Slightly Snobby Grammar Note


Dear All non-Native speakers of English,

First of all thank you very much for learning English, I know it isn't always easy, but millions of English speakers everywhere appreciate you learning their language so they don't have to learn yours. Now just one small note for all of you: you can not use "too" in a negative construction, you should use "either" or "neither." For example: "I can't play the guitar" "I can't either" or "neither can I," but not "I can't play the guitar too." It's a little things I know, but if you could work on a bit I would really appreciate it.
