Stop doing vs Stop to do
Stop doing 和 Stop to do的用法区别
Hi, I'm Sian from BBC Learning English. What's the difference between stop to do and stop doing something?
大家好！我是BBC英语学习的希恩. Stop doing 和 Stop to do两者有什么区别呢？
Well, stop what you're doing right now because that's what I'm going to tell you.
When we use stop plus ING, the activity in the ING form stops. So, I have stopped drinking coffee. I'm not drinking coffee any more, I'm only drinking water.
But when stop is followed by the infinitive, it means we stop doing another action to do the action in the infinitive. So, I stopped to buy a tea this morning - I stopped walking in order to buy a tea
Right I'm going to stop talking now. Write me a comment and tell me something that you've stopped doing.
