    Agus which of these would be most correct; Léifidh an scoláire óg a cheacht inniu. Beidh an scoláire óg a cheacht ag léamh inniu. Beidh an scoláire óg ag léamh a cheacht inniu. The young student will be reading his lesson today.

    Bhí sé ag snámh san abhainn = He was swimming in the river.
    Shnámh sé san abhainn = He swam in the river.

    Agus which of these would be most correct;

    Léifidh an scoláire óg a cheacht inniu. = The young scholar will read his lesson today

    Beidh an scoláire óg a cheacht ag léamh inniu. > wrong because you have to put the object after the verbal noun when it’s preceded by “ag”.

    Beidh an scoláire óg ag léamh a cheacht inniu. The young student will be reading his lesson today.

    right except that it should be “a cheachta” (genitive after verbal noun).
