Today’s lesson: Supernatural by Warner
Season 1, episode 2
-ING forms

The second episode from the first season brought us the most famous phrases from the show:

saving people

But teacher, why is it “saving” and not “to save”? Well there are many ways to use -ing in a verb. Let’s take a look:

1- Present Continuous

This is the basic one. We use -ing to indicate an action in progress in the moment of speaking.

Ex: “Dean is talking about the family business.”

usar -ing verbos em inglês

But “saving people, hunting things…” is NOT an action in progress.

2- Using a verb as a noun

When Dean says “saving people” he is using the verb “to save” as a noun. A verb becomes a noun when it is the subject or the object of a sentence.

Ex: Saving people and hunting things are the family business.

Saving people and hunting things are the family business.

We could also say: “The Winchester family business is saving people and hunting things.”

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (1)

So if you have a verb as the subject or object of a phrase, it is not a verb anymore, it is a noun and you need to add -ing.

Are there other situations to use -ing? Yes! Let’s see them:

3- Using a verb as an adjective

Adjective is a characteristic. If this characteristic comes from a verb, you need to add -ing to it.

Ex: to swim – swimming lesson

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (2)

“Swimming” is the characteristic of the lesson. We can have reading lessons, painting lessons, hunting lessons…

4- After prepositions

If after a preposition you have a verb; add -ing to it.

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (3)

5- After some specific verbs

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (4)

Some verbs can accept [to + verb] or [verb+ing], but some only accept a verb+ing.

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (5)

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (6)

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (7)

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (8)

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (9)

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (10)

The use #2 can help you when you need to use any of these verbs. Ex:

Saving people and hunting things are the family business. (11)

From numbers 2 to 5 the verbs are NOT in the gerund form. The only use that indicates an action in progress is the Present Continuous.

Can you use the -ing forms correctly now? We hope so! Can you create your own examples with the 5 forms? Leave them in the comments below!

I’ll see you very soon! Bye!
