Arsenio's ESL Podcast: Episode 39 - Grammar - Verb + Infinitive

Welcome back to another episode + podcast! I’m bringing to your some more basics in terms of grammar: the infinitive.

An infinitive is made of to + base verb

Infinitives follow verbs want, need, have, plan, hope, would like, and would love.

I need to study

I want to watch TV.

In my podcast, I will go over several answers that are written down below.  Do the exercise first, then listen to my podcast down below.
