Hello and welcome back to The Art of Business English. Today’s episode is the second part in a two-part series which looks at specific forms after verbs. In the first episode we looked at infinitive and gerund forms after certain verbs. In today’s episode we are going to be looking at objects and infinitive with or without “to” after specific verbs.


Mastering these verbs will make you sound much more fluent when using your English on a daily basis.


So, today we have the episode divided into two parts. First, we will look at verbs which are followed by an object and infinitive. In the later part, we will look at verbs that are followed by an object and a bare infinitive. For those of you who don’t know what a bare infinitive is, it is a verb in its infinitive form without “to” in front of it. It’s important to note that this is not the same as the imperative, even though the form looks the same.


Therefore, in today’s episode you will learn the following:

  1. Verbs which are typically followed by an object and infinitive
  2. Verbs which are typically followed by an object and a bare infinitive
  3. Some common expressions used in everyday business English that follow these structures
