English Grammar


Which verb needs infinitive? which needs gerundive?

Is it a list to learn for know after what verb we have to use the infinitive or the gerundive?
like: I imagine swimming / I learn to swim.

Or a general rule according to the verb's meaning?
Thanks

  • Hi JPierre
    Yes, in fact you can have a list of verbs .
    Some are with ING ending and others infinitive form.
    Some have both of them depending on the meaning ok for the sentence.
    Have a look on anglais facile.com. you can freely access to thus site without registration. It s easy and you can practise exercises.
    Good job.
