    like to verb /like verbing

    Hi!
    Please have a look:
    I wonder what's difference between:
    like swimming and like to swim to native speakers, and so does the verb:
    learn swimming and learn to swimming
    Could you clarify for me?
    Thank you!

    Smile Re: like to verb /like verbing

    Hello!
    Please note I'm not a mother tongue speaker, but I remember studying this rule:

    I like + ING = I enjoy doing something because it's fun

    example = I like going to the cinema


    I like TO VERB = I do it because I think it's worth it, because it's good for me, for my job, for my health etc.

    example = I like to get up early so I have time to study
    I like to eat healthy food to keep fit

    Hope it helps and wait for a mother tongue to confirm
