    honour to or for me

    Good morning,
    is it correct to say either "It is a real honour to me..." or "It is a real honour....for me" or both?
    Tank you for your help,
    Luigi

    For.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "He's an honour to his family and his country."── quoted from
    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/honour_1

    Is it also correct to use "to"?

    Re: honour to or for me

    Yes, in that sense. Only 'for' works in the original.
