Structure: ‘verbs + verbs 3’

Fly High English - Structure

This time in our structure help we continue to talk about patterns when we have two verbs together. In our previous posts we saw the patterns;

verb + to + infinitive


verb + verb-ing

And we saw a list of verbs which require these patterns.

This time we’re going to look at a group of verbs which can follow both of these patterns and which have the same meaning.

like, prefer, love, hate, continue, start, begin

So the following sentences are both correct and mean essentially the same thing.

I like to fly gliders.
I like flying gliders.

Here’s another example;

I started to train when I was seventeen.
I started training when I was seventeen.

Now try to write some examples of your own.
