    smile to sb

    From then on, I no longer bowed my head but began to smile to my classmates.

    This sentence is taken from a China's classroom test paper and the article is clearly written by a Chinese student. I thought we should say 'smile at sb' rather than 'smile to sb'. Am I right?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, smile "at classmates" is correct in this sentence.

    But you can give a smile to your friend, also.
