    A commonly confused area is before nouns and verbs:

    I stopped for a coffee. (noun)
    I stopped to have a coffee. (verb)

    Please note my corrections to your post. Remember to capitalise proper nouns.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
