Hi again and welcome to this new English grammar corner, today we're going to see how to use imperatives, infinitives and -ing forms.
Hola otra vez y bienvenidos al rincón de la gramática inglesa, hoy vamos a ver cómo utilizar los imperativos, infinitivos y formas terminadas en -ing.
We use imperatives for giving advice and instructions.
Utilizamos los imperativos para dar consejos e instrucciones.
-Run early in the evening, it's better
-Meet me at six o'clock.
-Always wear comfortable shoes.
-Never run at midday in summer.
TO DO NEGATIVE SENTENCES IS EASY TOO. Put DON'T before the verb and you've got it.
Para hacer frases negativas, es fácil también. Se pone DON'T delante del verbo y lo tenéis.
-Don't come late.
-Don't tell Peter.
**INFINITIVES WITH "TO"
We use infinitives with to:
*After verbs like : hope, want, have, would like.
-I hope to see you soon.
-She doesn`t want to go home.
-They have to stay at the hotel.
-Would you like to have a drink?
*After something, anything, nothing.
-Would you like something to drink?
-Have you got anything to wear?
-There is nothing to eat.
INFINITIVES WITHOUT "TO".
We use infinitives without "to" :
*after the special verbs, can, could, will, would.
-I can speak English.
-Could you speak slowly?
-It will snow tomorrow.
-What would you like?
-Let's go dancing!
-Let's play cards!
-Let's sing a song.
We use -ing forms:
*after the verbs like (when it is a hobby or sport, if not you'll put infinitive with TO), love, hate, enjoy.
-I love swimming.
-Lucy likes playing basket.
-I hate skating.
-Paul enjoys playing with his friends.
*in progressive tenses.
-I'm writing a book.
-What are they doing? They are having lunch.
*after all prepositions.
