Yes, I`d like to know it too, and here is my understanding of it, if it`s ok, confirm that it really is, if it`s not please help.
Let`s say there is a girl who wants a man to fall for her. She`s tried everything but it didn`t work, now she asks her friend what to do and her friend says to her: Try making a cake for him, if he likes it he will maybe fall in love with you.
try to do:
in the same situation if her friend gave her a piece of advice to `try to make` a cake it would probably mean that they both want the man to focus on the efforts of the girl, not on the cake as such. `Try to make a cake`- if he sees it (the efforts, not the cake) he will fall for you
It would be better to understand it if someone for example underestimated somoeone else`s skills and the underestimated person would say then: if you are so good try to do it yourself
That is how I understand it, that would be funny if there is no difference though
Thanks for very useful information I have read.
I've learnt english for a long time, then I have been studying russian so my english got down so so and I forgot some grammar like this.
Would you tell me please how to use stop/regret/go on/remember + to do sth/doing sth??
