myself, it has a bunch of ways to be used. It can be used as a noun, before and after a preposition, there are many verbs plus ING combinations and in addition we have the rules you introduced us, the ones I am completely thankful for.

NOA1991

hi Alex

galinka88

Alex made this confusing grammar , easy . Thank you Alex :)

Parisa-D

Hi, Alex. Thanks for the lesson, I find it very useful. But I have some doubt about Active Past gerund construction. I want to compose a sentence like this: “Having worked in IT for the last 5 years, I’ve got a vast experience in smth…”. Is it correct? I want to show that I’m still working in this sphere. Your examples of using active past gerund express completness of action, dont’t they? Can APG be implied in such context instead of regular present perfect continuous construction? Thank you!

Serge8938

Thank you for the great lesson, Alex. I think I need to watch your previous lesson, ‘common verbs followed by gerunds’. See you there!

Hiroki.Y

9/10. Thanks teacher . One of the best lessons !

Soei

Wow, That is the best video I have seen here so far. Thanks.

In other words
Never have I seen such a commendable video here!

dimanne

Please help me. I have some trouble grammar due to reading cnn news I found something in context that I don’t understand. It said that “the administration is close to completing a revised executive order on immigration” Close is have to follow by gerund all the time ? I always understand that close is followed by verb infinitive.
