    not only but also

    My sister wants to see me. She wants to stay with me.
    My sister wants not only to see me but also to stay with me.
    Is this sentence correct? Can we bring to before not only?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Both sentences are fine, no, you can't really put "to" before "not only" in the second sentence. Also , I think that it is better with the comma after "me".
