    Verbs + ing


    Gerunds

     

    • Gerunds are formed like the present participle by adding ing to the infinitive.
    • Gerund is a verb used as a noun(I like dancing).
    • And these are some verbs which are followed by gerunds(hate,like,avoid,finish ,suggest,mind,keep(meaning continue),enjoy,risk,stop.)
    • Some prepositions are followed by gerunds:be keen on,be fond of (like),be good at,be interested in ,be afraid of, a method/way of,insist on,accuse  someone of,be used to.

    be used to +gerund/noun should not be confused with used to + infinitive,which describes a past habit._I used to smoke.(but I don't any more).
