    "To" is optional in these examples. Personally, I always use the first form(without to).

    "To" is optional in these examples, so both forms are correct. Personally, I always use the first form(without to).

    BTW, I had been looking for some intermediate level crossword puzzles for a student who loves crossword puzzles, so I was happy to check out your site. I printed one out to see if she likes it, but I think it's a little too easy for her. Do you have more advanced puzzles?

    Thanks for checking it out Suzie. The puzzles are graded from very simple up to regular and irregular verbs. If you didn't print out one of the last puzzles, try that and let me know what your student's reaction is. Thanks.

    Preparing the crosswords is a very labor (mind) intensive job, and, although I have great intentions, I rarely prepare new ones. The time consuming part is thinking up clues for the words. If you want to send me the clues and words I would love to make a crossword puzzle for you.

    Incidentally, I checked out the other site and I also highly recommend it.

    Take care,
