English Grammar


verb wih ing after to !

In Doctor Donna Donovan lesson (scene 5 of 7) it's written :
"are you open to working as a staff psychologist for my company..."


Why working and not work ?
Is it a computer error or is it true ?
Thanks for your help.

  • Hello,


    'To be open to' has to be followed either by a noun or by a verb ending in '-ing'.


    Examples:


    I'm open to your idea.
    I'm open to discussing your idea.


    I'm afraid that there's no golden rule which will teach you when to use an infinitive and when to use '-ing' at the end of a verb. It's just a question of learning what sounds best.


    I hope this helps!


    Helen
