    to help/for helping?

    Dear teachers,

    In the following sentence which one is more near-nativelike?

    "This cook contains information to help/for helping students learn better."

    Thanks.

    There is no such word as "nativelike". Are you sure you meant "cook"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm really sorry. It is "book". By nativelike I mean the most natural use.

    I prefer the first.

    Changing your original post to "more near-nativelike" is not an improvement. In fact, you have made it worse.
