    Two questions

    Hi! I'm new on this website and I have two questions to ask: 1. What is the meaning of 'hold (somebody) tight? 2. A friend of mine wrote on Facebook the sentence 'I'm listening Bruno Mars'. Is this correct? I think he should have written 'listening TO Bruno Mars', but somebody else made a comment and said his sentence was correct because it was used in the -ing form. Now I'm not sure. Could you please clarify my doubts? Thank you.

    Re: Two questions

    Welcome to the forums.

    In the future, please don't combine unrelated questions in one post. Just start two threads.

    1. To hug someone closely.
    2. Your friend is mistaken. You are correct.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
