I stopped to talkor
I stopped talking? What is the difference in meaning? In this lesson, we will look at the verb “to stop” and when it should be followed by a gerund or an infinitive. The meaning of “I stopped to smoke” and “I stopped smoking” is very different. Watch this video and find out what the difference is.
It is nice . Thanks
thanks teacher… really useful lesson :)
I have stopped 2 watch a new lesson on engvid
thank you so much ,it’s great work
Thank you dear Emma
You help so much!!!
Awesome! Voglio piú lessons like that! Ciao cara!
Thanks for this video.
Is shall an outdated word? I don’t remember where,but in one video Ronnie says shall’s an outdated word? Is using shall shows us a person who dwells in the ancient era?
Between,are there any grammatical mistakes in the para i have typed above?
HI! Shall I help you ?
I’ll take the liberty to do so.
I learned in a book that the word “shall” is still used when you want to ask someone’s opinion about “If or not” you should do something. Ex: Shall I close the windows? Shall we talk in private ?
And in your paragraph, you may have made some little mistakes.
I’m not sure but I’ll put in angle quotes what I would write instead.
Is shall an outdated word? I don’t remember where,but in “a” video Ronnie says shall’s an outdated word”.” “Does” using “the word “shall “show” us “that” a person “” “lives in an acient age” ?
“Meanwhile”, are there any grammatical mistakes in the paragraph “that” “I” have typed above?
Using the phrase “dwells in the ancient era?” sounds a little old-school. ^^
I hope I’ve been of some help.
hiya,, I just want to quote one thing , when he said ^in one video Ronnie says^
you correct to ^ in a video Ronnie says ^ ,typically both of these sentence are proper!!
“a” and “an” are used with singular indefinite Noun also with “one” it work the same as “a” .
So there is no mistaken here, methinks .
“Shall” is more British and formal. Americans, actually, do not want to use it. Instead of it, they use “should”, and this is fine to me. I don’t use “shall” either. :)
hi this was an awesome vedio…i enjoyed a lot
I never thought I needed to know that:D
Thank you very much Emma !!!!! I needed it. Thanks for the easy way to understand it. I am german and I visit engVid every day :-) It´s the best side I´ve found to improve my english!!!!! Thanks to all teacher!!

Thank you, Emma! It’s was easy with you ;-)
Thank you so much for the instructions,showing how to use the verb in the appropriate time.
It’s very interesting and easy to understand. I stopped to watch this lesson and I stopped watching another sites:-)
thanks for this example
Thank you,you likes me when you smile
Thank you madam Emma
You are an incredibly great teacher. I was seeing the facebook but i stopped to see this vid.
Hi Emma, thank you very much for the helpful video. I have just one more question. Let’s suppose that I ‘m in a car with a friend and he light up a cigarette. I want him to quit smoking (just for the period whilst we are in the car and not “forever”) , what should I say: “Can you stop smoking please ?” ? and If on the contrary I would like to ask (to my best friend for example) to stop “forever” to smoke, what should I say in that case ? Thank you very much . Bye, Andrea from Milan
if i were you i would say could you please stop smoking while driving.
“Please do not smoke in the car.”
or if it’s your friend
“Non fumare nella macchina altrimenti ti lascio a piedi!” xD ahahaha
Hahaha ! …grande wolverine ! pretty good idea
Tks Emma. Another great lesson!
you are nice.
thank you emma
but i have a quastion about the same point but with the verb want is it the same case or different i want to ask or i want asking
and thank you again
Emma, I’m in love ;)
Thank you very much
10/10 thank you Emma. I’ll never stop to watch your lessons. A virtual flower for you. :-)
If I may,
I think you mean I’ll never stop watching your videos.
Is that correct guys ?
You are right Carlos!
You’re the best teacher!!!
I love you!
Thank you, Emma. I stopped making mistakes. :-)Probably.:-) Your lesson is great.
Thank you, Emma. I stopped making mistakes. :-)Probably.:-)
Sorry, I didn´t stop making mistakes, I have send this comment twice. :-)
Thank you very much!!!
Your lessons are great!!!
I stopped snuggling into my charming wife to do this lesson.
I stopped to watch video lesson. Thanks Teacher Emma.
If I may,
I think you should write : I stopped to watch THE video lesson.
But if I’m not mistaken, you meant :
I’ve just finished watching the video.
In this case we use watching because there’s “just” and “the”
I’m taking the opportunity to practise and share.
right,, you used THE , because It used with definite noun which is ” Emma`s lesson” , so your sentence it more accurate than
what he said , ^_^
. I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired.
I chose ( to swim ) but it was wrong , why ?
I had many things to do this morning but I stopped to see your lesson and I liked it very much.
Great lesson, I learned something this evening thanks to you.
Very interesting and helpful plus very clear explanation, thank you very much Emma
Thank you teacher for interesting and useful lesson!
Keep it up!
Fellows, help me to improve my low English-speaking skills.
Here is my Skype ID – jevgeniikyrychyk.
Estupendo video animo que no decaiga los animos.
In my opinion an easier explanation exist.
You can “to” replace with “in order to”.
I stopped in order to do something, for instance: to smoke.
A gerund works likewise a noun.
Smoking is a bad habit then I stopped smoking.
What do you think about it?
BTW 10 out of 10
Smoking isn’t so bad as people say. I’m smoking, and I like it. I really like to smoke sometimes. Why should this be wrong? xD
keep smoking there’s nothing wrong with it, but yellow teeth 4 sure.
I have really white and healthy teeth. Why? because I brush my teeth twice a day. Besides, I go regularly to a dentist even if I don’t have any problems with my teeth. I know, I’m a very weird smoker… xD
I see, have a nice weekend Morfik.
Thanks Emma…. you’re nice …. a useful lesson
why is it “stop to eat meat”, he s now a vegetarian, no more eating meat, so ?
Thank you Emma!
It was a very useful lesson.
You are a really great teacher!
Very well explained! Thank you Emma!
i love engvid so much. it’s help me to improve my grammar and the vdo class it’s seem better than my live class at school.
Thank you, I got 100 !!
Nice class. Anyway I have doubts about other verbs differnt of to stop. I would like that someone helps me. Thanks.
You are load and clear as usual,

I LIKE ENGVID AND FELL GOOD FOR STUDYING ENGLISH..THANKS VERY MUCH……………
Hi Emma! good lesson 9 out of 10 . I have studied verb patterns recently, but I forgot some rules with remember, try and so on. Hope you teach them next time . Thank you indeed.
Thank you very much!!!
It was a wonderful lesson!!! I remember it :D again thanks alot Emma!!!
Thank you for the lesson. Can you review the part where you explained “I stopped to smoke” sentence? It is confused. Probably the action 1 should be smoke, then stop and then anything else, for example – eat. Otherwise the sentence should be I stoped to walk.
In your quiz you have following question:
I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired. The correct answer is swimming. Why? I don’t stop swimming forever. It is just a one time action.
The same problem with question: If you are lost, stop _____________ directions.
Why ‘to get’ a right one? It is recommendation don’t ask directions ever.
Please, give your advise how to differentiate these situations.
I think, I stopped to swim would correct if the sentence would have been “I stopped to swim at the swimming pool because i was too tired ” instead of “in the pool”.
You were tired, so you stopped swimming and went out the water, or pool, lake, or whatever you were swimming in xD — you simply stopped the activity. Otherwise you would drown. xD
The second one — try to think about “and” when you want to use an infinitive.
“If you are lost, stop and get directions.”
If you try to use “getting” — “If you are lost, stop and getting directions.” — and this sounds awkward. xD
It makes a sense! Thanks!
It makes a sense. Thank you!
you know , I`ve a doubt about this answer !!
“I stopped to swim in the pool because I was too tired” . methinks its proper , it simply means that I was tried and exhausted, therefore I stopped and get in to the warm water in the pool to relax .^^
Don’t try this at home, especially, when you are alone. xD
Very funny , I will never be alone for sure I will have companionship . “you know what I mean “. Anyhow, I guess in this meaning the sentence will be correct .
I agree with you.
It was the one incorrect answer of mine in this quiz. However, I think, both answers are correct.
Thanks Emma. From your good lesson.
Thank you Emma!! could you give me explanation on qeustion 10 why we are using gerund? if you get chance…
Emmaaaaaaaa Thank you
I didn’t realy know what is the diffrence, but now I got 10/10. Thanks again
Ema you have displayed a good lesson, so I understand well ,,, thank
Thanks Emma for this video
Hi! Could anybody of Engvid teachers do a lesson about differences in making questions about subject.
It is really good site，You are great！
What’s about other verbs?
Is there any difference between the following sentences?
1. I tried to help my sister.
2. I tried helping my sister.
I would use “tried to help”, but I can’t give you any info about why. I’ve just heard this form many times. I don’t know if “tried helping” is correct.
There are, however, verbs that you can use both with infinitives and gerunds, for example “like”: “I like to swim.” and “I like swimming.”
But there are also verbs that require only an infinitive or a gerund, and choosing the second one is wrong. I’m still working on it, and I think that this issue is a little bit complicated and more like prepositions — you have to spend years on it in order to learn how to use verb + gerund or infinitive properly. xD
if u want to use verb tired, u can use like this. I tired of helping her.
Today was a great day,I stopped to listen your wonderful lesson!!
Thank you !
I love your teaching. I’ve easily understood this lesson, but I’ve got a question for you.
I came across a sentence, in my student book at evening classes, where the verb “like” wasn’t used placing the -ing form after it, but the infinitive. Here’s the sentence:
“John likes to spend his time on holiday looking at old churches.”
I can’t find a “purpose infinitive” in that sentence, like you explained about the verb “stop”.
Could you help me to understand, please?
Thanks a lot,
hi emma thank you so much.. :) good information..
thank you so Much
Thank you Emma , I used to make mistakes but I stopped making mistakes now , once again thanks a lot .
that was seriously great lesson. Well done.. I understand clearly. Thank you.
Hi, Emma. Thanks a lot for your explanations,
I’ve got a question about stop + smoke.
– I stopped smoking.
a) I was smoking a cigarette and I finished doing it because I entered into a closed place.
b) I used to be a regular smoker, and in some point of my life I gave it up. (I didn’t smoke anymore).
What’s the meaning of this sentence?
It depends. xD
“I stopped smoking.” — This sentence is very short and there is no time specified. So, if there were, for instance, “I stopped smoking two years ago.”, this would be B answer because you are talking about a specific moment of the past. But you should change “(I didn’t smoke anymore).” to “(I don’t smoke anymore).”
It also could mean the option A. For example: “I stopped smoking and entered the room”. But if it comes about the A answer, I would rather say “I’ve just stopped smoking” — this means that the cigarette, probably is still smouldering in a ashtray.
So, as you can see it requires a better insight in the situation that you want to describe.
Thank you very much!
I figured out something similar, but I was not sure about it.
I’m Spanish, and we have two different verbs to express this idea:
– Parar de fumar (stop, but continue in the future).
– Dejar de fumar (stop, and don’t do it anymore).
There is one more thing about that.
“I’ve stopped smoking.” — This is definitely B answer because in case of perfect tenses, there is no need to give a specific time of an action. So, you’ve stopped smoking, but no one knows when exactly. xD
thank u soooooooooo mush for this lession
hi Emma it s so helpful to meet you through your lessons you are gorgious. could you tell as about give up smoking and stop smoking what s is the diffirence between both structure ? regards
i start being in love with your way to teach i ll finish by loving you person
Thank´s Emma, this lesson was a really good tip! :-)
Emma, this is a great lesson. I really didn´t know how to express myself in this case. But I still have doubts about infinitive vs gerund. In those cases as in “like VERB+ing”, or “go VERB+ing”, do they(infinitive and gerund)have the same meaning in this case? I’m waiting your answer.
Thank you so much :)
Thank u. go on….
Thank you teacher!
thnks emma u are agreat teacher
Thank you teacher
Great lesson again!
Greetings from Brazil!!!!!
Thanking for your kind assistance..
thank u Emma. Great
Or, Thank you in english!
Nice class. Thank you, Emma.
Oh, thank you Emma.
I misunderstood that it was similar to the usage of “help ving” and ‘help to v”.
This lesson is very useful, since ‘stop ving” and “stop to v” have totally different meanings.
I got 10 correct out of 10, your lessons are amazing, thanks Emma
execellent it is prety easy to understand your lesson i love this page thanks “Emma”
thanks a lot for a wonderful explanation. Good luck to you!
Amazing!… 10 to 10!!.. your lessons are perfects!.. thank you Emma!! ;0)
Thank you. It is helpful.
very nice sugestion and one more great lesson.
Thank you a lot.
How about preparing a lesson on spoken English?
Thanks a lot
Beautiful Emma, it’s amazing how clear your explanation is. Thank you very much for your lesson. I got 100!
Excellent job Emma!Thank you very much!
Hi Emma How you read this fraction 1/12.5? Thankyou
thank you so much
Thanks a lot. It’s was very useful for me
thanks for the Video.
it’s was really beneficial.
Is this sentence correct,, This picture is a little bit too much black ”
I would use:
“This picture is a little bit black”
“This picture is a little bit too black”
“This picture is a little bit much too black”
Pay attention to the third one “much too” not “too much”.
. I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired.
I chose ( to swim ) but it was wrong , why ?
When you are tired you won’t go to swim . It’s all about the context , so we should put SWIMMING . ; )
I think, HBarhi, you are absolutely right.
In this case, meaning depends on the context.
As to me, I have much work, and at the end of the day I decided to relax and take some sport.
So I stopped and go to a swimming pool. Good idea, by the way.
So, I think, both answers are correct.
Hello Mohammed. I had the same problem. The correct answer is swimming. If “you stopped to swim” means you did something before to swim. But, in the sentence, “you stopped swimming” because you’re too tired to keep swimming. I hope you have understood me. Regards from Spain.
Thanks a lot emma that lesson was so useful
thanks for your help and suport

Emma you are a wonderful teacher .Your explanations are very clear and simple.
Is it correct to say that in the sentence stopped + infinitive there is a reason why we stopped with the gerand it describes a situation. Thank you.
Dear Mrs. Emma,i think you are a very good teacher.It is so clear that you love teaching and taking care of students.I have understood this from by the way you’re speaking.So thank you very much…:)))
Thanks Emma for this wonderful lesson.

Thank you so much Emma, I think this lesson very important for we and you told very well :)
Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaank u Emma
Thank you very much Emma! It helped me.
I had a mistake at 9. I thought someone is swimming in the pool and after a moment he stopped to swim because he was too tired.
In that case, how I have to say?

Thank you Emman.
See you in next sections!!
Thank you . I wanna ask you a question What’s the difference between come back , come along come out and come over If you have time to explain it to me I would be so delighted And thanks again
That is a great lesson, very useful to practice in a informal conversation and in academic life. ;D ..
In fact I thought the two sentences have the same meaning but due to ur help i understood it , thank you Emma .
One thing about the Nineth sentence (I stopped swimming Because I was tired) he was tired while swimming then he decided to stop fr while ,why u didn’t use I stopped to swim?
Thank u again
Thank you Emma. Please teach us “Does not make sense” and “Make(s) sense”. When will we use it? What is the difference between it?
What is the different between following:
I stopped to smoke
I stopped for smoking
Hi,how are you?
you are a great teacher
I like your lesson
Thank you so much.
Thank you for your comment sovannaranou!
Thank you very much = )
I really want to thank you for all of your lesson!
Thank you for explaining!
Hello Emma! I’m Charles from Venezuela, thank you so much. I was a great lesson and now I understand clear when someone say to me “I stopped smoking” jejeje. I want to study english in canada in order to get my toelf certificated and I’d like to know you and all of the ENGVID team too. God Bless You.
jejeje I made a mistake. “It was a great lesson”. If I made another one, please tell me. Thanks
yes Thank you i stopped here to learn English
Hello Emma. I’ve done the quiz and I have a question for you. The sentence “I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired.” According to quiz, the correct answer is “swimming” but I think is “to swim” because you stop to swim when you are tired. You don’t stop to swim forever! I would like to know your opinion about this sentence. Thank you and regards from Spain.
Hello again. I found out what was my mistake. In fact the correct answer is “swimming” because if you stop to swim means that before to swim, you were doing something different like walking, eating, etc. In that sentence, the meaning is different. You stopped swimming because you’re tired. Now, I understood the sentence. I hope you understand my explanation because I’m a beginner student and I don’t know if my grammar is correct. Newly, thank you and regards from Spain.
It’s very helpful thanks a lot ^_^
I enjoyed the lesson, I’m gratefully.
Thanks a lot :D
i can understand everything
thank you very much
Emma .. YOUR lessons are really amazing .thanks a lot for that great job.. but i see that you focused on the verb (stop) only .. can’t we use other verbs in the same way like: (stand) .. so i can say( I stood up to carry the box) 1- sit 2- stand 3- carry .and ( i stood up carrying the box)1- carry 2- stand.
Gerunds (verb + ing) and infinitives (to + verb) are painful for most students to learn because you have to memorize the rule for each verb.
I focused on the verb “stop” in this video because it is one of the most confusing ones.
Here is a video that may help you with other verbs:
Thanks a lot!
may be .. a day…finally I will be learn English
I really like what you are doing here. Your work is of the greatest help to the teacher and student. I really enjoy it! I wish you every success.
Very nice Ema… thank you!
thank thank thank. i lake you ,…………………..
Thank you so much . Emma
thankes for you
hii ! Emma
ı think so… ı stopped learning this subject.. thank you very much indeed..
Smply Awesome.. fnly i learnd Infitive and Gernd..
Tks 2 much,
thank you Emma
I have a question for you. Is there any difference between the following senteces?
I decided to ask for directions.
I decided asking for directions.
“I decided to ask for directions” is correct. The verb “decide” is followed by to + verb.
Here are some more examples:
I decided to buy some ice cream.
I decided to move to Las Vegas.
I decided to marry my best friend.
very very very thanks Emma.
it was very easy because of your help thank you and keep going. I have been in USA for two years and I never speak English before thank u again
Hi everybody! I took the quiz which is about infinitive and gerund but I don’t understand clearly.
Who wants to explain to me ;
9. I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired.
I clicked on to swim but it is not true. I thought that If I can take a rest , I will continue on. I am so tired ok but it is not meaning of give up.
In my opinion swim need more energy and makes somebody feel tired, so the right answer is ” swimming” . I think the first action is the cause of second action :). CMIIW
hi,hallelujah.ıf you are tired,you don’t want to swim.you stop swimming in the pool .ın your opinion is that ı stopped to swim in the pool because ı was too tired.this means that (for example) you want to swim in the pool but you are reading book.then, you want to swim in the pool.you give up reading book in order to swimming in the pool.I hope you understand my writing.
I got it , thanks ;)
Many students seemed to have problems with this question. These guys answered it well! Thank you!
Why both answers cannot be correct?
It depends on…
… on a specific situation, i.e. a context, doesn’t it?
Thanks a lot for your lessons.
Emma, I can’t stop writing the free flow of my thoughts;) sorry for that.
1. I stopped swimming in the pool because I was too tired to do anything.
2. I stopped to swim in the pool because I was too tired and wanted to relax.
I stopped swimming as I got tired of that.
I stopped swimming in the pool. this is correct
waaw, it’s very clear :). im very appreciate for the teacher, good job.
This is a good lesson. For me It has been some difficult.
I do not undestand what is the exactly meaning of these sentences:
“I stopped to smoke” (stop to smoke for one moment?)
“I stopped smoking” (the meaning is: To quit to Smoke?
I will appreciate your attention.
“I stopped to smoke” means “I stopped doing something to have a smoke”, and “I stopped smoking” does “I quit (gave up) smoking”=)
I stopped to smoke means I was doing something else (maybe walking), and I stopped what I was doing to light up a cigarette. In this example, I am smoking.
I stopped smoking means I quit smoking or I stopped the action of smoking. In this example, I am not smoking.
You are the best!!!
thank you Emma
Thanks a lot
my frengy emma, thankiu very nach.
10 correct out of 10 – Thomas from Poland thx
i find everything interesting here..
i thought they have same meaning, thank you emma
must say thanks.
I stopped —— in the pool because i was so tired.
swimming /to swim
i thought (to swim) is the right answer. but tern out (swimming) is the correct answer. I am puzzled!!
Hi … Pervert?
Thanks for your question!
The clue in this sentence is “because I was so tired”. Swimming involves a lot of work, so if someone gets tired, they would probably stop swimming and rest.
Alternatively, I could make a sentence like “It was hot, so I stopped to swim in the pool.” In this case, because it’s hot, I stop what I’m doing and start swimming in order to cool down.
Hi emma you do not know how much you help me with this topic, I was asking many teachers, friends but they can not explain me..You are an angel for people like me…. Thank you so much

Dear Teacher Emma,
This lesson is really perfect. Well this type of lessons will never have plenty of entries. But they are necessary for students. You are precise in explanations and you adress to learners who at a lower level and at the higher level of English.
I would appreciate if you continue more lessons with ing and to verb form.
It would be great if you make a lesson comparing past form of must verb in particular:
I needn’t have done
I didn’t have to do
And so on
Thanks for this video Emma.
Thank you Emma.
Thank you young lady for your time.
