ESL beginner writing lesson- sentence pattern: start/stop verb+ing

Sentence Pattern

start/stop verb+ing


• When you put a verb after start, begin, stop, finish, or quit,
you must add “-ing”

start (started)
begin (began)
stop (stopped) verb+ing
finish (finished)
quit (quit)



Examples:
I started studying English in 3rd grade.
I finished writing my homework at 11:00 last night.
My father quit smoking because it is unhealthy.
We began dating when we met last year.



Write your own sentences, using the sentence pattern above:


1. ________________________________________________________

2. ________________________________________________________

3. ________________________________________________________

4. ________________________________________________________

5. ________________________________________________________
