    the verb "want you to"

    Dear teacher,

    I am looking for sentences / exercises to teach my pupils how to use the verb "want to" in the meaning of I want somebody to do something for me.
    I have been searching on the net, but I haven't yet found anything about this verb.
    Please, can you help me?
    Thank you very very much in advance.
    Kind regards,
    Ans Kwak
