We can use the infinitive with 'to':

  • after some verbs, e.g. 'Are you waiting to see me?'
  • after some adjectives, e.g. 'His accent is really difficult to understand.'
  • to give reasons for actions, e.g. 'We went to the shops to buy some dinner.'

Hello Katalin,

The task appears to be working fine to me. Remember that to check your answers you should click 'Check answers', and to see the answers you should choose 'Finish'.

This sort of problem is usually resolved by installing or updating the Flash player on your device. Please try that and if it doesn't work, let us know so we can investigate it further.

Hi farahvah,

We are aware that users in some countries, including Iran, sometimes have problems accessing the videos. There is a second link headed 'Can't see video? Click here!', which you can find under the main video window. Try clicking on this and it may solve your problem.

I like this series, because both Ashlie and Stephen are humorous. Having a sense of humor is important.
