    I have a few questions? Just checking to make sure.

    What is the difference between to and too?

    When do I say they or their?

    What’s the difference between wont and want? I know when you use a negative; want is to follow.

    Has, had, and have—What are these word called?
    I know the difference. I know “had” is past tense and has and have are present. Is that right?

    What’s the difference between wont and want? I know when you use a negative; want is to follow. "Won't" = will not; Want = desire something.

    Has, had, and have—What are these word called? verbs.

    I know about to/too/two. My question is when to use you to or too. Does too means to add or also? That’s what I mean.

    The question about has, had, and have was not asking if they are verbs, but something else. I thought they were called something else. I’m not talking about verbs. I know they are verbs, but I thought they were called something else.

    This is supposed to be a forum to help people out. There is no need for insults on whether I went to school or not. If you do not have anything positive to say, don’t say anything at all!

    Re: I have a few questions? Just checking to make sure.

    Two is only used to mean the number 2.

    Too can mean also (I want to go, too) or very (I am too tired to work).

    To is all other meanings and uses of "to."

    The verb to have has many uses in English, look here:
    have - Definitions from Dictionary.com

    You are probably thinking of how this word is used as an auxiliary verb.
    An auxiliary verb combines with a form of another verb called the past participle to create what is known as the perfect tense.

    I saw your mother. (simple past)
    I have seen your mother. (past perfect)

    This, of course, is a very simplified explanation. Please let me know if I'm on the right track and I (or one of the other teachers here) will be glad to give you more information.
