in which cases we use will, gonna, Shall and going to

    Watch my lesson on will and going to on the site.
    “Shall” is very old-fashioned and British English — we rarely use shall in North America!
    Hope that helps — Good luck!

Hello Ronnie,
you are awsome because I am learning from you to much.could you please explain different between get and take? and also, is it OK to say mam to a young lady or not,I mean in what situation saying mam is OK?


    Get means to receive . Eg… “I get my paycheck every Friday.” “I get a gift on my birthday.” “I get a cold in the winter.”
    Take means you actively grab/reach/transport something. “I take a cookie from the bag.” “I take the salt and put it on my food.” “I take my paycheck to the bank.”
    Mam is a very formal way of addressing a lady. If you worked in an expensive restaurant or retail shop you would call a lady “mam”. However, in everyday situations, it is much too formal. You can just say young lady or girl, but it is best to call people by their first name in a casual situation!
    I hope that helps you!
    Thanks for commenting and good luck!

Hello Ronnie,,,thanks for the explanations,, it’s cool, thanks
And I would like to ask you, what is the differen between Realised and Realized, they are really bothering my mind,
thank you my teacher :)

Profile photo of cristal99 cristal99

    Hello Cristal99,

    Before, I had the same problem with you, I can’t not distinct: realise – realize, recognise – recognize, etc. Although realise is a British spelling and realize is a American spelling, they have same meaning. Hope it’s helpful.


    Profile photo of Tra My Tra My

      hello Muopmap,,, thanks for your kindness and told me about that, so no mattter which one we use both are coqqect :) now I got ht, thanks

      Profile photo of cristal99 cristal99

        Both are correct but is you want to use proper UK english it’s better to use Realise and Recognise, many words have been spelled differently to make it easier for Americans to spell them for example, Americans spell Center, the correct UK English is Centre, Americans spell Meter, UK Metre.
        Both versions are ok to use but only the UK version is true proper English so you need to decide if you just want to use English generally or if it is important for you to know the most proper form of English?

        Profile photo of chrisireland chrisireland

          hehe I meant to say > If you want to use proper English, I may speak English but my typing is not so good.

          Profile photo of chrisireland chrisireland

          Hey, there is no “most proper form of English”! English may have originated in the UK, but that doesn’t mean British English is “more correct” than American or Canadian English. You can’t use text-speak spelling in a school essay, and formal business English would be out of place at a party—but we teach people about the rules and phrases particular to each of these contexts. Similarly, if someone asks about UK vs. US English, it’s enough to say “This is a British usage” or “It’s only spelled this way in America”!

          (By the way, we’re based in Canada, which blends US and UK spelling: “cheque” and “metre”, but “recognize” and “practice”.)

          Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

          You said > “English may have originated in the UK, but that doesn’t mean British English is “more correct” than American or Canadian English”.
          If you read my comment I also said either version is ok to use? But if someone wants to learn Proper english (UK) they are better to learn and use the UK version, after all if you’re learning from zero it’s just as easy to learn the Original proper version as it is to learn the adapted versions?
          And yes maybe text speak etc may be accepted in some situations many people may need to pass an exam to allow them entry into the UK and they will need to score high to succeed and their spelling and grammar will be very important.
          I have a friends here in northern Ireland who married a woman from Mexico, she has had to sit the exam recently and it’s very strict, So as I said, depending on your reason for learning English it can matter which version you learn to use, the situation will make it more or less important to use proper UK English or not? Thanks for your reply, I’m sure both our points are valid depending on the situation.


          Corrections for my own comment,I said I have a friends, should have been a friend, I don’t type as well as i speak, opps


    The only difference is one is North American spelling and the other is British!

Hi Alex, thank you very much for you explanation on the Ordering of Adjective, yet I still not understand the adjective the say about Material and Purpose. If possible could you please make the new video about the words that talk about the adjective, thanks very much again.


Thanks for learn.It’s great lesson.


Hello…Thanks for these useful lessons..!!!

Can I use “to” or “for” depending on the meaning I want to convey..? I came across this two sentences: “I wrote the letter for you” and “I wrote the letter to you”.. and according to the explanation, in the first sentece “for” implies that I wrote the letter instead of you maybe because you were not able to or for any other reason… and in the second one, “to” implies that the letter is for you and for nobody else…

Could you please explain the difference between: Hope, Expect and Wait..? Thanks…

    Hope is similar to wish — it is almost not possible but something you want/wish to happen! I hope I win the lottery!

    Expect is something that you think should indeed happen. You expect that I will answer your email.

    Wait is a time phrase. I am waiting for your answer.

      According to your explanation, could you please tell me if this sentence is ok..?

        Yes, that is correct!

Profile photo of leelian leelian

    ” a friend quiz you” This sentence is wrong. You can say “A friend quizzes you” (present tense) or “A friend quizzed you.” (past tense) If you do that, then there is subject-verb agreement!

Hi Ronni
ur way of teaching is nice and clear. I’d like to know, why I can’t understand what the english native speaker exactly talk about, especialy when they speak long and quickly. how can I improve my listerning ability


    The first thing is don’t try to comprehend EVERY word the person is saying – if you can get even a few words, you may be able to understand what the person is trying to say! When I lived in Japan, I didn’t understand what the people were saying but I could get a few words and be able to piece together the information!
    Body language is a great help too – look at the speakers face and eyes – you can tell by the person’s expressions their emotions!
    It is difficult too because we use a lot of slang (esp. young people). You should try to learn slang and idioms!
    If the person is talking to you, just ASK them what they meant! It is a great way to communicate with people and perhaps they will use different words that you DO understand!
    The last thing is just listen everywhere you are – your brain will absorb it and you will be able to understand! Watch tv shows or movies with English subtitle, and listen to music with words on youtube. The radio is TOO DIFFICULT; they speak too fast and use too much slang!
    Good luck!

Dear Ronnie,
There was a mistake the lesson you were teaching here.Here is the link.Will you please check this link again.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTQb42w7oig&feature=relmfu
example was:I eat lunch
and your answer was:Lunch was eaten…
But the example that you gave here was The simple tense so Answer should have been passive(simple tense)which is:Lunch is eaten(by me)if the example was tense then your answer would be correct.
which is like:I ate Lunch(Active)
Lunch was eaten by me(Passive)

Profile photo of mehmet2769 mehmet2769

    “Lunch was eaten” is correct and can mean lunch was eaten by a group or by one person, although it would normally be applied to a group as one person would probably say I ate lunch.


Good morning teacher . I agree with everybody said good word for you ,I would like to add one thing ( I like your teaching by using body language )

Ronnie, I started to learn English when I was 12-13… do you think if I move to the U.S.A or Canada or whatever I’ll be able to speak English without a foreign accent? I love you! bye ;)


    I doubt it very much as my Gran came from Scotland when she was 8 and never lost her accent! But if you try perhaps you can! Where are you from???

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      I’m Brazilian


        Hi Italo, I do not think that you have to try to change your accent, the most important thing is that we use English to communicate and if people understand what you gonna tell them. It is nice if you are perfect, I mean it is nice if you can try the native voice (American or Englis),if not that is still ok, communicative effectiveness is more concerned. I think so and good luck.

Thank you so much for your teaching on To and For. I´m Brazilian too and I can tell you, we have loads of doubts related to prepositions, especially To and For. I think this topic was all covered and I have no more doubts :-) Thanks a million!


Hello Ronnie,

nice video, but I have still a question about using “to or for”. Yesterday I saw an English movie where they used the following sentence “It’s very important to me!” Why is “to” used in this case, and not for? I do not see there any kind of exchange. Could I also use “for” in this scentence?

Thanks a lot for your help!
All the best


Hi Ronnie I realy like your lessons, one favour
Could tell me when or how is used: “in”, “at”, “on”

This lesson was very helpful for me as a non-english spoken background person. I have got very big advantage from it. But, there is one question for you? is there any previous lesson about on and upon as they are confusing me.


    There is no lesson about on and upon…but upon usually means that you are on top of something. On has many different meanings!

Hi, I`m an english teacher in south of Brazil, and I was with some doubts about students questions, when I found this website That is a such nice one.

Hi Ronnie
First of all thanks for all your lessons.
There are a few things that I’d like to mention. Some of the examples you’ve showed on this video make think of ‘it depends on the situation’.
For example: I sing for you. (you sing for someone for many different reasons) ok.
Now if someone says: I sing to you. Wouldn’t it be correct as well, simply with a different meaning?


    Yes! You are correct – it does depend on the situation. Some can use both – there are always exceptions to everything in English – that is why it is so hard to learn!

Hi Ronnie . Again i would like to ask you something relating to comprehension skills and composition skills . Can ya tell me how can i improve my these fields cuz ya know my exams are near so please quickly tell me . It will be a pleasure for ya to help .


    For listening you should try to listen to English tv shows with subtitles, and English music with the lyrics. Also it is not important to know EVERY word someone says – just the main words – your brain should be able to think about what the person has said!
    For writing – I suggest you write a little in English everyday!

    You don’t need to say to or for us……Just say it is very important.

Profile photo of ladiegrl02 ladiegrl02

Hello, Ronnie. I want to thank you for your lesson. But I still have one question to ask you. What is correct: “It’s important for me or to me?”
Once I asked my American penpal, and he replied that “It’s important to me” is correct. But, after watching this video I thought myself that he was wrong. Am I right or wrong? Thank you.


    It depends on the context – if you use for or to. Ex…Water is important for me (to live). Dogs are important to me (because I like them).
    English is very confusing and it is difficult for me to give you a concrete answer/example.
    I think that we use “important for me” when it affects our life – health, education, etc.
    “important for me” is more of your opinion on how much you value something.

Hi dear teacher! Your hair is perfect today! Well, I´m here to thank youthe lesson. You made it FOR me! I always confuse these words! Can I make you a question? When I was a child I learned a song: “Hello my dear teacher, how are you? I´m me so very happy TO say hello TO you.” Is the use of TO correct here? I´d like to know to teach my students!You´re in my heart! Celia!

Profile photo of Sally S Sally S

    Yes, the use of “to” in the song is correct! It should be I’m so very happy – not I’m me so very happy.
    You should say “Can I ask you a question”…not can I make you a question!!!!

ronnie i do understand the tenses, but why it is very difficult for me to compose a perfect grammar.can you make a sample for the cardinal 12 tenses.tnx a lot


thanks alot …. its really useful even i had this doubt for long days now it got over


i was writing to one of my friends i i put: you are a very special person for me but then i was thinking if is not also correct to say: you are a very important person for me!! which one is wrong and which one is correct? in this kind of sentences what are the rules in the usage of to and for?


    sorry i put the same i was trying to ask is it also correct to say this sentence in this two ways: she is very important to me or she is very importat for me thats my question


      In this case, you DO NOT need to put “for me” or “to me” because YOU said the words!
      All you need to say is = “You are very important”! The listener/reader will already understand that is it for her!!!!

    We should say “a lot of” but we are lazy when we speak so we say “lotsa” Ex. I have lotsa homework.
    We say this instead of saying much/many!

    You cannot say I believe on you! “I believe IN you”, we can only use for things that may not be real like Santa Claus or God.
    If we talk about regular people, we say “I believe you”!

      Hi Ronni,

      I’m a little bit confused about your explanation. There’s a song “I believe in you” by Kylie Minogue. What does she mean?
      Thank you kindly!

      Profile photo of adrianrusu adrianrusu

        It means that she believes that the person she is singing about is a good person and can do anything they want to!

          Thank you for replay Ronnie.
          So, if we talk about regular people, we can also say “I believe IN you”

hi, i’m an english teacher from Brazil and my students are still having a hard time understanding the difference between To and For, how can i explain “i have a test for next week” it’s not really a benefit, and also ” i want to go out for dinner and we went out to dinner” that’s confusing to/for them, i know the difference but they don’t see it. Is there a better way to clear that up?


    “i have a test for next week” is wrong. You need to say I have a test next week.
    i want to go out for dinner and we went out to dinner = this is an example in which English grammar has many many rules and these rules are broken or do not apply to EVERYTHING. Tell you students that….. It will help them ….Don’t think about the grammar too much – it will make you and your students crazy …… sometimes there is no logical explanation for English!!!!!!!!!!!!

actually the “to” in greece means “για” and it shows purpose
while the “for” does not mean “για” and it cannot be translated i english exactly and clearly

hi Ronnie mam plz explain me abt tenses?


Very useful.


Hi .
I like your teaching style; I think you’re an excellent communicator.
I was watching your lesson, when you were explaining the different between To vs. For.
The rule you’ve given ( transfer- To, benefit-For).it may only work for few cases, I would suggest that just to be on the safe side, you should mention that there are lots of verbs which are always followed by “to” Talk, Speak, Go, Listen,…………..
And we shouldn’t forget about the “Infinitive of Purpose”. “I switched my pc to listen to your lesson” I think the beginners should be told these rules which I’ve suggested at their early learning stage.

George Rabadi

very clear! hard topic for us (Argentinos)…thanks so much for helping us!

adriana rodriguez

Hi Ronnie,
Why “to” is not used in the following sentence?
I’m leaving for Japan today

According to you video, we should use “to” (I’m leaving to Japan today) here because we are carrying our body to Japan :-)

Why “for” is used instead of “to” in the above mentioned scenario… plz explain to me.


Profile photo of subusan subusan

    When you use the verb leaving, you can’t use “to”.
    You can say I am going to Japan today……..I don’t know the reason why some verbs need different words…Just unexplainable English grammar rules!!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      I heard somewhere that after GO always goes TO, and after LEAVE always goes FOR. Ex”I am going to Paris” or “I’m leaving for Paris”. Perharps, it’s easy to remember.)

    Yes, you are correct a gift can be a benefit but it is the TRANSFERRING of the gift (item moves from A to B), that makes us use “to”!
    English is very confusing and there are so many “rules” that are not always 100%!

Hi , I come here to say that I’m learning a lot techniques here and your explanation is so clear …. Thank you !!
I’m from Brazil too <3


Dear teacher your the great
please help me for more learning in English language


Hello my best teacher Ronnie! First of all i hope you’re doing well.Really i was confused with these two prepositions”to”and”for”,but now the idea of “TRANSFERRING” AND “BENIFIT” will make an end for my confusion.
What will be the right word to use in the following situation? “The excercice was so complicated(for)or (to) me”.Actually i was looking for the any transferring or benifit but i could not.


    The exercise was so complicated FOR you.

    I think its because FOR here is your opinion (good/bad)??

    Ronnie? What do you think?


      You don’t need to say FOR or TO… You can just say this lesson was so complicated! You don’t need to/for because I know already it was complicated for you because you said it!

        Thank you so much my best teacher Ronnie for your clarification,of course biiiiiiig thank for your sharing too Ms Tiffany,so we can say that there’re many cases we don’t need to use any of them.


Ronnie, nice to meet you :)!
I´m from Brazil but I´m living in Chile due my job and I intend to be here for a long time.
I think you were born TO teach, because you are absolutely easy, clear, dynamic and almost actress. Ah, so beautiful to complete the adjectives! Soul and physical are necessary, right?
Today I was teaching my daughter some lessons of English and it´s was appropriated your lessons mainly about Y and J pronunciations due the problem she has with her Hispanic teachers at her school. Just my two teachers at the college where I´m studying translation from English to Spanish has a perfect speaking, because they have lived in the USA, the rest have a problem to pronounce the words beginning with R,Y and the words as SH, of SHE, SHIP, SHEET, CH etc. It sounds like a TI, you know?
Well, I think you could comment about it if you did not yet.
My best regards to you. God bless you.

    Wow — that is great that your daughter is learning too — I LOVE TEACHING KIDS!!!!!!!!!
    The best way is to get her into English music too!!! I’ve done a lesson on the TH sound.
    Best of luck to you and your daughter!!! What is her name?

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      Hello Ronnie!
      Thanks for your kind words. She loves music and me too!
      I’ll find the TH later in my house, because in my job the videos are blocked. Her name is Giuliana, original from Italy.
      Tomorrow will be my exam and I’m sure that I’ll be take a good mark.

      We keep in touch!
      Canada is my goal to the future.



Thank you so much for this clear and concise explanation.

What about
“The test was difficult FOR me”
“Smoking is not good FOR you”

That’s not really beneficial… :-) Can we also explain it as something that’s not good as well? I mean, can “FOR” also be used to talk about preferences?

Thank you again!!!


    Oops, I think I meant “opinion” instead of preference

    Like the test was might have been easy for someone else, but it was difficult for me.


      Well, i think it will remain the same situation when you say” the test was difficult” or “the test was difficult for me”,and of course as u’ve said,in the 2nd sentence you’re expressing an opinion,so you can begin with” For me,the test was difficult”.
      Once again,we should know that there are some exceptions,and it depends on what the talker focuses on,BENIFIT or TRANSFERRING,For example we can say:”i gave a gift for her”(BENIFIT) and also” i give the gift to her”(TRANSFERRING).


Very nice Dear Madam,
This is new helpful rule that for transfer use “TO” for Good use “For” is i right Madam,
Thanks You Madam for teaching us. Thank Live a Long LIfe i am praying.

Mrs. Ronnie

very good lesson, and thanks a lot. But! can you please check the following examples it they’re correct or not please:

1- I’m learning English to attain my ambition.

2- I’m study hard for achieving my success.

Profile photo of modi4na3oomi modi4na3oomi

    1=ok – But it is more natural to say I’m learning English to get a good job/so I can live in Canada. (or what ever your ambition is)
    2- I’m studying hard to achieve my goals. Or I am studying hard to be successful.

It seems that you’ve used ” to ” for both examples, so are they considered as ” exchange info ” ??

    You can never use to/for = verbing.
    read and learn is a transfer of information = to
    suppose if Bon gives some one else for Fergus. can we use
    Bon gave a gift for Fergus = this is wrong. You would have to say “Someone else gave a gift to Fergus, from Bon.”

I have a doubt… How do I explain the use of TO in sentences like “happy birthday TO you”? Do we use it because we are “tranfering” or “sending” wishes to the other person?



    Yes, because you are sending wishes to someone!!! Great observation!

    When we use the word nice we cannot say “He was nice for us”. We must use TO!

“would you like to have a cup of coffee” is it correct?

    Would you like to have a cup of coffee”. Yes! This is correct!

I feel that (2) is correct.. what is your opinion on this?

    I would say proceed further to process the job offer letter. To use to of for depends on the situation – if you are physically moving to process it , you would say #2. If it was not a physical movement, I would use #1.

I had this grammer problem, but I never thought I would find a page that deals directly with this to & for problem. How cool! good job!
Anyway, I’m still confused with my problem, and I see that you still answer people here, so I figured, why not try?
What do I need to say, basis to or basis for? My context is science (I’m doing a project presentation at my university), but it can be anything.
A simple example: “Math is the basis for physics” or “Math is the basis to physics”? my heart goes with to, it sounds more correct, but I’m not a native english speaker, so I wouldn’t know (I’m from Israel). Thank you so much!


    Basis for.

I had spent a long time trying to understand the differences between “to and for” and you in no time I clear all my doubts. Thank you very much.


Is it… new “to” me or new “for” me?


    You don’t need to say “to me” or “for me” if you are the speaker.
    Ex. This is new. It is hot. It is difficult. All of these phrases DO NOT need “to/for me” at the end.
    You can say “Thats NEWS to me”, when someone tells you something that you didn’t know!

English Grammer for spoken english

Bhupendra Jain

It is important to point our that “to” or “for” will depend on the verb attached to it. If the verb is intransitive, then you use “to”. If it is transitive you use “for”. For example, you say “head for” because “head” is a transitive verb. You say “go to”, because “go” is intransitive. If the verb can take an in/transitive form, you can use either one, but the meaning differs. So, “you come to a conclusion” but you can “come for someone”. Sometone mentioned “call to” (which is intransitive), but takes no preposition. The reason is that “call” asks for an object (me, you, him, her, us, etc) and is transitive.

Hi, teacher now I can say… I know the difference between for and to.
Thank you so much.


Hi Ronnie,

I didn’t read all the comments, so I apologize if I’ll repeat the same question. I go straight to the point: when can I use “to” and “for” with a verb? For example, can I indifferently use the prepositions “to” and “for” in this sentence: “I go to school TO learn (or FOR learning (?)) english. That’s it. My real problem is to understand (or “understanding”?) the function of prepositions (besides “to” and “for”) with the verbs. Thanks. Bye. Vincenzo


    To help you with more prepositions, search the site for “prepositions”. There are many lessons to help you!

b/ “To her astonishment, he smiled,”
and “For more information, call this number.”

Hi Ronnie, tks for the lesson. It was really helpful, although I have a question. Which one is correct?
You should say thank you to her.
you should say thank you for her.


Hi Ronnie,

I have got some new things from this lesson. Great work!.




Hi Ronnie

As you explained in this lesson, when we do some good for someone in such case ‘for’ is used and ‘to ‘is used for transfer.
I bought a bone for my dog is correct but instead of ‘for’, ‘to’ also fits in the sentence ‘to my dog’ . If no can you please explain me.

Thank you

Thanks a lot, your lesson was useful. And what about the expression: Circle the words that are new to you. In this case why to and not for?




Thank you mam .This is what i need for.It’s help a lot…


Thanks a lot


Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for the lesson re to/for.In one word: TO=transferring,exchanging,phrasal verbs with TO,when I say my opinion or what I like or dislike.
FOR= benefit,phrasal verbs with FOR. Am I right?
One more thing:you say that it is not necessary to put to/for me when the speaker says whatever,i agree with you .The problem is that there are a lot of exercises in textbooks where you can choose the prepositions to/for in the sentences and some of them start with “It is important…….me”.or things like this :))and students have to do those exercises:)
Thanks a lot.You are really a very attractive teacher and I “click” on your name quite often:)

Ronnie, Thank very much


Thanks a lot ….


Hi Ronnie! Nice to meet you and congratulations for your great explanation. Well, I’m also a Brazilian guy, but not the one that asked you the To and For. :0) Just a comment, wouldn’t the phrase “I sing ____ you.” fit both? I mean, “for” and “to”, once the sing is the same as talking transferring info but in a singed way? Or in other way I sing to you, but not to your sister. Or another phrase… You don’t sing very well, let me sing for you. Hmmmm doubts… :0)
All the best, cheers from Brazil.


    Yes, you can use “to” or “for”. You can sing TO someone (like a serenade)! Also, you can sing FOR someone (you sing for someone’s enjoyment)!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Thx alot Ronnie

Profile photo of soja soja

teacher, why is ‘sing for’
if we have ‘read to’
isn’t both exchanging info? thanks!


Hi, Ronnie

I heard on the video that you pronunced question like /kwestIən,kwestjən/ or at least it seemed to me (quite clear, though)it was so; my question is basically if I’m right and if so could you please tell me if that pronunciation is from one specific place or is it informal?

Here, in Colombia my teachers pronounce very similar and I’ve always disagreed with that but maybe I’m wrong and they just put into practice what they really heard.


Thank you i like very much how you explain it you’re the best!


I liked this lesson. She was very important for me.


Very helpful. Thanks. One question remains though. I keep hearing on our local transport PA system “this is information to all passengers. …” This always sounds wrong to me (I think it should be “for passengers”). Is there something about whether a noun is followed by a noun (other than a pronoun) or a verb (as well as the benefit issue)? viz “this is information to help passengers” vs “this is information for passengers”? I ask not just because I’m irritated by the PA announcements, but because I spend a lot of informal time with ESOL students trying to help them practise.


    You can use both to or for!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Hi teacher ronnie i just want to ask if my grammar is correct. I’m confused with this two:

Happy day for both of us or Happy day to both of us.


    It’s like the song…Happy birthday TO you!!! So…Happy birthday to the both of us!

Very good instructor! I am over 50+ years and have raised 4 children, I know Proficiency when I encounter it. Thank you very much.


Which one is correct?
#1 This could be an asset for your organization
#2 This could be an asset to your organization

#1 He is an asset to the organization
#2 He is an asset for the organization

Hi there Ronnie. Thank you so much for the video. it helps me to understand better and gives me an idea on how to teach my students too as this topic can be confusing at times. :)

Thanks Ronnie for the wonderful lesson!
I have a doubt if we cry in front of somebody and telling that to somebody else, should I say I cried to him/her or I cried near him or something else.
Thanks in advance!
Have a nice day ;)


Great lesson! Very clear and easy! Thank you very much, teacher!!!


My sentence is still not clearly explained, I think:
This song had a very strong emotional connection for/to me.
Opinion? Please help


    Both for/to me are unnecessary. If you are talking, you don’t need to say either.
    But if you want to emphasize, you can say for me.

Golden Ronnie !!!


Hi Ronnie!!! First you are the best!
I would like to know when I can use for + ing or to + infinitive! I really have issues with that! Pleaseee Help me!!


    You can say thanks for helping me.
    So, FOR +verb+ing.
    Or Thanks to help me = NEVER use verb+ing with to! To+base verb is called “infinitive”.

Hi Ronnie,
I have a question to you. Among 3 sentences below, which one is correct?
1. Grant access to task number 1234 to administrators.
2. Grant access to task number 1234 for administrators.
3. Grant access for task number 1234 to administrators.


Hi Ronnie:
I have a question about: I sing __ you. In your vedio , the answer is for.But I have question about 2 situation. ex:
1.I sing a birthday song __ you.
For means I sing a birthday song “for” you to hear.
2.I sing a birthday song__you.
Can I use “to” express some kind of “direction” meaning? Just like: I sing a birthday song “directly to” you. Hope you could understand my question after so many sentences, ha. Thanks a lot.


Hi Ronnie ,
I have question about the sentence: I sing “for” you. Could I use I sing a song to you to express the “direction” of my song(my voice) is to sing
directly to you? Can you explain this to me ?
Thanks a lot.

Ronnie you are such a good teacher, I wish ( seriously ) you were in my country and in my english class, because I am pretty sure that I will learn A LOOOOT FROM YOU !! .. I wish YOU could help me with this — > I dont understand HOW and WHEN use this ” NEITHER __ NOR ” I wish u could help me.

Juan Carlos

    See my previous comment:

    You may want to watch Alex’s lesson on “either” and “neither”!

    “Nor” is not used a lot in conversational English. You don’t see it a lot in written English either (see what I did there?). It’s like “or”, but used with negatives like “neither” and “not”. So

    – Rebecca has not done a lesson on “either”
    – Emma has not done a lesson on “either”

    becomes “Neither Rebecca nor Emma have done lessons on ‘either’.”

    In casual English, though, “neither Rebecca or Emma” is okay.

Hi Ronnie! first of all I would like to say that your teaching style is awesome, I love it, the way you succeed in capturing the attention of everyone—or at least mine!
now, I need an approval from u. I think in the sentence “I will do that_____you”. we can use both, TO & FOR. The usage depends on situation or context. What do you think?

If that’s possible, I know this lesson was left a long time ago, but that’s the 1st time that i’m watching it. I’m really doubted about he usage of the usage of the prepositions “on” and “at”, but I’m not talking about their basic meanings. When I read a text published by a E. Native speaker i look at them over many times, before sentences, actions and some expressions. Whatever is the sentence they’re ever there. Why are they exactly used to generally?

Hello there Ronnie!
I had a situation in class yesterday around this subject and I’d like to check with you. My student received an e-mail asking if was ok with him to go out for a business dinner in a certain night and the doubt was around how he could answer it, if he should use: “for me is fine” or “to me is fine”. I told him neither options I would use “with me it is fine”, instead. And then I got myself thinking about it and what about if I use: “as for me it is ok” can please help me in these one, please? thanks,

Hi Ronnie, I have a question about “for” and “to”.
3. Bob gave a gift _____ Fergus.
Why this sentence use “to”? I thought the gift is benefit for Fergus, I am a little confused .

Profile photo of Fannie Fannie

I Check this sentence on website, I think why use “to” because “give”, that means transfer. If use “buy”, it should be use “for”. Am I right, Ronnie?

Profile photo of Fannie Fannie

What about the difference between to and with.
Which sentence is correct?
According to the specification. Or according with the specificatio.
Somebody told me the second form doesn’ t sound English.
So, which one is correct?

hi ronnie
i’d like to know why i have to use “to” with this question at the quiz (Bob gave a gift _____ Fergus) isn’t it something good for anyone to have a gift?

Profile photo of Abdelrahman Abdelrahman

Hi Ronnie, I’m living in the UK, but I still confused in some cases. For example, I often hear “This bus is for Camden Town”. Which is completely against what you described here… I am not a native speaker, obviously, and I can’t decide that the guy who says that is actually using the langue in a bad way. Or in some cases it’s acceptable to use “for” for directions… Or I’m in the woods, and I misinterpreted the situation.

Profile photo of roki68 roki68

    True!!! I have been to UK and on the train they often say: This train leaves for ______. Confusing….

“I sing for you” has about 389,000 results in the Google search. “I sing to you” has about 430,000 results. So, singing is more ‘transfer’ than ‘benefits” :-)
I guess, in most cases, both ‘for’ and ‘to’ might be correct depends on meaning.

Following To = transfer and for = benefits…

Many people told me this sentence is correct: “We are leaving in January for New York”, but I think that following your explanation should be “to”. We are transfering our bodies to New York. Except if I analyze this sentence as we are LEAVING for New York which give me an idea that it is a benefit?
