I like reading books – Presentation
Gerund “verb + ing” (Object) – I enjoy singing karaoke.
This is a simple presentation introducing the idea of the “-ing” Gerund.
In my case, it was interesting to my students reaction about, “I enjoy watching soccer, but not playing soccer.” It was almost like they didn’t understand the difference at first. What do you mean you don’t like playing soccer? ARE YOU A WEIRDO? EVERYONE LIKES PLAYING SOCCER. But then I showed them that I’m fat, and they eventually understood that I never go outside.
