Task Description
This video lesson revises verb + infinitive and verb + gerund combinations: forget, remember, try, go on, regret and stop. These verbs can be followed by either an infinitive or a gerund, but their meaning changes depending on the verb pattern. This grammar topic is most likely covered at Intermediate (B1) or Upper-Intermediate (B2) level. The accent of the actors is American English. Everyone can be understood, except for Milton, the weirdo coworker, who is slurring his words. Recommended Pre-task: Watch a short video explanation of verbs plus gerund /verbs plus infinitive and their different meanings: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=s1htxRUiLNk
