    Re: Which verbs take "to" ?

    sorry,but thatīs too big a task...there are verbs that are followed by the infinitive of another verb ( like, I want to do it), there are others which are followed by another verb in the -ing form ( like, I enjoy doing it ) and there are also verbs which can take both forms without having a change in their meanings ( I like to do it/I like doing it) and with a change of meaning ( I stopped to do x/ I stopped doing x).So ,if I were you I would just learn which is which as you continue your studyings. Iīll check and see if I can find a page for you to have a look at this...
