Ok, so: “to, too, and two” caused some panic with a student of mine, today.
Don’t panic! I said, as he looked at me with trembling eyes.
The words sound the same, but mean significantly different things for you to be able to remember them.
- To is a preposition (mostly) (going somewhere or doing something)
- Too means “as well” and is a magnifier
- Two is a number
Here is a little mnemonic (thing to help you to remember).
Where are you going to?
I’m going to the zoo!
I want to see the animals.
Can I come, too?
Yes! It’ll be nicer with two.
Will we walk there?
No, it’s too far away.
Here’s a nice dictionary entry on “to”
