Webinar 1: Demystifying Gerunds and Infinitives

Presenter: Mark Wolfersberger

Thursday, March 31, at 6:00 p.m.

 Abstract: When learning about gerunds (verb-ing; “hate going”) and infinitives (to verb; “want to go”), many English students fear the long list of verbs that just have to be memorized. There is no need to fear! Students can learn a quick method to help them accurately guess whether a verb is followed by a gerund or an infinitive. In this workshop, you will learn about the Bolinger Principle. This principle can remove some of the stress students feel from studying English.

 Bio: Mark Wolfersberger has been teaching English for more than 20 years. He has taught in Japan, the United States, New Zealand, and is currently teaching at Brigham Young University – Hawaii. He loves meeting new people from different cultures and countries, and teaching English has given him friends around the world.
