  19. How do you talk about activities?
    • Some activities are written with the -ing form of a verb (dancing is the -ing form of 'to dance').
    • This is a gerund. A gerund is a verb that ends in -ing but acts like a noun.

    • Some activities or sports combine with the verb 'to go'. But others combine with the verbs 'to play' or 'to do'. How can you tell the difference?
    • ------------------------------
    • 'To go' partners with activities that use the gerund.
    • [I go camping. I go swimming.]

    • 'To do' partners with individual activities; some are gerunds and some are not gerunds.
    • [I do figure skating. I do gymnastics]

    • 'To play' combines with activities that involve a ball or activities that involve a competition.
    • [I play tennis.]
    • -> ! There's 1 exception; you say I go golfing, even though you use a ball in golf ! <-
