what would you call the "to" that follows "have" for the meaning of need?....what would you suggest to use after that?..the "ing" after a preposition?..i assume for what i understood from all you native english speakers theories that you will need to say "i have to learn"ing" my grammar before i speak...
I think you misunderstood. Have to + infinitive: I have to study; We have to speak English. 'Have (got) to' is classified as a semi-auxiliary verb, and 'to', I believe, is called an infinitive particle'.
In British English, if you were going to use this phrase in a formal letter, you should write 'I look forward to meeting you' , this and similar phrases are often used to close letters.
Informally, it would be ok to use 'I am looking forward to meeting you', but in the UK we would probably use ' I'm ' rather than ' I am ', so it would be 'I'm looking forward to meeting you'
