Hello there! We’re here again to discuss one grammar point that students of ESL, or English as a Second Language, find confusing.
To ask simply means get some information. When you ask someone, “What are you eating?” , you simply want to know what the person is having for a meal now.
To ask for means you want something, either tangible or intangible, to be given.
There was no spoon, so I asked for one.
We have no sugar. Please ask the waiter for some packets of sugar.
