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.

hope  that this post can help you with how to use the verb "hope".

 

Challenge:

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

:)

@Laton

Wow! Such a twisted sentence! Well, I think hopes are better to be simple and plain in order to be granted soon, with much ease!! ;) 

Anyway, thanks for adding fun to the challenge.

Have a great time

:)
