hi there my name is Emma and in today's lesson we're going to look at a very

0:07

common mistake

0:08

ESL students make we're going to look at

0:12

I when you have the verb stopped and it's followed by either an infinitive or

0:19

a German and ok so before i explain what all of this means i just like to thank

0:24

say thank you to charles from Venezuela for suggesting this of video on facebook

0:30

ok so shadow to Charles alright so let's get started so first of all what is an

0:36

infinitive

0:37

well we're talking about when we have two verbs

0:40

so we have a verb 1 ok we have a second verb verb to we have a subject I and

0:54

then we have to

0:57

so if you were thinking of English as a mathematical formula

1:02

it would be subject plus the first verb in this case stopped plus 2 plus the

1:10

second verb

1:11

ok so this is what is known as the infinitive now down here i have what's

1:17

known as a gerund

1:19

so a gerund is we have the subject

1:23

we have the first verb just like above and we have a second verb but what

1:30

you'll notice first of all there's no -

1:32

and secondly we have ing so with gerunds and infinitives what we're talking about

1:39

is you have two verbs

1:41

sometimes a verb the first verb is followed by a second verb with ing and

1:48

sometimes it's followed with a two and a second verb

1:53

ok so we're going to look at just one verb in this video

1:58

stop

2:01

because if we use the infinitive or if we use the gerund it changes the meaning

2:08

so let's get started I have a sentence here

2:11

I stopped to talk so what does this mean

2:15

well I have my friend Bob here ok now i'm just going to move over here

2:21

i'm walking down the street that's my first action i'm walking and I stopped

2:28

so first action in this case I was walking second action
