    just 3 questions

    what's the meaning of "to" in the statment underneath
    it takes lots of things for me to drop "to" how i would be feeling.

    and the meaning of "though" in the end of a sentence
    i don't think it works though
    i know even though as same as although when used in the beginning of a sentence
    but it seems to me "though" in the above sentence has no exact meaning
    could you please tell me!

    Re: just 3 questions

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    First question:
    Sorry, can't help you.

    Second question:
    Though = But, however
    It's a good idea but I don't think it works.
    It's a good idea, however, I don't think it works.

    Although has a different meaning.
    Although it's a bad idea, I think it works.

    It actually worked although I was sure it wouldn't work.

    I hope I could help you a bit.

    Ah and yes, even though seems to be similar to although.
