Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

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.'



Language level

Intermediate: B1


When I visit a city for the first time, I like to see the main places and monuments, talk with foreign people, or try to talk and understand them.
I go to restaurants and shops.
I think American accent is usually more understandable than others. Australian accent needs some getting use to. British from London is ok. My accent is an awful french accent but I'm trying to get better.

I like to see the places more famous commented for population to city. In truth, I thing difficult to understand the Irish accents.

When I visit a city for the first time I like to go around for a scenic tour, so as to have a total view of the city.
As for the second question, I don't know.

Hi teacher,
I have a question about the difference between express "It should be here in any minute now"and "It should be here any minute now", is it because here with the word "now" so we don't need to add"in"?


Hello Sophy622,

I'd never thought of it that way, but what you say makes sense. In the end, people say what they say because it's the way other people speak, so there's not always a very satisfactory reason for some expressions.

All the best,

Must we say "fully of people" or "full of people" ? What's the difference ?


The correct form here is 'full of people', which means that there were many people in a given place: the square was full of people.

'Fully of people' is grammatically possible but it would have the meaning 'completely of people'. It's hard to think of a context in which it would make sense. Perhaps something like: The success of our company is fully [the result of the] people who work in it.


Best wishes,

thank you

I love history so i would like to see historical places

I would like to see historical and natural places and also their schools, hospitals, workplaces,restaurants etc. because I wander lives of people who have been living there and sometimes I really have difficulty understanding American accent.
