    going for

    Should I say "Going for office" or "Going to office".

    Also, please help me with the usage of both "going for" & "going to".

    "I am going to Delhi", "I am going to Delhi for a job interview" Please don't use "text-speak" and do use capital letters where appropriate.

    Hi Lokesh,
    1.You should use "I am going to Delhi.
    2. You can use "going for" in the below given situations.
    Ex : If anybody asks you on what purpose you are going to delhi, then u can say, "i am going to delhi for attending interview or visiting some places".

    3. You can try "Oxford English Grammer Book".

    Welcome to the forum, Chaku.

    Please state clearly that you are not a teacher when you post responses.

    As bhaisahab wrote, "Please don't use "text-speak" and do use capital letters where appropriate".

    Well, there's many. The teachers in here probably have a good list,
    but here's one called 'When Bad Grammar Happens To Good People'
    which is fun. Or, "English Grammar for the Utterly Confused'.

    Not a teacher
