Is it a grammatical mistake to use "to" in the sign that reads "Lady Chantal YAYI AND ALL BENIN WOMEN WELCOME TO US FIRST LADY RAURA BUSH?"
Should it be ""Lady Chantal YAYI AND ALL BENIN WOMEN WELCOME US FIRST LADY RAURA BUSH?"

Hi,

Is it a grammatical mistake to use "to" in the sign that reads "Lady Chantal YAYI AND ALL BENIN WOMEN WELCOME TO US FIRST LADY LAURA BUSH?"
Should it be ""Lady Chantal YAYI AND ALL BENIN WOMEN WELCOME US FIRST LADY LAURA BUSH?"


Yes. Don't say 'to'.

Thank you Clive.

And the English in the left sign sounds far from perfect.

How to improve it? How about "...thank American people?"
Does "...thank American people at large" work?
Hi,

It could say '. . . thank all the American people' or ' . . . thank all Americans.'
