Предлог (in/for/about и др.) + -ing

Урок 60

Если после предлога (in/for/about и др.) следует глагол, глагол будет заканчиваться на -ing:

  предлог глагол (-ing)  
Are you interested in working for us?
I’m not very good at learning languages.
Sue must be fed up with studying.  
What are the advantages of having a car?
Thanks very much for inviting me to your party.
How about meeting for lunch tomorrow?
Why don’t you go out instead of sitting at home all the time?
Carol went to work in spite of feeling ill.

Вы также можете сказать ‘instead of somebody doing something’, ‘fed up with people doing something’ и т.п. :


Обратите внимание на использование следующих предлогов + -ing:

before -ing и after -ing:

Вы также можете сказать ‘Before I went out ...’ и ‘... after you left school’.

by -ing (чтобы сказать как что-нибудь происходит):

without -ing:


To -ing (look forward to doing something и пр.)

To часто является частью инфинитива (to do / to see и т.п.):

Но to также и предлог (как in/for/about/from и др.). Например:

Если после предлога следует глагол, то глагол будет заканчиваться на -ing:

in doing

about meeting

without stopping (и т.д.)

Поэтому, когда to - предлог и после него следует глагол, вы должны сказать to -ing:
