Weekly Grammar Tip: to/too/two

What is the difference between ‘to’, ‘too’, and ‘two’?

TO implies direction or action, for example: ‘I am going to Paris’ and ‘I want to eat chocolate’.

TOO is another way of saying ‘in addition’, for example: ‘I am going, too’ and ‘not only is he cute, he’s intelligent, too’.

TWO is the written form of the number 2, for example: ‘I received two books for my birthday’ and ‘there are two ways to drink Shiraz – from the bottle or from a glass’.

Fergal is going TO the park and Fern is going, TOO. The TWO will have a lovely time!
