Dialog: "Now, managing international teams can present many challenges."

A verbal is a word formed from a verb, but functioning as a different part of speech. In this lesson we'll focus on the use of a verb in the -ing form functioning as a noun. In other words, using the gerund form of a verb as a noun means it is the "act" of doing something, and therefore represents the subject of the sentence. It can also be called a gerund phrase.
