You don't put an article a or an in the phrase go to?

1. I often go to casino

2. He likes to go to casino/casinos

3. He likes to go to a casino.

Q2) Is I go to school at 7 the same as the examples above?
Hi Moon

You need an article for sentence 1, unless "casino" is a proper noun (name).

For example, "Casino" is the name of a chain of supermarkets here in France. In this case, Casino is capitalized. So, you could say "I go to Casino twice a day for fresh meat and vegetables".

But if you are speaking about a "generic" gambling hall, you will need to use an article.

For example (sentence 1):

I often go to the casino.

I often go to a casino by the lake.

I often go to a casino in Las Vegas.

I often go to the casino just outside of town

Sentence 2.

He likes to go to the casino in Harleyville. (perhaps the only one in that town)

He likes to go to the casinos in Las Vegas. (there are hundreds)

Sentence 3.

He likes to go to a casino in New Haven, but I don't remember its name.

Hope this helps,

John
Hi, John.

Thank you for systematic arrangement for the questionEmotion: smile.

I still wonder how to treat no article in I go to school at 7 . (I don't think school is a proper noun, one you introduced)

Sorry Moon, I didn't fully answer your question.

I go to school at 7 is just like "I go to work at 7" or "I go to grandma's at 7" . No article is needed nor would it be correct to use one is such a sentence.
Hi,

I just ran into the complicated structure (for me) that you used. "
JohnParis No article is needed nor would it be correct to use one is such a sentence.
I get confused in this sentence after "nor ...."
Could you explain this sentence please?
Hi,

I'm not a native speaker but I'll give it a try.

"Casino" is a noun here so we should put an article "a", unless it means like this. (casino=gambling)

I'm not sure if "I often go to casino." (casino=gambling/games) is like "I go to school." which means (school = study)

I go to casino very often. ( I gamble a lot)
I go to school everyday. ( I study "at school" everyday)

Pls. teachers correct me if my understanding serves me wrong.
Thanks!

What about this?
I know context is important but I ask some questions.

1. He hit it rich at the casino. (Does this have more than one interpretation?1) the casino he goes often 2) random one
2. He lost his shirt at the casino. (Does this mean the reader/lisner know what canino "he" went to?)
3. The woman is in a casino. (Does this mean a casino in general?(one of many that we don't know)
The parking is at the back of casino

The parking is at the back of the casino.
