Sentence: I'm asking for nothing better than for you to pass your upcoming French

Hi Alan,

Is it correct to say the following sentences?

  • There’s nothing I would like more than for you to pass your upcoming French examination. (This does mean that I really would like him to pass, doesn’t it?)

In another dictionary I found the following:

-I’m asking for nothing better than for you to pass your upcoming French examination.

The latter seems a little odd, but what I also want to know is, are these grammatical constructions correct?

Thanks

Hi Marc,

They both sound fine.

Alan
