Gerunds X Infinitives

Age: Older Teens & Adults

We can practice Verb + O + Infinitives with the song “DON´T TELL ME”. First, students talk about personality traits. Then, they go over a list of verbs and check comprehension and pronunciation. After that, they listen to the song and use the infinitive form of the verbs learned to fill in the blanks. Finally, they complete sentences, so they are true for them and when they finish, they share the sentences with a peer.


Age: Adults

The song “HARD TO SAY I´M SORRY” is an old song, so it´s suitable for adults only. First, students talk about the last time they had to apologize for something. Then, they listen to the song, read the lyrics and find Infinitive Forms. Finally, they complete sentences, so they are true for them. In the end, they share the sentences with peers.
