Students often make mistakes when using 'lead to' in their writing. What's the problem with these sentences?
- Consumerism can lead to increase the economy.
- Tourism can lead to destroy natural habitats.
- A competitive atmosphere in lessons leads to motivate students.
The problem is that we need a noun or noun phrase after 'lead to', not a verb.
So, here are some some ways that you could rewrite the sentences:
- Consumerism can lead to a more successful economy.
- Tourism can lead to the destruction of natural habitats.
- A competitive atmosphere in lessons motivates students.
Notice that in sentence 3 it is better to keep the verb 'motivates' and miss out 'leads to'.
