Gerunds & Infinitives PDF Notes, Documents and Exercises with Answers

It’s actually quite simple to make a sentence in English. Basically, you can easily set up simple sentences when you move by subject, verb, and object order. But most of the time, the job gets confused when it comes to using two verbs in a row. “Whis is after, which verb is first, is there another word in between?” Then, the value of infinitives and nouns emerges here. When you need to use two actions consecutively in a sentence, you must either add the -to suffix between the two verbs or add the -ing suffix to the second verb. Structures that you add to are called infinitive, and -ing is called Gerund form. Gerund, as the word meaning, has the meaning of noun-verb. Noun-verbs are also known as verb. It occurs when the verb takes -ing.

Using gerunds as the subject of the sentence:

  • Eating bread is bad for people health.
  • Learning a English language is like becoming another people.
  • Hiking can be a very good activity for people body and soul.
  • Surfing is too bad for you.

Using gerunds as the object of the sentence:

  • Your favorite activity is reading articles.
  • Tomas enjoy swimming.
  • There is no sleeping.
