Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is less than 287. The title of today's
lesson is don't say play skating and basically when you should use verbs do,
go, or play with sports. Because most students of ESL, if they're going to make a
mistake, they're probably gonna make a mistake and use play when they should be
using do or go. All right. So anyway, let's, let's take a look at the note here.
Use do with sports that don't use any equipment. Okay.
Here are some common examples. Aerobics, so we do aerobics. We do martial
arts and that's any type of martial arts. You know, karate, Taekwondo. You do them
You might actually even be able to use practice with some of these too.
Gymnastics and again that would include different types of gymnastics as well.
yoga etc. So we use do with these sports. Sports that don't use any equipment at
all. Okay and here's some examples. She does yoga every day. Good. My grandmother
does Tai Chi every morning. Remember Tai Chi of course is also in
the martial arts category. Okay. Let's look at the next part. Use go with sports
that end in ING. Okay. So again here's some common examples. Like diving,
fishing, golfing, jogging, mountain climbing. So remember we say that we go
all these. We go diving. We go fishing. We go golfing, hiking, skiing. We go hiking. We
go skiing. We go skating. We go swimming. So any any sports where the word ends in
ING you should use go with that. Okay and let's continue. Oh, so here's some
examples. My uncle goes golfing every weekend. Yes. She goes swimming every
morning. So again use go with ING sports. Okay. Let's continue. Use play with team
sports. With team sports or any sport played with a ball. Okay.
So again here's some examples. Her brother plays basketball after school every
day. So of course that's both. It could be a team sport and it's with a ball. As a
child I used to play baseball. So again use play with sports that take a team to
play with or sports with a ball. Okay and here's some common examples where
students might have messed up. Of course with the X, this is wrong. So a student
might say we do play skating sometimes. No. Of course it's ING, so you should say,
we do go skating sometimes. All right, good. Again with the X, this is
wrong. She plays aerobics three times a week. No. She does aerobics three times a
week. Remember, this is a sport without any equipment. So you would say, you use
the verb do. Okay. Anyway, I hope it's clear. I hope you got it. I hope it was
informative. Thank you for your time. Bye- bye.
