    Grammar

    Dear teachers,
    Please read the sentence:

    He nodded toward the corner to where the giant stood.
    Is the 'to' in the sentence a mistake? I think it should be 'He nodded toward the corner to where the giant stood'. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: Grammar

    Hi Jiang,
    I would not use the "to."
    "toward the corner where the giant stood."

    You already have the direct he noddd - toward the corner.
