Some adjectives go with certain prepositions. There is no real pattern – you need to learn them as you meet them.

Hello romeo banu,

You can find the answer to this question in the example sentences in the dictionary entry for 'keen': 'on'.

Hi! could you help me to explain this: she is an (experiencing/experienced) teacher.
I can not distinguish betwent them.
Thank you!

Hello Nguyenvanta,

There are many adjectives that can have both an '-ed' and '-ing' ending, but in this case, only 'experienced' is an adjective and so it is the only form that is correct. 'experiencing' could be part of a verb, for example, in the present continuous: 'We are experiencing bad weather'.

To learn more about the difference in meaning between adjectives ending in '-ed' and '-ing', I'd recommend watching the video on Notting Hill Scene 2- Language Focus.
