  2. Infinitive = to + verb (example: to swim)
    Gerund = verb + ing (example: swimming)

    After certain verbs, such as “like,” we can use an infinitive or a gerund.

    examples:
    I like to swim.
    I like swimming.

    However, sometimes you can use only one. For example, after a preposition, you can only use a gerund.
    examples:
    I’m good at swimming.
    Are you interested in swimming?

    This was all described in your text book, and we did the lesson in class.
