    Troubling prepositions

    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 folloeing 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.
