Hello guy, I have a doubt.

In the first paragraph, where says ...”Can you help me prepare some...”. Should be “Can you help me to prepare some...”?

Hi Israfael,

Actually, both structures are correct after the verb help - with or without the preposition to. The meaning is the same!

I think we all should help others to our work . Without helping mind, we can't make our job well done. A man can't know everything ,he must take help from others. If someone don't help others,then he never gets any type of help from others.So,we have to help others to make mankind well future.

Yes I do help others with their work. When I feel that someone is facing problems with their I always ask them, how can I help or do you need some help either I can do or not. It's not about you can do or not it is about humanity sometime you can't help but your words and your helping nature could make someone feel better and happy.
