English Grammar Lesson: Need, Need to, Want, & Want to

Michael Uncategorized 2 Comments

We use “need” + noun (or) “need” + to + verb

  • I need a pen.
  • I need to buy a pen.
  • I need a cup of coffee.
  • I need to drink a cup of coffee

Don’t use a VerbING after need: I need buying a pen

In a similar way, we use “want” + noun (or) “want” + to + verb

  • I want a pen.
  • I want to buy a pen.
  • I want a cup of coffee.
  • I want to drink a cup of coffee

As with need, don’t use a VerbING after want: I want buying a pen.

What do you need? What do you need to do ? Want do you want? What do you want to do?
