    "It is a modern Marxist party committed to democratic socialism.'
    I wonder what this 'committed to' means.
    Thank you.

    Hi there : I'm not a native nor a teacher

    But let me try defining what "committed to" means:

    If you are committed to something/ to do something you are willing to work very hard at something:

    eg:-Anne is really committed to enrich her students' knowledge.


    Cheers

    If you are committed to something you have made an investment of some sort. "It is a modern Marxist party committed to democratic socialism" means that the party in question is trying to bring about a system of democratic socialism (whatever that is).

    Try:
    I am neither a native speaker nor am I a teacher.

    not, or:
    I am not an orange or an apple.

    I am not a native speaker or a teacher.
