KEEP DOING SOMETHING (1): meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had an excellent weekend!

Today's expression is: Keep -ing

It means: to continue to do something persistently, although there may be interruptions in the action.

Example 1:
Speaker 1: I think I'm putting on weight.
Speaker 2: Well, you will get fat if you keep eating doughnuts and chocolate!

Example 2:
Speaker 1: Did you ask John about employing some more technicians?
Speaker 2: Yes, but he ignored my question and kept talking about labour cuts.

Example 3:
Speaker 1: Did you pass your driving test?
Speaker 2: No, but I'll keep trying!

Tomorrow we'll look at another subtle meaning sense of this strucutre.
