    using on, at,to and for

    Hello,

    This my first post and I am still confused with the basic English.
    Can you help me to understand the correct uese for on, at, to and for.

    I checked many grammer books and did a lot of practice but still confuse.

    for example:

    1. I wrot at the top ( the correc ueses for/to) which one correct using for or to.
    2. for me and to me. give me example please.
    3. congratulation on your acceptance / or at your acceptance.
    Thank you in advance

    Hi Ebtehal,

    1. “For me” / “To me”

    In some cases, and with some verbs, there is little difference in meaning:

    Bring, leave, play, play, write, sing, send, etc.

    In other cases and situations, there is a clear difference. For instance:

    - He brought a piece of fruit to me (he went to a fruit store and bought the piece of fruit to me).

    - He brought a piece of fruit for me (I was very busy to go to the kitchen, and he brought it for me).

    2. Congratulations "on"

    Regards,

    José Manuel Rosón Bravo
