Here’s a video we’ve recently made about gerund and infinitive forms after the verb ‘stop’. Someone recently pointed me at a site called fiverr.com where you can hire all kinds of folks to do all kinds of jobs for ‘a fiver’. So we hired a knife juggler and a dancer for this video. Ha! We had a lot of fun making it. Enjoy!
