Hello everyone.

This is the original sentence.

"Don't forget to find new topics in order to discuss with me."

Do you think that this sentence is wrong?

Someone said to me that I had to say like:
"Don't forget to find new topics in order to discuss them with me."

I know that he is not wrong, okay but I think that mine is also acceptable and correct in English.


Do you think that there is an obligation for me to add "them" absolutely?

Thank you very much.

Yes. It should be:

Don't forget to find new topics to discuss with me.

That is a longer-winded way to say the same thing.

Yes it is a long way but my question is about whether there is an obligation for me to add "them" there?

Let's put it at the beginning.

"In order to discuss with me, don't forget to find new topics."

I said like that. Is it incorrect in English?

Jawel"In order to discuss with me, don't forget to find new topics." Is it incorrect in English?

Yes, it is incorrect.

What if the part "to do" can't include object pronoun?

For example, can I say like:
"To go fastly, it is the best car which has been very well-designed." ?

Jawelcan I say like:"To go fastly, it is the best car which has been very well-designed." ?

No, not at all. That is about as far from native sentence structure as you can get and still be roughly intelligible.

Are the problems about the base of my sentence?

For example, my British teacher said that the following sentence is correct and natural in English.

-> To reach high speeds, it is the best car which has been designed by BMW.

According to him, this sentence is normal English.

Do you agree with him?

Additionally, something different has come to my mind.

"Don't forget to find new topics to discuss with me" for this sentence, you said it is okay.

Because "to discuss with me" is an adjectival infinitive referring to "new topics".

Well, how about this one;
"Don't forget to find new topics to discuss them with me"?

Most probably, it is also okay because "to" can be used as either an adjectival referring to a noun or an adverbial giving a purpose. I used it in this sentence as an adverbial like "in order to".

So the last sentence is also correct, right now? Do you agree with me?

No, I don't.
