Using this worksheet, you will teach your students some verbs that change their meanings when they are followed by a gerund or an infinitive. On top of that, there are two oral practice activities that will allow students to use the newly acquired knowledge but also challenge them to use their critical-thinking skills!
The worksheet focuses on the following verbs: remember, forget, try, regret and stop. First, students have to match the sentences halves in each pair and compare their meanings. Monitor and facilitate the process by asking questions about the verbs, and make sure students get the differences in meanings. Next, students complete some questions with the correct form of the verbs in brackets. After checking the answers, make them discuss the questions in pairs.
The worksheet ends with an infographic showing various statistics related to retirement. Students have to talk about the information there and the probable causes and consequences behind that data. When discussing the data, students need to use verbs they’ve learnt during the lesson.
