Hola;
¿Qué frase es la correcta?

1. A very magic place to live unforgettable experiences
2. A very magic place for living unforgettable experiences

"Un lugar muy mágico para vivir experiencias inolvidables", quiero decir ;)

Gracias!

    Qué interesante...
    Could you tell me the sense or meaning of the word "through" in this context?

    Thank you both!

    I'm not really sure, "living" on its own just doesn't sound good here.

    Hmmm, I see...

    What would you say about this:
    I use this cloth to clean the car
    or
    I use this cloth for cleaning the car

    Does "cleaning" sound good on its own here?

    Cleaning on its own is good, but I'd actually pick "to clean" there :)

    :confused:

    I think I'll choose "A very magical place to live unforgettable experiences", since I cannot get the sense of "through" in your sentence (although I like the construction :))

    Thank you

    I don't really know how to explain it, it just doesn't sound good.

    You should open a thread about it in the English Only forum.
