    Smile Go to toilet & go to the toilet

    Hi,

    My teacher told me that 'go to the toilet' is different from 'go to toilet'. They mean two different situations. However, when I checked with 'Common Error' published by Longman Publication Limited, it says 'go to toilet' is wrong. Would you tell me the correct answer?

    In the UK, many young people are using 'go toilet', which is a new form, as yet unaccepted.
