- For Teachers
Today I have a question as to the usage of 'to+verb'.
Here is an excerpt from one of the textbooks (for Japanese junior high school students):
"Kagoshima is a good place to live."
I personally think it should be "Kagoshima is a good place to live in."
My ideas are as follows:
'live a good place' - incorrect
'live in a good place' - correct
'a good place' can't be an object of the verb 'live'. Therefore "in" is required there.
What do you think?
