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Is shall an outdated word? I don’t remember where,but in one video Ronnie says shall’s an outdated word?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?

Profile photo of poongkundran poongkundran

    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    Is shall an outdated word? I don’t remember where,but in “a” video Ronnie says shall’s an outdated word”.”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.
    Cheers !

      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 .

      Profile photo of hisham77 hisham77

    “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 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.

    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”

Martin

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

Hi 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.

Boris

Hi Emma,

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.

Profile photo of lastdruid lastdruid

    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”.

    Profile photo of niku1987 niku1987

    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

      Boris

      It makes a sense. Thank you!

      Profile photo of lastdruid lastdruid

      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 .^^

      Profile photo of hisham77 hisham77

        Don’t try this at home, especially, when you are alone. xD

        Profile photo of morfik morfik

          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 .

          Profile photo of hisham77 hisham77

          I agree with you.
          It was the one incorrect answer of mine in this quiz. However, I think, both answers are correct.

sherry

Great lesson!

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.

Shay

    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.

Hello Emma.
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,
Renato

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?
Thanks!

ruben

    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.

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

      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).

      ruben

        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

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.

Is this sentence correct,, This picture is a little bit too much black ”

taha

    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”.

this example
. I stopped ___________ in the pool because I was too tired.

to swim
swimming

I chose ( to swim ) but it was wrong , why ?

Mohammed

    When you are tired you won’t go to swim . It’s all about the context , so we should put SWIMMING . ; )

    Profile photo of HBarhi HBarhi

      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.

      Profile photo of urs68 urs68

    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.

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.

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.

JOODY

    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:

Hi 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.
Thanks, Richard.

Richard

    “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.

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.
Help please
Thanks.

Profile photo of hallelujah hallelujah

    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

    Profile photo of aisyara aisyara

    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.

          2. I stopped to swim in the pool because I was too tired and wanted to relax.

Dear Emma:
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.

learner

    “I stopped to smoke” means “I stopped doing something to have a smoke”, and “I stopped smoking” does “I quit (gave up) smoking”=)

    Vadik

      Exactly.

      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.

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!!

pervert

    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.

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
Best wishes,

Very clear, thank you. The important point is the time lapse between “I stopped” and “to smoke” : it is easier to understand with it.
Many thanks.

Hi Emma
A nice and useful lesson as usual, where in eight minutes you focus the core of the two different meanings.
You are a great teacher
Cheers

10/10! Wonderful! I’m obese when I started smoking, drinking, and eating much every day. I stopped smoking in 2016 and stoped to keeping fit. Now I feel my body more better than before.

I used to drinking coffee a lot. Now I stoped drinking coffee because I have my heart problem.
I was walking on the street and I stoped to look some handsome guy in front of me. LOL

Thank you, Emma, for this explanation, it´s very important to understand the difference between infinitive and ing form after verb to stop.
