    Re: Sentence learning

    Hello.

    I'm not a native speaker nor a teacher, but I know that "wanna" is incorrect.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    "I want to watch him playing".

    Which one is correct?
    They are both correct.

    Use only standard English in your posts on the forum. Start every sentence with a capital letter.

    * * *

    A better title would have been 'watch him play/watch him playing'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
