nice lesson Adam…
Do you mind telling me the difference between these two sentences. (They seem to me pretty much same in meaning)
1) Can you run down to the market for getting some bread?
2) Can you run down to the market to get some bread?

Aleesh

    I’m not really sure which sentence is correct:
    -They seem to me…..
    -They seem for me….. or maybe
    -It seems for me?
    Probably , the fourth possibility is really good :D

    kroy

      I use “seem” + “to”.

      morfik

      Hi Kroy,

      ‘It seems to me’ is the correct form. After seems you would only use a ‘to’ to suggest a subjective opinion.
      Otherwise, you can say ‘it seems too difficult for him (to do)’ which implies that ‘it seems (to be) too difficult for him…’

      Hope that helps.

      Adam

        hi Adam! :) thank you for your lesson! ^_^
        i have just read this sentence on FB. “reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”
        :/ i thought it was “for” instead of “to” :/

        trum

        hi adam, i have some questions? what is correct;
        congratiolations to both of you…or
        conratiolations for both of you…tnanks!

        eimra

        nice lesson. splendid explanation, I have no questions. Listening to your speaking I love the language more and more..thank you so much.)

        armine3465

          Where are you from?

          Marcio de Moraes

          you are right armine it was a nice lesson i was on a confuse to get the difference between For and To .

          magedmashhoor

    Hello Aleesh. 2nd sentence is correct, whereas 1st one is incorrect. Since getting some bread is a specific action, we must put it as can you go to the market to get some bread.Here are examples for general actions for which we can use two ways you mentioned before.
    1. This heater is to keep/ for keeping the plants warm in winter.
    2. This machine is used to cut/ for cutting plastic.I think this will help you.

    oshada

      Good answer Oshada.

      Just wanted to mention that in sentence 1, the ‘used’ is understood but not necessarily expressed.
      :)

      Adam

        ‘ please forgive me for missing our an yesterday ‘ correct ỏ incorrect

        dainguyen1502

      Thanks…your reasoning sounds good and valid!

      Aleesh

    Hi Aleesh,

    The answers you’ve received from the others are correct. I’ll just add that you want to use ‘to’ with a verb and ‘for’ with a noun. In that case you would say:

    1) Can you run down to the market for some bread?
    2) Can you run down to the market to get some bread?

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

      Thanks Adam for your kind response…but your additon that says “use ‘to’ with verbs & ‘for’ with nouns” has really raised another query in my mind which compels me to ask you a questoin.
      Isn’t “getting” a noun (gerund-a type of noun)?

      Aleesh

    the both sentences are correct. thts about the english style .

    ihwan

    Aleesh, take out the verb GETTING and let only the noun.
    TO GET in infinitive tense say exactly the same FOR SOME BREAD, in different way.

    Look at this:
    I GO OUT TO RUN
    I GO OUT FOR RUNNING
    The verb is the last word of the sentence.

    Marcio de Moraes

    I also need to know… because I did wrong.

    trcosta13

      If you do it wrong imagine me

      Andderson

    nice lesson Adam. it was clear that I should use to get some bread because I used to say it like that but I don’t know the difference between them.

    Sarah Ah.

    Rule: TO is used before an ACTION (a Verb or an invitation) or before THE (article). In this example “GETTING” is an ACTION, although when translated it is seen as “EQUAL”, in English the rules are different (as explained before). For this reason, FOR is not used here, but TO. Nice Day!

    ladyzs76

    Use only #2. I think he mentioned why in the video. It’s relating to movement and direction. Don’t ever use #1 because it’s weird to native speakers. Thanks.

    maddiEng

Imagine this situation: you go to the store to buy a computer (to do something) or to steal it. :) but you go to the store for bread (for is used to benefit) or you went to the bank FOR MONEY (because you want to benefit). Does it make sense now? :-) when you transfer something use TO, when you benefit use FOR.

xewax

    Good points :)

    Adam

Thanks a lot Adam.
why the third question’s answer is “for”!?
“arrived” is an action and you is kind of destination!!?
Could you please explain this more.
Thanks in advance

sar.ra16

    This is a “point out recipient” situation when the verb, not the preposition should be concerned. If you substitute “was” for “arrived” and the sentence still sounds logical, you have no action: “Linda, this package was for you…” Hope this helps.

    Lfabian2013

    Hi Sar.ra,

    Lfabian gave a good answer. Think of this:

    ‘This package was delivered to you’ vs. ‘I have a package for you.’
    In the first sentence, you have a destination. In the second, you have a recipient.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Thank you so much Adam.

nguyenhuudo

        WISH YOU ALL THE BEST AND HAVE A ENJOYFUL DAY!

        sona123

          Thanks for all this information, Sonu…India is a country really rich in culture! In Brazil there are many dates to celebrate, but to me the most inportant are Christmas and New Year (in December), Carnival (February) and the “Saint John’s Parties”( June and July)! It’s difficult for me to describe them because I’m not that good in English (yet)! But usually in Brazil we celebrate with much food, dance and prayers! We also use typical clothes in some of these events! Well, I hope you like my reply… Best regards!

          Janilza

          ya i very much liked it but you look like lazy person.

          because you don’t wanna write that much.

          just kidding, i don’t mean it. i mean i just wrote it for making you laugh.

          You know my my real name is SURAJ but SONU is also fine.My family call me ‘SONU’.

          Do you know what does ‘SURAJ’ mean.
          Well, i’m telling you- it means ‘sun’

          SURAJ= SUN

          HERE IN INDIA PEOPLE NAME THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER
          WITH MEANINGFUL NAME [IT’S NOT 100./. BUT NORMALLY]

          what about in your country.

          ya one more thing i’d like to know – what your name mean is?

          and of course have a good one!

          sona123

Well, I’ve got 90 without watching it. I think it’s a quite good mark having in mind that prepositions are not that easy.

Marcelo Machado

Thank you Adam for this lesson.
I got 8 correct out of 10.
:)

mrzahid

Thanks for the lesson. I got 100% correct. But I don’t understand the active voice in one of sentences on the quiz: “Linda, this package arrived for you this morning.” Should it be “..was arrived..”? Please do correct my writing.

Lfabian2013

    Hi Lfabian,

    How about ‘This package came for you.’? Same as arrived but different word (synonym). That is because there is no agent acting on the package. I would however say ‘This package was delivered (to you).’

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

many thanks

khalidse10

During the Vietnam war,people said:{G I go home}I know go is a verb of movement and home is destination,why don’t we say go to home instead go home,please give further explanation.

cuongchung1

    Hi Cuong ta,

    Excellent question. ‘Home’ is an exception because it is not a place, but an idea. “Go back to your country.’, or ‘ I need to go back to my house.’ would use the ‘to’ because these are physical locations.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

I got 9 of 10
the 6th question i thought that after the verb (used)the preposition should be (for) if the word after it is noun and should be (to) if it’s verb
Now i knew that i was wrong
Thanks Adam

Hoda

Another great lesson. Thank you.

englishtime1980

What is the right use of: it’s new to me? or it’s new for me? Thanks

mickeysceme

    Hi Mickey,

    This is a tough one. I can’t say that my answer is definitive, but I’ll suggest my thinking on it:

    It’s new to me– When i am immersed in(surrounded by) a new situation, such as the first few weeks of a marriage, or a recently gained position of power, I would say it’s all so new to me, I don’t know how I should feel.

    It’s new for me– This is when I am active in a new task, that is, doing something new, like learning a new computer program or managing a department I might not be qualified to manage, I would ask those around me to ‘please be patient, this is all new for me, I still have much to learn.’

    hmmm… not sure if the distinction is all that clear. Let me know.

    Adam

      hmm.. not sure
      Your opinion is clear. Please continue this lesson with more sentences. You can repeat the answers from the comments above.
      I really appreciate your explanation and presentation. Please continiue this topic. It is not easy for us.
      Best wishes to you.

      MKJMKJ

      hmm.. not sure
      Your opinion is clear. I really appreciate your explanation and presentation. Please continiue this topic. It is not easy for us.

      MKJMKJ

      Hi, Adam! Thanks for all lessons from you…
      You’re right when you says ‘not sure if the distinction is all that clear’. In my opinion, it’s not clear at all.

      Edinho

      Ronnie has explained this subject using other support to distinguish TO and FOR.

      TO used in case of transference, exchange something.
      FOR use in case of something good or benefit.

      Marcio de Moraes

Thanks Adam for a useful lesson. I got 8/10.

very usefull lesson igot 10 out of 10

ubdshah

I got 5 correct out of 10 :( I was really confused.
Never give up! Thank you Adam :)

Happy04

I have a question about “Mrs.Henry is always nice to us”.Probably “he is nice” is similar to ” he acts nicely”, and is like an action directed to us. (In my language we say “He is nice with us”- I don’t know why, but I am used to it)
Thank you!

arinamg

    Hi Arinamg,

    Not actually sure what the question is :), but think of ‘be’ verbs as equal signs (=). Mrs. Henry is nice— Mrs. Henry = nice. ‘to us’ just suggests who she chooses to be nice to.

    Not sure if I got your gist, but hope that helps anyway.

    Adam

      No.My question was why : is nice “to” us. Because you said that we use “to” to express the direction of an action.And “is nice” is not really an action.But I understand that is like an action directed to us.(It just sounds a little weird to me, because in my language we use “with” in this situation)
      It was more a comment than a question.I hope I’m more clear now :) Thank you!

      arinamg

        I get it :) thanks

        Adam

recepient?you’re wrong.that’s recipient,isn’t it?

tngan19

    Hi Tngan,

    It is recipient. Not sure where the mistake occurred, but it was unintentional.

    Adam

Thank you. I got 9.

youness128

Hello, Adam!
Thanks for your another great lesson. I do really appreciate your teaching methods. But having watched this video, a question occured to me: should we say convenient to\for you. And why?
Thanks a lot.

gustav2

    Hi Gustav,

    Mostly i knowit as ‘convenient for’ you, in that is makes life easier for you. However, convenient can also mean close to you (that is, in terms of distance.) In this case it is convenient to you.
    Your house is five minutes away from work–it’s convenient to you. And your boss allows you to make your own schedule according to the times that are convenient for you.

    Does that help?

    Adam

      Yes! Thank you for your comprehensive explanation!

      gustav2

Thank you for the great lesson:)

nastyaloshkareva

I confused about Used To/Used for :(

nurmala

    Hi Nurmala,

    Used to do
    Used for doing.

    A knife is used to cut vegetables (with).
    A knife is used for cutting vegetables.

    The only difference is that I added the extra preposition (with) at the end of the ‘used to’ sentence, but they mean the same.

    Used to can also mean get accustomed to , or describe a past habit. Many people prefer used for to avoid the risk of a misunderstanding..

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Thanks Adam,
I would like to talk to other people via skype in english. When somebody is intrested please contact me.. rokocoko@o2.pl

GOOD LESSONS

MOHAMED33

Thank you Adam,
your lesson was very interesting.
I got 7/10

Joseph74

I got 9/10 almost perfect.Really useful, thank!

neiinthenet

8/10
The package was delivered _____ the head office last week.
I think I can use “for” in this situation as well because “the head office” is a noun. But why the answer is “to”?
——————–
Thanks Mr.Adam, this lessen is very important for me since I got confused for so many times and I just used them based on what people says before this lesson. So I can refer to this video when I trying to say the sentence next time. :)

ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

    Hi Bian Lei,

    The answer here is ‘to’ because a delivery has a destination, so the ‘to’ shows direction; it’s not an infinitive ‘to’. Also head office can’t receive the package.

    Does that help?

    Adam

      Oh, yeah~ Thanks!

      ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

      It depends, if the the delivered package was from the head office to … anybody or any place, or from any place to the head office.
      ????
      What’s the difference if there is.
      Thanks

      ammm5

excellent class, I just didn’t understand the end, but it’s ok! =D

naiaracarvalho

    WHAT I THINK IS THAT THE MOST NUMBER OF US HAVE NOT UNDERSTOOD IT PROPERLY. I THINK WE NEED TO WATCH THE LESSON SOME MORE TIMES.

    WELL, WHAT DO YOU THINK? PLEASE REPLY OVER MY COMMENT.

    HAVE A VERY GOOD DAY!

    sona123

    Hi Naiara,

    I’m glad it’s OK, but if you give me something more specific, maybe I can help. :)

    Adam

Adam, Could I use both for this answer ?
What did u do to him?
I took his test to/for him.

brunnocezzar24

    Hi Bruno,

    Grammatically, both are OK, but ‘to’ means you delivered it to him. ‘for’ means you wrote it for him.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Dear adam how to use run down & running out in a scentence?

pintuk

    Hi Pintuk,

    Can you please run down to the store for me to buy some milk? We’re running out and we’ll have some guests over later for coffee.

    :)

    Adam

Really nice chapter Dear Adam.Could you please make a video to explain a situation with natural scenery,art works Eg: wood carvings,Hills, including vocabulary.

pintuk

    I’ll see what I can do.

    Adam

      Awaiting your video.Thanks

      pintuk

great!!!!

ILIYAS

thanks a lot for the lesson. I got 90. but I couldn’t understand second question can you explain it?

alikizilaslan

    Hi Alikizilaslan,

    A delivery has a destination. If I say to head office, it means that that is where it went. The package was delivered for you, means someone did the delivering on your behalf.

    Does that help?

    Adam

      thank you so much

      alikizilaslan

Very good!

Muslim(Salyaf)

Great!

wallace

Hi Adam. Do you remember the night…No that was Harry Belafonte!! Do you remember that a century ago I asked you a lesson or a part of a lesson about ‘TO’ as as a proposition and the “ing” form for the following verbs. Like in “I’m looking forward to “seeing” you. May be it would be the good occasion to “learning” us how to make the difference between ‘TO’ as part of an infinitive and ‘TO’ as a proposition followed by a verb with the ‘ing’ form. Please, do it to make me happy :-)

patple13

    LOL. OK Patple, I’ll see what I can do.

    In the meantime, I’ll just say that after the ‘to’ you will never have a verb in the -ing form What you will have is a gerund, or a noun of the verb. If you use to as an infinitive, it will always be followed by a verb. As a preposition, it usually forms part of an idiomatic verb, like used to, admit to, confess to, etc. What this means is that it belongs to the verb that precedes it, not the gerund that follows it. With that in mind, you have to find a list of these idiomatic verbs and remember them (hate to tell people to memorize rules in English, but sometimes that’s just the way it is.)
    The thief confessed to stealing the painting.
    The student admitted to cheating on the test.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Thank you for this website.

thank you

hayder22

It is like ever. Your explanations are excellent.

lanietoc

9/10, the funniest thing is that I could have had 10/10, but I didn’t remember what you said in the vid regarding the special event (q9), and I thought that this should be the other option that I presume, and of course this was wrong, so I had right. :)

I have actually a question concerning “to/for event”. Is it really bad when someone confuses those two? I’ve never wondered about this issue, but when you said “for diner” and “to diner”, I’m a little bit worried about this thing.

morfik

    No worries, Morfik. Subtle distinctions like these, when they come up in spoken English, will clarify themselves pretty quickly, so there is no need to pick them apart too much.
    :)

    Adam

I found this https://books.google.com/ngrams/ when I wanted to compare two similar phrases. In my case it was “the exact same” and “exactly the same”. I do this trick often when I’m not sure what I should write.

Adam, could you test it and tell whether its results are reliable? This might prove useful and be a really great tool.

morfik

    I’ve also used Googlefight in a pinch.

    engVid Moderator

    LOL. Interesting site.

    I can see how it would be of some value, but to be honest, the beauty of English, or any language for that matter, I’m sure) is that it allows you flexibility and range such that you can say the same thing ten different ways and always get a particular nuance out of each. In the case of your two samples, both are equally usable:

    The two paintings looked exactly the same; the forger must be a genuine artist, because he even managed to somehow achieve the exact same shade of purple in his sunset as had the original artist, a key feature that had won the latter so much praise.

    Does that help (or even answer your question)?
    :)

    Adam

      In this particular case, I would use “exactly the same” because I haven’t really seen the other phrase, but you know, sometimes I want to write something, and I know what that would be, but unfortunately I’m not 100% sure, so I need some kind of a guide which can tell me if I’m right. It doesn’t tell me what to write, it just helps me to estimate if this is somehow acceptable and doesn’t sound awkward or something.

      morfik

100 :D

salehmoujtahid

One more question:
Maybe I don’t have problems with for/to in this lesson, but I do have problems with for/to in the following examples:

to/for me, you can do whatever you want.
It doesn’t matter to/for me.
It’s a pretty good idea to/for me.

I think there’s more, but unfortunately I can’t remember what that was. But in these examples, I would use “to”. I know there’s something else. :)

morfik

    I got another example while reading comments:

    “this lessen is very important to/for me”

    morfik

      As I have said before, it’s REALLY confusing the use of TO and FOR! hehehe..

      Janilza

      1)to/for me, you can do whatever you want.
      Think:
      You can do whatever you want to/for me.
      Both are grammatically ok, with different meanings.
      but,
      As to me…— regarding me (as a topic)
      as for me…— in my opinion; what I am going to do
      2)It doesn’t matter to me.
      3)It’s a pretty good idea to me.
      4)It’s important to me— I have a personal interest (a vested interest) in it.
      It’s important for me— it is useful.

      Does this help?

      Adam

        I got the first one. 2 and 3 are ok, I’m using them in that way. But 4, it’s not as that clear as is should, I have to think about it.

        morfik

        Hi teacher Adam, thank u very much for the lesson! but i still don’t get the difference between <> and <>. can I use both of them ? or do they have very specific meanings?

        thanx a lot!!!

        nori.maki

i got 8/10 ,thanks a lot ,adam.

lifter0104

I’m sorry Adam – I have a question to ask. It is very important! Could You tell – if I’ll say:”I dream for You” Will it mean that I was(or am)dreaming about You? And if it is not so difficult the second question: the sentence “if You love to me, You able be with me” is this sentence equals to”if You love me,You able be with me”? Thank You very much! Good lessons!

KATRIN777

    Hi Katrin,

    The correct way would be to say I dream of you, meaning I dream about you. The second one should be if you love me, you’ll be (able to) be with me.

    No need for the ‘to’ preps here.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

thanks a lot Adam.

Very confusing… Sorry Adam :(

Medusa

    I know it is Medusa. The best way to understand t is to see it in everyday use, which is also why I always recommend reading a lot. Eventually, you’ll get a “feel” for it.

    Adam

      LOL Great! One more useful phrase to practise/ for practice (Am I right?!) preps: “get a “feel” for it”.
      If I’m right in your phrase, you’ll benefit from reading ;)

thank u Mrs Adam for ur amazing method i dont know how i would thank uuuuuuuuuu thank u so much

sami45

Hi Adam. How’s everything. Hope you’re doing good.

I’d like to ask what’s the meaning of this phrase that I’ve just heard from the movie hunger games:Catching Fire.

A boy says” People are looking to you”
the girl responds”I dont want anyone looking
to me.”
Here they use the preposition “to” -“look to” instead of “look at”.
What’s it mean?
Thanks

henry19

    Hi Henrique,

    Nice question. To look to someone means to see them as a guide, or a leader. They look to someone for answers.

    A bit of a special context, but now you know.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Thank you Adam!!!

Edilson

think you adam for your efforts.

amine alarabi

I have the following sentence to discuss:

“The first step to creating your repository is to create a base directory for it to live in.”

There were some other similar sentences in the article I’m reading now, but this one seems to have all things that I want to discuss.

“to creating” — I know there’s a geround there, but could we rewrite this part to: “The first step to create your…”? If yes, does it matter which form we choose? I know there’s maybe not the best example because of “create + create”.

The other thing is “to create” (the second part of the sentence). Can we substitute it with “is creating (of) a base…” . If I remember well, there’s also possible to use “is create a base”.

morfik

I got 10!!!

novik.ya

Adam thank you very much :)

Bobby

hey Adam thanks for the lesson & please can u tell me the difference between gerund & participle ? its really hard for me to differentiate them please i need your help to solve them in my exams
regards

asim ali

    Hi Asim,

    That’s actually a huge question. I’ll try to make a video lesson on that soon. In the meantime, remember that a gerund is used like a noun, while a participle (active, present participle) is used like an adjective or an adverb. The participle is a reduced adjective or adverb clause.
    e.g.:

    Smoking is bad for you (gerund–the act of having a cigarette)
    The smoking building attracted the attention of the fire department (adj. participle– the building that was smoking(from a fire)…
    Smoking his first cigarette of the day, Brian started to wake up. (adv part—as he was smoking his first…)

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

Thanks a lot Adam! A very good explanation.
But there is one question: when we show a purpose we should use “for”:
Smth is designed for improving smth,
but correct variant is
Smth is designed to improve smth
Why we use to express purpose in this sentence?
Thanks.

master0luc

I got 10/10 good lesson adam. thanks

Ahmed Sabeh

Hi Adam, I’ve a lesson request could you please make video on “Causative Verbs” like have,get,and make and how they’re used in causative sentences. I hope that you would consider my request. Thanks

Fahim

      Thanks Adam, Yes Alex did very well on the video but you know sometimes it’s difficult to mention all stuff into one video that’s why I requested you to prepare the another one to clear the concept of causative to me and many other studying those having trouble with it.

Hi Adam. I got a question… Can can you explain ‘ we’ re going on holiday nest week. ” and ‘ They ‘be gone to Scotland for a holiday.’ And ‘ Martin is going on holiday to Italy next week” … So why when we use going For or going on Holiday ?
Tks

Symone

Hello, Adam. I’d be interested in a lesson about “fast/quick” and “fast/quickly”. Would be it possible? I don’t know which are the differences among these words. Besides, I don’t know if “fast” can be used as an adverb or this use is wrong. I’ve read different things about this subject (my dictionaries let it) and I’ve got a little mix-up. Thank you for your lessons and for your attention.

Pascual

Usefull lesson! I got 90. When I decided to memorize the difference between “to” and “for” I thought about the idea of moviment: “to” give us an idea of moviment and “for” don’t. Is it correct this way of thinking?

britobias

i got 80 out of 100 thanks mr adam

Miramis

I have seen this in song lyrics(i look to you -whitney houston)
1.i look to you
2.i look for you
which one i correct.

kishan3034

    Good catch! “I look to you” is also correct, but it means something different.

    When you look FOR someone, you search for them; you’re trying to find them.

    When you look TO someone, it means you get inspiration or guidance from them. Usually the phrase is “look to ___ for ___”. However, it’s used less often than “look for”.

10 out of 10! Thank you for this class Adam.

lfrq

Very useful lecture. I made 10 out of 10 without any troubles but i’ve still got some questions to ask…is there any exception? As every language has exceptions I’d expect here the same. So, do we use in english sometimes “to” in a contest where we’d clearly use “for” instead? (after understanding the regular and irregular form I guess that should be all)

brunonero

I got 9\10. thx Adam I have learned a lot of your lessons , keep on

Crystal clear, thnx a lot.

Manny01

honestly I am not understand this video exactly. I am doing this test by my sens.I am use to this preposition regularly. so that I got 90 from 100. Actually I don’t think this is difficult too much,consequently it’s a common structure just use your common sens and you will got it easily.

kun kung

    I definitely agree with you. I did the test by my senses along with my translation skill. Therefore, I got 80 out of 100. However, Thank you to Adam for his attempting to explain its differences.

    Nick J

Thanks a lot teacher Adam! I’ve learned a lot from this video lesson! Hope to see more! Have a happy life! =)

aileenmkho

What about making a written summary of the video lessons, for us to keep a hard copy? Thus we could review, now and then, and if any doubt persists we could ask the questions. Thanks for this brilliant project.

Mehrlino

    For most of our newer videos (which have captions), there is a transcript in the description on Youtube — but often it is too long to fit it all in. I will see about making the full transcript available :)

Linda, this package arrived _____ you this morning.
to
for
Why should we use “for” instead of “to”,is there any difference between “arrive” and “send”?

sunnyhsu

7. Mordechai: “What is this used _______?”
Shannon: “Cutting things. It’s called a knife.”
to
for
used for = purpose, usage

The answer is “for”, but we use “the knife is used to cut thing.”, aren’t we?

sunnyhsu

    Is it because the “Cutting?”
    And what if I use “to cut?”

    sunnyhsu

Hello guys and Professor Adam. please I need your help on this one, Should I say ( open the door to her) or ( open the door for her) ?. As far as I have understood if I say that I’ll open the door to her; it means that I made some move to open the door, but if I say open the door for her; it could be something like: open the door for her! her hands are full of bags.

Thanks!!

Ronnie gave a class explaining this same subject in different way. I think yours complete what she has given.
TO = transference of a thing
FOR = is something good, a benefit for someone

However, there is other situation that you has shown very well explained.
TO DINNER and FOR DINNER
Event Propose

English confuses sometimes because the structure verb+ing after preposition is not a rule.

Hi Adam. I got 90/10. The question that I made a mistake was ” a pack arrived……you. I chose “to” instead of “for”, because the verb arrive is “movement, that´s why I chose “to”. Another doubt is I say ” I wrote a letter for you” or ” I wrote a letter to you”. Please clear me.

Will you give me chat ID to chat with each other..

please! you need to release a one topic on preposition (of). I do not understand it, yet.

Gagan158

Thanks, Adam! You are a good teacher!

OlegNyus

Hi Adam. I wonder if it is possible to use “to” when you are talking about doing something so someone could watch and learn. Like this:

– Can you teach me how to play volleyball?
– I don’t know how to teach, I could play to you, so you could see how it is done.

I know that if there is a reason, not followed by a verb, I could use for: “I play for you” but in this case, I am not thinking about reason, but a movement where I am doing this(from me) to you. like in “I will sing a song to you”.

Vinaum

Hi Mr Adam ! Could you please make video to explain when to use “in” and “at” thank you very, very much.

My question is that why we did not use for in this statement “you are not only pet to us “.

Sayukti

Adam if I put in the phrase:
– “Follows the agenda for you visit in Brazil.”
In this case I use “for” or “to”, because word “follow” indicates motion?

limud

Excellent lesson but I need to practice more. I’m from Peru.
Thank you.

Elizrita

Hello Adam,

Can you make a video about the preposition “TO” and infinitive “TO”? I mean, how do I know when to use the infinitive or the gerund after “to”? For example, He made every effort to help/helping the community. Everyone should make a contribution to protect/protecting environment. So, I confused whether I should used a verb or a noun after “TO”.

Thanks,
Daru

Hi Adam, for the expression “the same to you”, example: Have a nice day Tom, and Tom replies: “the same to you Lisa” , I know this is the correct way because I have heard it hundreds times before, but I was wondering that it matches better “the same for you” based on the rules you have explained, right? Is this an exception? thank you!

AlessandroItaly

Hello, Adam!

I have a doubt! which one is correct:

“get ready to the exam!” or “get ready for the exam!”

Although the second one seems to be the correct option, the first one sounds natural as well.

Thanks for your lessons! I always learn
with you!

amateur

could you teacher explain the difference between these sentences, please? these are :” The package was delivered __to___ the head office last week” and “Linda, this package arrived __for___ you this morning.” you would do me a great favour to understand above rules completely. thanks in advance!

learn to learn

my skype: sergio.martins777 call me!

smart ESL

why i supposed to use “to” with thos qestion at the quiz (Linda, this package arrived _____ you this morning.) i think that (arrived) is a verb refers to a movement so i used (for) not (to)?

btw you are the best (Y)

Abdelrahman

Thanks a lot!!

sunhoek

Hi Adam!

Nice lesson :). I’ve got 9/10. I made a mistake in the third sentence (about Linda) & I still can’t get it why use FOR if there’s an action mentioned. Doesn’t “arrived” include any movement?

Thank you :)))

Hello Adam

I’m new in this course … Like I’m French, it’s a bit difficult to understand the difference between “to” and “for” for some examples:
It’s new to me” means: the situation is very new for me…”It’s new for me” means: there is a something new in my situation (in French, it’s the same translation) Am I right ????
Thank you for your answer and congratulations for this course !!!
PS : Can I change the “picture”? It’s awful ! A picture to scare !!!!

Waed khalifa

10. Jod: “I can’t accept this. It’s too expensive.”
Zod: “I bought it __for____ you because I love you.”

Hi Adam,
Why can we not use “to” in this sentence?
and what is really different between ” buy something for someone and buy something to give to someone?”
if you buy something for someone = are they supposed to give you money back?
if you buy something to give someone = it means that you buy them as a gift and do not need them to give money back to you? Pls correct if I’m wrong. Thank you, Sir.

dukenchik

mariagaggini

Excellent, you are uno of the best teachers in the internet. I got a 100, I use a rule that I detected because I issue was uno of my worst headache.
I detect that a simplier rule in base on your different explanations. You could be use “to” when next phrase talk about a place and give the sense of direction or the nest phrase is a verb (action) and use for when the next phrase is people (or pronoun of person) or thing or situation. Any way… I think that I’m a different person with this… Thank you very much.

I can’t explain what you are like for me.
OR
I can’t explain what you are like to me.
(When the intention is to say, that one cannot say what another one means to him / her.)
Please help!

simba83

    The correct is the second one because you are talking about your opinion, what you think about him o her. But if you use the preposition “for” that doesn’t necessary means that is about your point of view of the situation.

    rossrdrz

      what Do you think, sorry.

      rossrdrz

      Thanks rossrdrz, instinctively I would have chosen this (second) one, too. I only couln’t explain why… ;)

      simba83

        Hi,
        “For me” is to express its effect on you or it’s benefit for you, whether it’s good or bad.

        “To me” is more to express opinion.
        Examples:
        “To me, he did great job”
        If you have a good opinion about someone’s work.
        “For me, he did great job”
        If someone did you a favor

        marcin95

Thank you so much, Adam.

rossrdrz

Hi,
i’ve just watched the video second time. I got 10 out of 10. I’m jubilant. I think i got the point of the lesson.
Best wishes to all of us. ;)

marcin95

The lesson is great! And comments are of great help for me (Am i correct in using prep? I mean comments are useful)!
But I still have question, which one is correct or both:
1 I’ve bought a gift for her
2 I’ve bought a gift to her

Caress

Hi Adam, I have used arrived whit to because it is a motion verb. but my answer has been marked incorrect.
