    it can help you improve / to improve

    I'm confused.

    What's correct?

    It can help you improve your English
    It can help you to improve your English

    If both are correct, is there any difference in meanings?

    Thanks.
    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.

    Add full stops and both are correct with no difference in meaning.

    Sorry, I forgot about full stops .

    I heard phrase: "How dare you disturb me while I'm doing something."

    Is it correct if I say "how dare you to disturb me"?
    Thanks.

    No. 'Dare' doesn't work that way in direct questions.
