How to use verb patterns (verb + second verb) correctly: An introduction
See these notes and examples (PDF format) for an introduction to how to use the gerund and infinitive correctly.
Example: ‘They told me they would like to see more of the city, one weekend.’
For intermediate students, the next example shows how using the gerund (to…) vs. the infinitive (-ing) has different meanings:
‘I was walking down the road and stopped to talk to my friend.’
‘Jack and Jill argued and stopped talking to each other for four days.’
