Hi Mister Micawber,

“5. When we arrived, we decided to go for a short walk before sitting down to lunch.”

What’s the difference between “to lunch” and “to have lunch?”

I don’t think it’s a difference problem but a problem about natural English.

Teachers, thank you!

I have a question and I would like you to explain it. My friend said all sentences above are from a letter. So some sentences are used past tense. Here is her answer. Please hep me to check it. Thank you.

  1. Last Sunday, we went out to the countryside to visit my grandmother.
  2. I was always looking forward to going and seeing her.(I wrote: “I look for ward to going and seeing her.” My question is which way is right."
  3. My grandmother likes growing her own vegetables. (I wrote “My grandmother likes to grow her own vegetables”. I wonder which is right."
  4. She never prepares meals without fresh vegetable.
  5. When we arrived, we decided to go for a short walk before sitting down for lunch.
  6. I love walking in the countryside, even though I dislike walking when I am in the city.(I wonder if even though is used in the beginning of a sentence.)
  7. When we got back, the table was laid in the garden for lunch and we begin eating and talking.
  8. I am not used to eating a lot, but everything was so delicious that I couldn’t stop eating.
  9. I managed to eat a great deal more than I intended to eat/ I had intended to eat.
  10. When we all finished eating, we sat around the table and went on talking until two o’clock.

As for the difference between “like to” and “like v-ing,” I think this thread may be of great help.

My try.

  1. Last Sunday, we went out to the countryside to visit my grandmother.
  2. I ALWAYS LOOK forward to going and seeing her.
  3. My grandmother likes growing her own vegetables. (I wrote “My grandmother likes to grow her own vegetables”. I wonder which is right." BOTH ARE RIGHT
  4. She never prepares meals without fresh vegetableS.
  5. When we arrived, we decided to go for a short walk before sitting down for lunch.
  6. I love walking in the countryside, even though I dislike walking when I am in the city.(I wonder if even though is used in the beginning of a sentence.) IT’S CORRECT AS YOUR FRIEND HAS WRITTEN IT.
  7. When we got back, the table was laid in the garden for lunch and we begin eating and talking.
  8. I am not used to eating a lot, but everything was so delicious that I couldn’t stop eating.
  9. I managed to eat a great deal more than I intended to eat/ I had intended to eat. BOTH ARE IN USE, THE SECOND IS MORE ACCURATE.
  10. When we all finished eating, we sat around the table and went on talking until two o’clock.

hello E2,

This is your ‘correction’ of Hoadong’s question - but you will mislead him with this answer unless you correct it further as indicated!

I have a question and I would like [color=green]that you to explain it. My friend said [color=green]that all THE [color=green]above sentences above BELOW are from a letter . So, so some sentences are used [color=green]in the simple past tense. Here is her answer. Please help me to check it. Thank you.
