  • Yes, hello and welcome to this grammar lesson. Today

  • we are looking at Verb Patterns and specifically the

  • + - ING or to + infinitive patterns,

  • and in today's lesson we going to be looking

  • at verbs that take the ING form will be looking at verbs that take the to+ infinitive

  • form

  • will look at verbs take somebody + to + infinitive

  • and we'll look at verbs that the take the -ING or,

  • the to + infinitive form, okay.

  • Now let's go to the classroom. Now

  • firstly I just explain quickly that verb patterns

  • are normally when one verb is followed by another verb

  • ok? So when we have two verbs together, the structure

  • that we use is normally verb + ING

  • or verb + infinitive with 'to'

  • or sometimes without 'to', okay? Now if we look at the examples here,

  • we'll see it clearly that, for example, I enjoy

  • cooking, so, I enjoy cooking

  • -ING or. we say I forgot

  • to cook lunch, so, we can see that the verb +

  • ING or the verb + infinitive

  • okay, now let's go to part 1. Now

  • part 1 is verbs that take the -ing

  • form. When they follow another verb, okay?

  • now, the verbs that take the -ING structure

  • are: like, love

  • adore, enjoy

  • prefer, hate

  • finish

  • don't mind, can't stand

  • look forward to, okay?

  • Now, we'll see some there with an asterisk and what that means is that we

  • can sometimes use these verbs with 'to'

  • but -ING is more usual, ok?

  • So we can say I like to go or I like going

  • the more common thing is to say I like going.

  • Now let's have a look at some examples on the next page here

  • So, for example, I love fishing

  • I don't mind doing the dishes

  • I adore spending time with my family

  • and, I can't stand waiting in queues.

  • And finally

  • I look forward to meeting you again. So all these verbs here

  • we can see take the -ing structure

  • Now part 2

  • is burbs plus to plus infinity

  • now burbs

  • the take the two plus infinitives form

  • %ah agree shoes

  • yeah decide expect

  • to get hell hope

  • learn manage need

  • of a promise refuse

  • seem want would like

  • would love would pursue the and would hate

  • okay now we have a couple of the see it also with an asterisk

  • and that means that they can be used without

  • to so it didn't help can also be used without to

  • just take infinity with out to now

  • the examples that we have on this page

  • %ah I'd choose to wear a suit

  • to work I choose to wait he expects to arrive

  • on time she seems to be

  • little nervous don't forget to pick me up

  • at AP in

  • or I would love to visit in a bar a this

  • summer okay so we can see the structure i'd shoes

  • the to Wasilla two-plus infinitive

  • and then what it was it whatever else so I choose to wear

  • suit to now part 3

  • is the plus somebody plus two plus infinity

  • night now the difference between the ones that we just saw is that we put

  • somebody whether it's he she you me

  • all or whatever in between

  • okay now as we can see here the burbs to take this structure

  • summer them a similar to the last ones as well so don't be surprised if you see

  • some birds

  • repeated so for example advise

  • allow I ask a

  • encourage expect

  • help need invite

  • order remind tale

  • want warn would like

  • would love would prefer to

  • would hate now

  • as I said some of those that were repeated so let's have a look at some of

  • the examples here

  • he advised me to stay at home

  • will you allow me to introduce myself

  • we invited them to the party

  • and she told me to be quiet and I would hate

  • you to get lost okay so we can see that taking the same structure

  • with putting somebody in between

  • he advised me he will you allow

  • me we invited name take cetera

  • ok I said those birds that we saw before take these

  • particular structure now pop for

  • is birds that take the ING all

  • the two plus infinity okay now

  • the urge to take these with no change in me

  • now this means that you can use begin you can use

  • stopped well you can use continue with either

  • ING or two plus infinity with no change in me

  • alright so for example E

  • again to rain or eat again rainy

  • it started to rain or it started

  • raining it continued to rain

  • it continued raining is no changing meaning

  • however if we look at these next birds do have a change

  • meaning now what this means is that if we use

  • remember stalled or try

  • okay the meaning changes

  • according to weather we have been ING a way that we have a two plus infinity

  • now to explain this a little bit out let's have a look at some examples

  • sought I remember buying

  • chocolate I have a memory applying chocolate okay

  • I have a memory applying chocolate that if I say

  • I remembered to buy some chocolate it means that I reminded myself

  • so there's a difference in meaning okay between

  • remember buying and remembered to buy

  • now he will see the other the with the examples

  • with the change meaning stop for example I stopped

  • eating chocolate idoney chocolate anymore a guy I have completely stopped

  • eating chocolate I no longer eat it

  • that if I say I stopped to eat some chocolate

  • it means that I was doing something like giving this class

  • and I stopped giving the class and I

  • ate some chocolate okay so I stopped

  • class to eat some chocolate to activities

  • the first one idoney chocolate anymore

  • second one is that I was doing something and I stopped at and I did something

  • else

  • so I stopped to E some chocolate

  • and with this last the try

  • I tried to call his office but the line was busy
