|My very first post here guys, I found this place by chance and find it REALLY useful. I'm Brazilian and I'm teaching English here, but of course, as a non native English Speaker I have some doubts.
So, what's the main difference between these two sentences:
- Did you try opening the window?
- Did you try to open the window?
- I will never forget to meet you there.
- I will never forget meeting you there.
-> In this second sentence, to my understanding, "...meeting..." means something that already happened, and "... to meet..." means something that may have happened in the past but will still happen again in the future. Is that right?
And what about the window sentence?
Thanks in advance! :D
I'm new here and I like it ;-)
