    Hope

    Please could you tell me the difference & if what's better between:

    I hope that I live in London someday (I really don't like it)

    I hope to live in London someday.

    Thanks

    Re: Hope

    Welcome to the forums, PFS01.

    You don't like the first sentence because it's ungrammatical.

    The second is fine.

    Oh, I was wondering why you'd hope to live in London if you really didn't like it.

    by <(I don't like it)> I meant I didn't like the sentence construct ... I just could not come up with a reason ... anyway thank you. иии Lanugage is ambiguous at times!!!
