What are verb patterns in English?
Verb patterns in English refer to the structure that some sentences have, e.g. REMEMBER TO DO or REMEMBER DOING something. In many cases, the verb pattern can change the meaning, so it’s important to learn common verb patterns in English.
What is the difference between gerunds and present participles in English?
Both forms of the word end in -ing, e.g. SHOPPING, but a present participle is a form of a verb, which we use for things like the continuous verb form, whereas a gerund is a noun that comes from a verb. For example, “I am SHOPPING” is a verb, but “I like SHOPPING” is a gerund, i.e. a noun.
