Hi,
I like the site and also your explanations. It's easy to understand.
Could you please tell me the meaning of the sentence. I see no relation between "not drink tea with sugar" and "remove the spoon". I can't get it.

Tks and b'rgds,
Linh

Hi Linh,

Many thanks for your positive feedback. As for your question, when you put sugar into your tea you normally use a spoon. Once you have put the sugar into your cup you also use the spoon to stir your tea. Now, before you drink your tea you should remove the spoon from your cup because otherwise you run the risk of hurting yourself when you put the cup to your mouth.

I think "reject" mean throw away or refuse to receive something. in this case, it mean you don't put sugar in your tea cup.
That's all I think.
correct or not?

Dear Torsten! why we don't use " don't forget removing your spoon"?
please distinguish "forget Ving" from "forget to do sth"?
thanks a lot!

Hi,

'Don't forget to do something' suggests that you must remember to do something in the future' 'Forget' + the 'ing' form isn't possible. There is however a choice between 'remember to' and 'remember doing'. Again 'remember to' refers to a future action as in: I must remember to lock the door tonight. 'Remember doing' refers to the past as in: I remember locking the door last night.

Alan, is there a mistake? I do have seen someone used the 'forget' + the 'ing' form means I really did something but I forget that I did it.

Hi,

Unusual. You could say: I forgot I'd done it.
