Assunto:  Go or Go To?
 
Mensagem: 

My guess is:


I need to go to work. (right)


ou I need to go work. (wrong) "but I need to go home"

 

Se houver um verbo após o verbo to Go uso ou não uso To?

 

Both are right, albeit they slightly differ .


I need to go help my mother now. (right) = "Preciso ir ajudar minha mãe agora"

I need to go to help my mother now. (right) "Preciso ir para/ a fim de / com o objetivo de ajudar minha mãe agora.



[go + primitive form of verb] is used in commands. "Go tell them what you learned about her."

 

Let's see what others have to say about it as well.




Valeu.....
