Gerund (-ing) or infinitive (to) followed after these verbs?

Hi, my name is Victoria and I have been teaching ESL students for many years now and one thing that I have noticed is that

one really easy thing you can do to improve your English is to memorize the verbs that can be followed by a gerund, infinitive or both.

Example: I invited her ____ (go).  Infinitive or gerund? Infinitive: I invited her to go to the party with me.

I don't mind _____(do) my English homework. Infinitive or gerund? Gerund: I don't mind doing my English homework.

Let's get started with 5.

Gerund or infinitive?

1. I enjoy______(you choose the verb).

2. I'll offer ____ (help) her.

3. I don't expect _______(travel) this weekend.

4. I appreciate____ (you choose)

5. I suggest ____(study) hard for that test.
