Mensagem: 

He got skates for Christmas and loves to skate.  In addition to skating, however, he has another interest.


So, if you have skates, you skate.


On his birthday, he was given a skateboard.  Now he loves to skate and skateboard.  He goes all over the neighboard. sometimes on skates and sometimes on a skateboard.


Aha!  There are two verbs!  We already had TO SKATE and now we have TO SKATEBOARD.


Does he love skating best or skateboarding best?  It is difficult to say.


Those two verbs again!  Clearly, the meanings are different.  So TO SKATE means to use skates and TO SKATEBOARD means to use a skateboard.


Got it?
