    Question

    Hello professor,

    I have a question about when I should use "to" and when I should use "for". For example which is correct of these two expressions?

    I bought a car for her
    I bought a car to her

    or

    It is important for me
    It is important to me

    Re: Question

    I bought a car for her I bought a car to give to her OR I bought a car on her behalf.
    I bought a car to her BUT "I brought a car to her" = I transported/drove a car to her



    It is important for me "for me" = "Getting this job is important for me" >> Getting this job affects my future or my expectations or my career.
    It is important to me "to me" = "It is important to me that you read this letter" >> It matters to me personally that you read this letter.
