Do we say "Express love to me abundantly." or "Express love abundantly to me."
I mean my question is about, placement of the indirect object (me) and the adverb i.e. abundantly.

Hello Zeeshan Siddiqii,

Grammatically speaking, both sentences are possible. The indirect object is quite flexible in terms of its position:

Give me the parcel quickly.

Give the parcel to me quickly.

Give the parcel quickly to me.

The first and second of these are the most common but the third is possible.


Your examples are fine grammatically but do not sound like everyday English. You might find this kind of phrase in poetry, for example, but it would sound odd in many contexts.

Thanks for guidance.

I live in Argentina, exactly in Buenos Aires. Beer is the most popular drink here. Government is worried about teenagers are drinking beer younger and younger. Despite we've got many vineyards, we prefer beer over wine. There many advertisements on the TV to appeal people to drink wine but, they don't work.
Buenos Aires has got a little place plenty of Irish Pubs. We love Irish culture. Even we celebrate the Saint Patrick's Day. I've visited a pair of them, a long time ago. I tasted Bitter beer there. The beer was stronger than I used to drink but I liked.

People in my country drink a lot of beer, especially in hot summer days. They also drink ouzo, a traditional drink.
I like beer but i havent try English beer.
I wish i can try one of them when i 'll visit a pub in London!

Hello! I am from Ukraine. It is certainly, we drink beer here, but I do not know and taste British beer ever and I think beer from England should be a good taste
I like beer, and when I'm in Italy I saw an Irish bar, it was an interesting style and a great service.

Hi everyone. My name is Matej allias Matkes. I am from Slovakia. It is the beautiful country in the heart of Europe, especially for me. I have never been in a typical British-style pub. I have only seen them in the TV documents about the United Kingdom, movies or advertisements. I have a plan visit Scotlnad in the near future. I will go and see some bar if I will not forget. I do not know what it looks like a typical bar in the UK but I image older man who comimg from work, seatting at the bar counter a talking abou politics, sports and other topics. I go to nightclubs for young people with my friends wherre we kave a good time. We talk about different things but the main topic is actually study, exams, thesis and what after graduation. Older working men are most often seen in "krčma" - pubs where they spent their leasure time drinking beer as weel as something more powerful than "slivovica" - plum brandy or "borovička" - gin.

If someone could check my grammar and give me feedback would be very helpful. Thanks!

Hello Matej,

Welcome to LearnEnglish and thanks for your contribution. It's interesting to hear about Slovakia and the pubs there.

I'm afraid we don't provide the service of correcting our users' texts, but if you have a specific question about a specific sentence, we'll be happy to help you.

All the best,

Many people drink beer in my country, in fact, I should say that beer and tequila are the most popular here. I like to drink beer, but I don't drink it very often though. I have drunk British beer that is called Bombardier and it's fair to say that it is very good. I've never been in a British pub or Irish pub but I would like go to them one day.

Good morning everybody
Every weekend me and my friends we meet in the cafeteria we stay there about 2 hours we talk about different subjects, sport, politic, culture…… generally we have coffee, tea… or some soft drinks.
There is no alcoholic drink in the coffee of course and we have never gone to the pubs or bar or tasted them.
I think that there are some friends they can’t stay and be funny with each other of them without drinking alcoholic, but this problem is mostly psychological.
