The words two, to and too

There are many words in the English language that are spelled differently, but sound the same. These words are called homophones.
The words two, to and too are homophones. When you speak them out loud, they sound the same. Listen to the audio files:
  • two
  • to
  • too
These words sound the same, but they do not have the same meaning:
  • two = the number 2: They have two children. / She leaves the house at two o'clock in the afternoon.
  • to = the preposition: Every year, they go to Spain in summer. / Can you take me to school, please?
  • too = the adverb, meaning also, likewise, in addition: I have a pet. Do you have one, too? / I'm going to get a drink. Do you want one, too?
These three words can be used in the same sentence: Will you go to the musical at two o'clock, too? We need two cars to get to the train station.
Note: the word too is mostly placed at the end of a sentence following a comma.
