Questions about IELTSWhat is difference between before and ago ?
Huy Quoc Staff asked 3 months ago

We use “past time + ago”

For example: 10 years ago, a long time ago, a few weeks ago, couple of days ago

We use “before + action/ event”

For example: before you left, before we start, before lunch

Don’t use “before + past time” (before two weeks or before three days is not grammatically correct)
