    Question my mind needs rest

    can you say "I go to the shcool" and "i go to shopping."
    i have always thought this was bad grammar but a esl teacher is telling me that in certain circumstances it's ok is this true?

    Default Re: my mind needs rest

    I go to the school is okay, in the right context.
    A: I see you take Bus 92 every day. That goes to the school and the mall. Where do you go?
    B: I go to the school.

    Also, I go to the school that is on the corner of Main and Adams.

    I go to shopping doesn't seem correct in any context.
