Hello,
This is my first post. I am not sure if these sentences are correct: THAT BOOK IS SO BORING TO READ or THAT BOOK IS TOO BORING TO READ.

    Bienvenido al foro.
    Por favor danos la oración original en español.
    Las dos oraciones son correctas pero con sentidos distintos.

    Mil gracias. Ocurre que estoy trabajando el "too" y el "enough", y la respuesta correcta que aparece en mi libro dice THIS BOOK IS TOO BORING TO READ, pero un alumno me preguntó si la otra opción podía ser correcta también?? y me dejó la duda

    Es la diferencia entre demasiado aburrido (too boring) y tan aburrido (so boring). Ni la una ni la otra es más correcta. Depende de la situación.

    THAT BOOK IS SO BORING TO READ or THAT BOOK IS TOO BORING TO READ.
    Just to add to the other posts:

    That book is so boring to read. (I am reading or have read it, but find it boring)
    That book is too boring to read. (I do not want to read it, because it is boring)

    Just like in the Spanish versions Newt mentioned.
