The infinitive :" to + a verb"

The infinintive : I want to learn English   

Infinitives are used :

1- After certain verbs : " try - agree-  decide - expect - help - learn - hope  - need ....

Examples :

- We need to practice the language everyday.

- I hope to improve my English language.

-They decided to travel abroad.

-I always try to do my best in my classroom.


2-After certain adjectives :  


- It's important to have good friends.

-It's interesting to know other's culture.

It's not easy to learn a second language .


Those are the important rules of using the infinitive .The next discussion will be about "Gerunds":  writing  ,learning  ,.....

Can u guess the right answer :

1- To learn English is important .

2- Learning English is important .

   Thank you :)
