Hi Teachers,

Can you tell me what the difference is between the following two sentences? If there is any, of course.

He is a strict teacher who has the children working.

He is a strict teacher who has the children work.

Thanks in advance

In the first sentence, the children are presently working; in the second he generally has them work, but they are not necessarily doing so now.

Thank you, and what about these sentences:

The tutor had them swimming in a week.

The tutor had them swim in a week.
#1-- they were able to swim after the tutor taught them for one week.

#2-- the tutor caused / arranged for / permitted them to swim on the 8th day.
Thanks a lot
