Starting to learn English, we build short sentences and express thoughts with simple constructions. However, deepening our knowledge and expanding vocabulary, we are faced with many strange and incomprehensible combinations. In this part, we will try to understand how verb patterns works, and also what an infinitive and a gerund are, and how to choose one or another to sound correct, beautiful and “English” =)
So, we need the full infinitive (to - infinitive):
She went to the market to buy some milk.
They promised to help us with the party.
We decided to visit our friend while we are on holiday.
He was sad to hear that we had left.
Why are you so reluctant to help?
She was clever not to believe her friend.
It should be said as well that adjectives describing the traits of character, can be used with unpersonal construction
It + be + adjective + of + noun/pronoun
It was clever of her not to believe her friend.
We have a lot of work to do.
Tale something to eat when you leave on your trip.
You are too young to go abroad alone.
It is important to remember these rules.
It was our dream to open our own restaurant.
I came to work only to find that it was a holiday and the office was closed.
He is the last one to trust.
