    Default Move to anywhere???

    Hi everyone,
    I'm a teacher of English. However, I'm so confused now. Should we say 'move anywhere' or move to anywhere'???
    Please help!!!
    Many thanks!

    "To" (in this context) expresses direction or motion towards a certain point, but "anywhere" isn't a particular point or place - it represents any place or direction.

    "Move anywhere" sounds correct to me.

    He won't move anywhere near the town centre

    She's buying a new house; she can move anywhere because she has lots of money.


    However I'm not a teacher and I'm not 100% sure that I'm right.

    Colloquium,
    Thanks a lot.
    Actually, I have the same idea. However, yesterday I had an argument with my friends and they tried to persuade me that 'move anywhere' means that move something to somewhere.
    Thanks again!
    Have a nice day!
