  • Hi! Saskia for BBC Learning English here,

  • and today I'm going to tell you about

  • how we use verbs of perception in English.

  • There are a number of these verbs

  • but I'm just going to look at two with you now:

  • see and hear.

  • When we use these verbs, this is the form:

  • First, the verb of perception.

  • Then, the object of the sentence.

  • Then we have either

  • the infinitive without to or the -ing form.

  • Here's an example:

  • I heard him go down the stairs.

  • Or:

  • I heard him going down the stairs.

  • There's a slight difference between these two forms:

  • When we use the infinitive,

  • it suggests that we hear or see

  • the whole action or event.

  • Using theing form suggests that

  • we hear or see something in progress.

  • 'I saw her cross the street'

  • means I saw her cross from one side to the other.

  • 'I saw her crossing the street'

  • means I saw her in the middleon the way across.
