GERUND OR INFINITIVE? (BUY)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back and happy Friday, everyone! I hope that you have enjoyed our Gerund vs. Infinitive lessons this week.


Antes de la lección de hoy, me gustaría pediros un favor importante.

Ziggurat se unirá a Magic Line este año, como hicimos en 2017. Magic Line es un evento de recaudación de fondos organizado por el conocido hospital Sant Joan de Déu, que trabaja para ayudar a las personas más vulnerables. Podéis leer más sobre el proyecto en su sitio web: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/que_es_la_magic_line.

¿Como podéis ayudar? Ziggurat tiene el objetivo de duplicar nuestro objetivo del 2017, que fue de 1.000€ (y terminamos recaudando 1.124€). Este año queremos recaudar al menos 2000€ antes del día de la caminata, el 24 de febrero. Por favor, ¿podríais donar un euro o dos (o cinco) a través de la página de Ziggurat en el sitio web de Magic Line: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/donar/31?  Todo el dinero que donamos va directamente al hospital.

Si cada uno de los miles de suscriptores de Daily Vitamin diera solo un par de euros a la causa, ¡sería increíble! Alcanzaríamos nuestra meta (y podríamos participar en la caminata de Magic Line el 24 de febrero); pero lo más importante es que estaríamos ayudando a muchas familias y niños que necesitan mucha ayuda.

¡Muchas gracias por vuestro tiempo y colaboración!


Following is your last challenge of the week. It's two sentences! One needs a gerund and the other needs an infinitive with TO.

Sentence 1: We plan _____ (BUY) a house later this year. 

Sentence 2: We plan on _____ (BUY) a house later this year. 

Give us your answers on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later; we will also include the correct answer in Monday's Daily Vitamin email.

Good luck and have a great weekend!

GERUND OR INFINITIVE? (SMOKE)

Today we are continuing with our series of lessons about Gerund vs. Infinitive. Today's challenge is a little tricky. Here is your sentence. 

Sentence: I stopped _____ (SMOKE).

Here’s the tricky part: both SMOKING and TO SMOKE are correct... but the meaning of each sentence is different depending on whether you use the infinitive or the gerund. We are looking for the sentence that means that the person no longer smokes. Or maybe you can explain both meanings.

Give us your answers on one of our social media sites (Twitter or Facebook) and we will post the correct answer later; we will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email.

Best of luck to you!

GERUND OR INFINITIVE? (LISTEN)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Wednesday, everyone!


Before today's lesson, I would like to ask you for an important favour.

Ziggurat is joining the Magic Line this year, like we did in 2017. The Magic Line is a fundraising event that is organized by the well-known hospital, Sant Joan de Deu, working to help the most vulnerable people. You can read more about the project on their website: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/que_es_la_magic_line.  

How can you help? Ziggurat has a goal to double our objective from 2017, which was 1,000€ (and we ended up raising 1,124€). This year we want to raise at least 2000€ before the day of the walk, on February 24th. Please, could you donate a euro or two (or five) through Ziggurat’s page on the Magic Line website: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/donar/31? All of the money you donate goes directly to the hospital.

If each of the thousands of Daily Vitamin subscribers gave just a couple of euros to the cause, it would be amazing! We would reach our goal (and be able to participate in the Magic Line walk on February 24th), but more importantly… we would be helping a lot of families and children who need a lot of help.

Thank you very much for your time and collaboration!


Today we are continuing with our Gerund vs. Infinitive week. Each day we give you a sentence with a verb missing and ask you to complete the sentence with either a gerund form of the verb (-ING) or an infinitive with TO

Here is today's challenge. 

Sentence: I enjoy _____ (LISTEN) to classical music when I study. 

Which do you think it is? TO LISTEN or LISTENING? Give us your answer on one of our social media sites (Twitter or Facebook) and we will post the correct answer later; we will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email.

Good luck, and thank you for participating!
