    Cool learning a language

    Hello!

    Can you tell me is the following sentence is grammatically correct please?

    Is "to do " optional here?

    "Learning a language is a hard thing to do."

    Cheers

    Will

    If you're going to use "a hard thing" then yes, it is. However, you could just say "Learning a language is hard."
