For "He's best to do that"

I mean "He's better off doing that"

But I heard an american say "He's best to take this route, right?" Is that not correct an slang?

Thank you
In stead of copying speech patterns, it may be more worth for you to understand English better by learning grammatical structures and grammar. Better off to take vs better off taking = to infinity vs partciple. Which one to use depends on the context.

Ah, I see what your intent was. Yes, I suppose 'He's best to do that' is possible. It seems to me that what I hear is 'It's best he do/does that', however.

Hello Mr Micawber,

I had just one question,

Would you say:

Walk as far as you can to the end of the platform before the train pulls in

or

Walk as far back to the end of the platform as you can before the train pulls out.

Thank you
It depends on whether the train is coming or going, of course. I usually walk as far as I can toward (not 'to') the end of the platform before the train arrives.
