I like the efforts have been taken by team to save the cafe & Olivia's shop.

I always find it difficult whether to use Infinitive(to+verb) or Gerund( ing+ verb) . Here i m trying to explain my difficulty
1. I stopped smoking
2. I stopped to smoke
I don't know which one is correct and why. Sir pls give me a general idea about it.

Hello jessica_22,

There is no easy way to know which form should be used – it depends on the verb, e.g. in this case the verb 'stop'. Some verbs take a to infinitive, others take the -ing form and some, like 'stop' can take both forms.

You should look up such verbs, e.g. 'stop' in the dictionary – see the handy search box on the right side of this page – and it will show you how they are used and what they mean. In your first sentence, it means you no longer have the habit of smoking. In the second one, it means you stopped doing something so that you could have a smoke!

Hello there
Someone help me join these tow sentences but use THAT?
There are workers. They from England.

Hello Shamal,

You can use 'that' as a relative pronoun to join these two sentences. See our relative clauses page for an explanation of how to do it.

Thanks for reply.
But I still didn't find my answer and could you help.
Can we use THAT to join these sentences if not why?

Hello Shamal,

Yes, you can use 'that' to join the sentences. Please read through the page I linked to and then try to join the two sentences into one using 'that'. If you write that sentence here in the comments, we'll tell you if it's correct or not and help you understand it.

Hello, LearnEnglish Team!
I have a question. When Johnny says:" Well, you’ll fit in with our team, then!", it's an irony, isn't it? Does he mean that nobody play football good in their team?

Hello krig,

That's exactly right – well done!
