    Troubling prepositions

    Hi!
    Could you tell me if the underlined preposition is correct:
    1."Drop the letter "a" in "are"
    What's the difference between
    2.I keep on learning myself...
    3. I keep learning myself...
    Are the following correct:
    4.We shall be glad to accept your dinner invitation at the Chef's.
    5. I look after people who are ill or injured in a hospital.
    How should I rephrase the last one so that students don't infer that people are injured in a hospital?
    Lots of thanks,
    Angela T.

    1 --- OK
    2/3 --- you can`t learn yourself/ you can teach yourself
    5 --- I look after people that are in hospital( You don`t normally go there unless you are ill or injured)
