    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?

    Re: Go to toilet & go to the toilet

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