also for future reference.

want - You want a new pair of shoes
won't - I won't go swimming in Alaska

then - I went to the store, then I met with my friends.
than - Liv is prettier than Cameron Diaz.

too = also
for example: I like you too, OR, I like you also

Too also means like excessive, such as, "too cold"

too
I. In addition; also: He's coming along too.
2. More than enough; excessively: She worries too much.
3. To a regrettable degree: My error was all too apparent.
4. Very; extremely; immensely: He's only too willing to be of service.
5. Informal. Indeed; so: You will too do it!

You will too do it! hehehe amused me..

I've also got a problem! Could you help me??? :blush:

Which one is correct: go on  holidays or go for  holidays?
And why?
Do you put comma before 'but'?

Another thing - does anyone of you know someone who is attending Oxbridge at the moment or attended it (not like 50 years ago, you know)? If so, could you ask that person if they wanted to be me penpal ? :P  Yeah, I know, not correct (that 'me'), but it's just a digression.
That was the first thing I said to the dialogue coach. I didn't care if I sounded as if I came from Poland or wherever, but I did NOT want to come off sounding like THE COUNT from Sesame Street! ~ Richard Roxburgh

hmmm, you should really say 'I'm going to', but 'I'll leave for' is also appropriate, if I understand you correctly. For example:

'I'm going to Berlin on Saturday morning.'

'I'll leave for Berlin on Saturday morning.'

both are correct. :) but 'I'll leave for...' means more like 'I will leave my house on' or 'I'll get the train/plane/bus on', you get me? It's talking more about your actual journey to Berlin, rather than the fact that you're going there.

Aye, I guess this especially works for longer journeys, or journeys where the goal is a bit vague. We'll leave for the West.

Isn't English beautiful? :D
