Student or Learner
I am thoroughly confused about the usage of these words. Do we say
I am going to Sam s party
I am going for Sam s party
Hello Sandy, welcome to UsingEnglish!
If you want to express "motion towards", you use "to":
1. I am going to Sam's party tonight.
If you want to express "purpose", you use "for":
2. "Why are you going to Manchester?" "I'm going for Sam's party."
However, the meaning in #2 is much less common than the meaning in #1.
All the best,
