In this post we will study the same verb followed by an infinitive and a gerund. The two structures are grammatically correct, but yes! you are right! If there are two structures, there must be two meanings!!! Depending on what you want to say, use one or the other.
Usually the Ving choice takes us back to an action of the past, whereas the infinitve has an future or immediate nuance attached to the meaning.

- I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.
