Continuar +infinitive

I want to make sure I understand the lesson correctly--so continuar is never used with an infinitive, as it is in English? It is only correct to use it with a gerund?

Hola Stephanie

Yes, that's correct - in Spanish we cannot say "continuar hacer algo"; we say "continuar haciendo algo", always followed by the gerund form.

Saludos
