Lesson 19 Where are you going?

To speak English, you need to learn how to use the preposition (前置詞) “to,” but you also need to know when not to use it.

Joanne: What are you planning to do tomorrow, Yasuko?
Yasuko: I’ll go to shopping in Ginza.

What’s wrong here? Well, we go “to” places (“I’ll go to Ginza”). But shopping is an activity, not a place, so Yasuko will “go shopping in Ginza.” We can also go fishing, go drinking, and go surfing. So remember that you can’t go to shopping but you can go shopping in many places. See you next time.
