Verbs with "-ing"

You've probably seen a lot of verbs with -ing at the end of them, like sleeping, talking, or walking. There are two basic reasons to add -ing to the end of a verb: to form one of the progressive tenses, or to make a gerund.

We use the progressive tenses to talk about on-going actions. There are progressive tenses for the past, present, and future. For example, the present progressive looks like this: "I am walking to work right now." Progressive tenses are formed with be + main verb + -ing, as in, "Joe stopped by while I was watching a movie."

Verbs ending in -ing can also be gerunds, which act like nouns in a sentence. In the sentence, "I do the cleaning and my wife does the cooking," both cleaning and cooking are gerunds. Gerunds often follow other verbs, as in, "I can’t stop thinking about you," or, "I love skating."

I like it, simle and clear. Although i would add more information on using “-ing” form, there are many cases worth to discuss.
Though, the article helped me in doing my job, i write essays at paper wriring service (http://uk.college-paper.org), and it demands grammatical correctness

Essay writers must follow grammar rules as it plays an important role in report evaluation. As a report writer, you need to make proper use of ing with verbs and after completion of report, proofread it to avoid any mistakes. If you check custom essay companies reviews then you will find that grammar rules are strictly followed by professional writing companies. Thanks
