When do I use too vs. to?

Thank you very much.

Hi guest,

The "too" is always an adverb, and has meanings of "excessively" and "also". Whereas, the "to" works as both adjective and adverb. Let me show you some examples of each.

Jimmy's car runs too fast for me to catch up with wiith mine.

Jimmy's Dad is a professor, and Jimmy wants to be a professor, too.

To be, or not to be, that is the question.

I go to school every day.

Hope it helps.

what about in the sentence "Is there anyone you would like to acredit your succes to?" or "Is there anyone you would like to acredit your succes too?" Which one is it?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Is there anyone you would like to credit your success to?

too means 'as well' or 'in addition'.
I believe "to" is being used as a preposition in the sentence, and a sentence should not end in a preposition. Therefore, the sentence should read "Is there anyone to whom you would like to credit your success?"
Sentences end in prepositions all over the place. The advice that they should not is a very old prescriptive rule. Often, the attempt to apply the "rule" results in all sorts of awkward to which's and for which's, making the "improved version" worse than the original with the preposition at the end!
