Simple question:

1. The website helps me learn English.
2. The website helps me to learn English.
3. The website helps me learning English.
4. The website helps me to learning English.

Are all of the above correct except the last one?

Thanks.

For the third one say, "The website helps me in learning English." You are right. The fourth is not used.

Thank you both, I think the first one is the best. BMO

You're welcome. The verb "help" is one that can take a bare infinitive or a "to" infinitive.
