    please help me dear teachers

    Dear English teachers,
    Would you be so kind answering my questin below? I have a sentence below:
    “What I hate about Monday mornings is having to go back to work.”
    My question is why had there been used is having to in the sentence? What is the function of it? And I assume that tere are two sentences in this sentence . what is the another one?
    And my second question is about thinking in English. I am a Turk that is I am not a native speaker. So first off all whan I hear an English sentence I translate it in Turkish in my mind but tis is not easy and it takes time I have to think in English . how will I achive this? Please explain me dear English teachers….
    Thanks in advance

    Re: please help me dear teachers

    "Having to..." has a function of noun here.

    I guess you understand this sentence:

    What I hate about winter mornings is the cold.

    "Having to go back to work" has the same function in your sentence.
