I understand how to use "either...or", but this sentence puzzled me:

- I want to travel abroad as an exchange student, but I don´t know if I will go either to the USA or to England.

Is the use pf either/or correct?


(I myself think the either isn´t correct in this case. It should be: and I will go either to the USA or to England, but not "I don´t know if I will go either...) What do you think?

I think it unnecessary. Your versions are better than this one. ;-)

I agree with you. As it is written, the choice is not between England and the US, it is between those two and somewhere else. :wink:
