Comment choisir entre “going” (gerondif) ou “to go” (infinitif)? Malheureusement, il n’y a pas de règles en anglais, il faut donc vous familiariser avec quelques exemples important.

On peut faire la comparison entre “consider” et “decide”:

I considered buying an Apple computer.
Je pensais acheter un ordinateur Apple.

In the end I decided to buy a PC.
finallement, j’ai décider d’acheter un PC

    Hi Jacky,

    It’s a good question. Sometimes the problem is not that the person you are talking to doesn’t understand, but that he understands something different to what you mean!

    In general a native speaker will understand, and probably won’t bother to correct you. Be careful with “stop” though:
    ‘stop smoking’ means you don’t smoke now, while ‘stop to smoke’ means that you stop whatever activity you were doing IN ORDER TO smoke! (quite the opposite meaning!)
