help smb doing

Postby SARDORBEK » Wed Nov 09, 2011 10:33 am

The following statement has been taken from the same source:

'We are waiting to help you building your strong future.'

As far as I know the following structures exist in the grammar world:
a) to help do smth;
b) to help to do smth.;
c) to help smb. do smth.;
d) to help smb. to do smth.

I have another question:
''to help smb.doing smth." - is it informal structure?


Many thanks...

No, it is simply incorrect.
Your list of possible structures is complete!
