    Face to face

    Hi,

    Is "I want to talk face to face to you" correct?

    Re: Face to face

    It's unnatural.

    Say either 'I want to talk face to face with you' or, better, 'I want to talk to you face to face'.

    Re: Face to face

    Thanks. Which preposition is common with the verb "talk"? Is it "to" or "with"?

    I want to talk to/with you.
