Use of infinitive

It might be helpful to point out how an infinitive is used to express what in English a gerund might be used for (Sorry, I know that's a horrible sentence.) To reference the quiz question, "conducir" is used for the concept "driving." As an English speaker, that is strange and it was not apparent right away what was going on.

Hola William,

The attached might be a good place to start.

It introduces another very useful aspect of this topic, and expands on the lesson you have just done i.e. with “gustar like” verbs. If the link doesn’t open, search on “gerund” and you will find it.

Saludos. John

Using the infinitive (not the gerund) as the subject/object of the verb
