Como regra geral, basta adicionar -ing ao final de cada verbo:
To feel - feeling ; to go - going ; to work - working
If the verb ends in an E, we remove E and add -ing.
To live - living ; To have - having ; To make - making
If the verb ends in consonant + vowel + consonant, we double the final consonant:
to stop - stopping ; to sit - sitting ; to plan - planning ; to get - getting ; to swim - swimming
WE DO NOT DOUBLE the consonant when the verb ends in W, X or Y.
to fix - fixing ; to enjoy - enjoying ; to snow - snowing
If the verb ends in IE we change it to YING.
to lie - lying ; to die - dying ; to tie - tying
Other exceptions to the rules:
to happen - happening ; to enter - entering ; to offer - offering ; to suffer - suffering ; to whisper - whispering
