What do you mean? Would you want to know present continuous tense?

In fact my point is the sentence"lET'S GO FIND ZINI".In this sentence the verb "go" is directly followed by another verb"find" without plus a "to" ahead of the second verb like in"go to work" or plus "ing" like in "go swimming"...


Why shouldn't I say"go work"or "go swim" or "Let's go to find Zini"

So is this usage(Verb+Verb) common in English? I want to learn more about this grammatical phenomeon. I googled but couldn't get any hint about it….

see what I mean?
