    Go on - regret to do sth - doing sth


    Go on doing sth

     

     

    You continue doing the same thing.

    Example:

    I had already eaten 5 apples but I still went on eating more apples, until finally, I had to vomit.

     

    Go on to do sth

    You continue doing sth but something new.

    Example:

    First I will tell you something about the vitamines contained in a beetroot, then I will go on to tell you something about the vitamines in other vegetables.

     

    Regret to do sth
