The English sentence should be "Tini goes / is going to the bathroom / restroom / washroom." Native English speakers mostly avoid explicit use of the word "toilet" in everyday conversation, except to refer specifically to the receptacle that receives human urine and feces.

We find many, many ways to avoid using the (nearly taboo) word "toilet" except as above, and for toilet-training very young children.

My Indo family use the term, way-see (WC); which also appeared in the language books I first began to use. I only hear them using the word,toilet, when speaking English.
