Grammar Practice

The sites that follow will help you revise the verbs which are followed by the ing or the infinitive. First I'll send you to the tutorial (very useful if you don't remember the theory) and then  the exercises.

Verbs followed by gerunds (tutorial)
Verbs followed by infinitives (tutorial)

Verbs followed by gerunds or infinitives (different meaning) (tutorial)
Verbs followed by a gerund or infinitive (no or very little difference in meaning) (tutorial)
Verbs followed by a gerund or a noun plus the infinitive (tutorial)

I know this looks like too much but you don't have to do everything in one go. Take your time and above all do them if you think they help you improve your English.


Watch this funny cartoon which will help you learn and understand some popular idioms in English.

Now click on this and do the quiz on the right. There are several more idioms than the ones highlighted in the quiz. If you can't make out what they mean, look them up in the dictionary. You could also post in comments the meaning of the idioms you spot. That would help all of us learn more.
I'm sure you'll enjoy watching this.
