    skate

    But I want to go skating at the park. Do you want to come?
    But I want to go to skate at the park. Do you want to come?
    But I want to go for skating at the park. Do you want to come?

    Which sentences are correct? And what are the differences in meaning between them?

    Re: skate

    1 is the most natural and it's grammatically correct.
    2 is grammatically correct but less natural.
    3 is grammatically incorrect.

    You might hear "I want to go for a skate in the park".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: skate

    I think they are all a bit odd with "But".

    Re: skate

    I managed to completely overlook that! I was reading it on my rather small phone screen so I just assumed they were numbered.

    Why 3rd sentence is incorrect? What is the grammatical mistake in 3rd? I think Indian use 3rd one commonly.
    Are below written sentences correct?
    I want to go playing...
    I want to go studying...
    Thanks again.
