The infinitive with to is used:

1. after certain verbs (e.g. )


2. after certain verbs + question words


3. after (the first, the best, the only)


4. after want, would like, expect, ask, tell +


With the infinitive with to you often express:

1. and (e.g. with want, would like, hope, decide, expect, offer, promise,…)

2. (e.g. I‘d prefer to stay home tonight)

3. efforts or attempts (e.g. try, learn, manage)

In some cases the infinitive is used without to. This happens:

1. after modal verbs (can, should, must, have to)

e.g. They should trust her.

2. after let/make + object

e.g. They should let her go out with her friends.
