Hi everyone. I hope that you are all doing great.
Today when reading a comment, I noticed that some members have mistakes when using "hope", especially as a verb.
To make sure how we can use the verb hope, I searched for it.
There is a section in EnglishClub website, where you can search the word you want to look up in the dictionary. Here is the link > Vocabulary. Could you find the part entitled "Online Dictionaries"?
I typed the word "hope" and I was given the following link: Hope
OK, now you can find examples for this word. To pay attention to the example sentences in a dictionary is a good way to learn how we must use a word. So now we can learn through the examples there:
hope (that): I just hope she's pleasant to him on his birthday.
hope for: It wouldn't be sensible to hope for immediate success.
The best they can hope for is to get temporary accommodation.
hope and pray (that): We can only hope and pray that Stephen is alive.
hope to do something: The university is hoping to raise £3,000,000.
He hopes to sell his art to a major museum.
I hope that this post can help you with how to use the verb "hope".
NOW, it is your turn to make sentences with the verb "hope" to make sure that you have fully learned how to use it correctly.
Have a great time
