Hi Teacher,
I have a litle concern at:He decided to go to Hawaii __________ a relaxing vacation. ==> I chose :having.

Why did he decide to go to Hawaii? ==> Having a relaxing vaction. Is it ok?
THanks Teacher,

Profile photo of dhnguyen dhnguyen

    You must use “to have.” Why did he decide to go to Hawaii? :)

Got 100 :) . Alex, tell me if I use “for, to and for staying” in this sentence which is ” I go the gym ….. Healthy”. Will it consider fine?

Profile photo of Annie Annie

Alex ,why you have given the options for both ” to and for” in quiz , When you already told both are correct to use?

Profile photo of Annie Annie

They started doing yoga “to improve / for improve /for improving ” their health . Can we use any one of them in a structure”?

Profile photo of Annie Annie

    You must use “to improve.” Many students make the mistake of using “for.” You can sometimes use “for + gerund” if it’s a longer action.

      Thank you !

    Any time! Thanks for studying with me and with EngVid. :)

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Thank’s Alex, useful lesson! I’m one of those that use “for” instead “to”. To or for, that’s the question! In spanish we only have a preposition (para).

Profile photo of Jorge Jorge

    It’s okay sometimes for longer actions, and if you follow it with a gerund (verb + ing). However, to be safe, it’s best to use to + base verb in these situations.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

thanks Alex you have a Simple style of education

        Answering your question, I like both ways, Alex. Don’t worry.

        Profile photo of Júlio César L Sousa Júlio César L Sousa

Thank you, Alex, it was very useful.
May you set out some example of ” a longer action” with “for+ gerund”

Profile photo of Hassan ABS Hassan ABS

    Sure! Just keep in mind that it’s more common to use an infinitive of purpose in most scenarios.

    I wear glasses for driving.
    She bought a blender for making smoothies.
    We need a cabinet for storing official documents.
    They use their car for city driving.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Thank you, and hear what I have understood from what you have just laid out.
      The key is that you can use either structure to get the same meaning, on a condition you have to use them in a right order.
      An instance from your lesson
      ” I go to the gym to stay healthy”.
      Mine ” I go to the gym for staying healthy”
      I don’t know if I am right. Please inform me. if you would.

Thanks for your lesson Alex: it was very useful to me.
I have a question for you: does the form “for + ing” have the same meaning than the one you speak about in this lesson? For example: can I say “I’m studying English for improving my job prospects” as well as “I’m studying English to improve my job prospects”?
Thank you in advance for your reply
