    1- There is no simple rule for it Educador. Step by step you will learn it. You should read a lot.
    2- When you are looking for a word in the dictionary see if it comes with "for" or "to".
    3-Don't say "send it me", say "send it to me".

    Re: ???To???For???

    The sentence with 'send' can illustrate one of the main differences between the two prepositions.

    1. I need the book urgently; please send it to me as soon as possible.

    2. I promised to send Mary this book today, but I have no time to get to the post office. Can you go (to the the post office) and send it for me, please?

    If you send something to me, I receive it.
    If you send something for me, you do it on my behalf.

    Re: ???To???For???

    1 )It's a great pleasure for me to be here.
    2) It's clear to me.
    3) It's hard for me to understand.
    Are these examples correct?
    I know that 3) is a structure "it's *adjective* for *pronoun* to *verb*".Does it work for all the adjectives?
    Also I've been told that sometimes to and for can be equal in some situations, but for shows more personal attitude to what you talk about. Is it true?
