TENSE TUESDAY: GERUND AFTER PREPOSITIONS
23 / 02 / 2016
Hello everyone! Welcome to The Daily Vitamin's Tense Tuesday

Students are often confused about when to use a GERUND (-ing) and when to use an INFINITIVE (verb TO), so today we are focusing on this idea. One time that we typically use a GERUND is when a verb follows a preposition, such as the construction ADJECTIVE PREPOSITION GERUND

Example 1: I am not good at swimming

Example 2: Tim gets frustrated after studying maths.

Example 3: She was upset upon hearing the news. 

We can also use the ADJECTIVE PREPOSITION (NOT) GERUND for sentences in the negative.

Example 4: We have been bad about not cooking healthy food lately. 

Example 5: I feel terrible about not going to your birthday party.
