This is a useful lesson because english learners use to confuse where to use gerund and infinitive forms, I just wrote down those tips, millions thanks Alex.

1) Unfortunately, our Russian-speaking teachers, who taught us English at school, said that need is one of the modal verbs. But need is commonly used as the main verb. The principle is that we must use the particle “to” between two verbs.
2) The Gerund combines the features of a noun and a verb. So we must use the Gerund as the object of a sentence following a verb.
3) The Subject of the sentence “Playing badminton is fun” looks like a noun, because, like a noun, it answers the question “what?”. That’s why we use the Gerund in this sentence.
Are these principles correct?

    In general, yes, though for point #2, just remember that gerunds can be more than the objects of verbs. :) They can serve other functions, such as being the objects of prepositions, as in “I’m interested in learning more.”

    Well done overall!
