Infinitives

We can use infinitives to say why we do things.

I use LearnEnglish Kids to practise English.
He's studying to get good marks in the test.
We eat fruit and vegetables to be healthy.

How to use them

Use the infinitive with to.

'Why are you washing the car?' 'To help my parents.'
'Why is he going to Egypt?' 'To see the Pyramids.'
They went to the cinema to see the new film.
She went to the park to play with her friends.
