I have a question about the use of "to be + infinitive verb" in the bellow sentence that make me confused.
What I'd like to do in this session is give you the opportunity to ask questions on writing the dissertation ... requirements, milestones . . . who to see when you need help.
Is the use of "is give" correct here? I have never seen this before. I think it must be "is to give" or "giving".
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
Thank you, Grumpy
Is this mean that "to" necessary grammatically?Dropping the "to" in this way is very often used, particularly in spoken English, and is quite correct.
