Mensagem:  Hi, there, everyone at EMB! In my last class at school, I really got confused because my teacher taught us how to use the possesive in sentences like "Jane counts ON OUR helping her", "Pat is interested IN YOUR coming to the lecture", etc. And now I'm confusing everything. What is right: I saw their lighting the fire or I saw them lighting the fire? Is this a rule or something? Does it take some special verbs to do it? I hope you guys can help me. Thank you
