Description

This English grammar course teaches you how to form gerunds and turn verbs into nouns by adding 'ing' to the end of the word. We cover the use of infinitives as subject or object and explain how verbs, prepositions and noun phrases can combine with gerunds. We also show you how infinitive clauses - which typically begin with 'to' - differ from continuous clauses.

Next, we establish why the adjective comes before the infinitive in certain sentences. You will also learn how English conjunctions, prepositions, adverbs and adverbials are used to link clauses together. The course then examines the differences between the adjectives 'big' and 'great' and shows you how to use them in a sentence. We also outline effective methods of summarizing written articles and provide exercises to help you practice your new skills.

This course is aimed at intermediate English learners who are ready to discover more grammar, specifically gerunds and infinitives. Our interactive presentations, assessments and audio clips will help you polish your reading and listening skills. Sign up to learn English grammar and boost your confidence in this global language.
