    Which is better?

    Hello, teachers.

    Do the following all have the same meaning?

    1. Mr. Smith often says he has more to learn from his students than he has to teach them.

    2. Mr. Smith often says he learns more from his students than he teaches to them.

    3. Mr. Smith often says his students teach him more than he does them.


    Thank you very much for your help.

    Re: Which is better?

    The meaning's the same in all three, but your 2nd sentence should read "Mr. Smith often says he learns more from his students than he teaches them." You don't need the word 'to'.
