Student or Learner
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.
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.
