The Key to… 关键是
There is a sentence “Theto avoiding cancer is to have an overall healthy lifestyle.” Can I say “The to avoid cancer is to have an overall healthy lifestyle.”?
In the phrase “Theto …” the word ‘to’ is a preposition. It’s not part of a verb infinitive.
Prepositions are followed by nouns. Therefore is ‘avoid’ possible or must it be ‘avoiding’?
Today Li and Callum talk about nouns, verbs and gerunds to help answer this question.
