Macedonia – Skopje
on Christmas day
i have a cup of coffee every morning
on time – punctual ; departure
you are just in time for dessert
previous = preceding = prior = the former
the latter = following = next
i do not want to be involved in that case
i want to sustain our conversation, don’t you know that?
i have not seen you for ages!
it’s been ages since i last saw you!
we’ve been friends for ages
i have had this dress for years (od lat)
jane and paul have been fighting for hours
i’ve been reading since breakfast
you should bake this cake for an hour
the man was sentenced for three months in prison
i’d love to get away for a few days at least
all those emotions went away
tom hasn’t called since we last spoke
from beginning to end
i guess we will be home and dry a month from now
everything will change from now on (od tego czasu)
from now on – od tego czasu, momentu
until – czynnosc, ktorej zakonczenie znamy, lecz czas rozpoczecia jest dla nas niewiadomy
FROM NINE TILL FIVE!!

jim is on leave until next Friday
he was angry with me after I called him that night

THEY set two cars on fire

i always go for a jog before breakfast
i was really bored during the performance
jim fell asleep, while he was watching tv
while i was preparing dinner, my husband was setting the table (laying the table)

Yesterday, i was at Pauline’s and the day before yesterday i went to the theatre with Jenny
i work night shift !!
my husband was cleaning the flat, during i was cooking dinner. It is impossible to use that word ‘during’ in that context..
the word ‘during’ and the word ‘while’ are not interchangeable. it is highly recommended to use the word ‘while’ when we are talking about two continuant actions that happened at the same time
continuant – nieprzerwany
from nine to five
from nine till five
we can use the word ’till’ when we know the beginning of the action, as well as the end
the thieves went through our belongings [possessions]
when we are talking about continuant activity
