Verben mit ‘zu’ (Verbs which take ‘zu’)

Below are some phrases that you may want to use when talking about future plans and intentions:

verbs with  and without zu

Notice that we use ‘zu’ in some sentences when we use two verbs.  There are some exceptions:  Modal verbs and tenses – these do not use ‘zu’.

If you use ‘zu’, you need to split the sentence into two parts divided by a comma:

e.g.  Ich hoffe, Arzt zu werden.           

The direct translation would then be ‘I hope  doctor to become’, but we would say ‘I hope to become a doctor’.
