Could you please tell me if the following verbs can take the -ing form in the examples below? I included a sentence I need to write in an email.

1) I'm smelling the perfume of the flowers.
I'm testing a red wine.
2) I'm hearing him coming (I think you can only say " I can hear him coming)
I'm thinking of going to London.
I think he won't come.
I'm thinking about my next trip to France.
3) What do you think of/about him?
You just need to give your students the class email address and they can start the email partnership.
4) Of course, my students will need to know your class eamil address to answer your students' emails. Let me have it as soon as possible.

  • English -

    Sometimes the "I'm hearing ... " (or whatever present progressive you're using) ends up sounding like a non-native English speaker. Here are the ones that work well:

    1. OK

    2. You're right ... about all of them.

    3. What do you think of him? = Do you think he's good to be around? Is he silly or dangerous ... or is he OK to be around?
    (To use "about" is OK, too, but the more common usage is with "of.")

    Add a comma after "email address" - this is a compound sentence.
