continue take/ continue to take/ continue taking
Which of the following is/are correct?
'You may continue take the class if you have paid.'
'You may continue to take the class if you have paid'.
'You may continue taking the class if you have paid'.
I was most doubtful about the first sentence, so I googled 'continue take' and found the below:
"Over the next five years our foreign policy engagement will continue take
place in three areas – our bilateral relationships, regional diplomacy, and
in the ..."
So it's okay to use an infinitive after 'continue' I suppose?
Re: continue take/ continue to take/ continue taking
No. In my opinion, the example you found through Google is either a typo or the speaker missed out a word. It should read "our foreign policy engagement will continue to take place ..." You cannot use the bare infinitive in the context you posted.
