    toward/towards

    Hi teachers, can you give me some examples using towards and toward?!

    The s in towards is making me confused. When do I use towards and toward?!

    Thanks! :D

    toward mainly US

    They are prepositions. :D

    Do you mean rules about which to use? There are no rules, because they are interchangeable. There can only be a personal or regional preference. :wink:

    Yes teacher, that's what I'm trying to ask. Now I know that it's interchangeable, Thanks MikeNewYork! :)

    However,with forwards\forward, there are times when only one is suitable:

    I look forward to seeing you.

    Here, we wouldn't use 'forwards'.

    It would not be a preposition there. :wink:

    I was just trying to be helpful. What do you say it is- adverb or particle? However, it is connecting.
