To and too

In the quiz question on Facebook, the correct answer is ‘too’. The words ‘too’ and ‘to’ are often confused in Dutch. Here is a short explanation of their translations.

‘Too’ means ‘te’. For example: Don’t eat too fast = Eet niet te snel

‘Too’ also means ‘ook’. For example: Anne is a good teacher too= Anne is ook een goede docent


‘To’ means ‘naar’. For example: I am going to school = Ik ga naar school

‘To’ also means ‘om’. For example: I’m asking you to read my blog = Ik vraag je om mijn blog te lezen
