‘Ago’

Her er svarene på den sidste quiz (‘Ny Quiz’):

Forkert:    ‘I saw her for 2 days ago.’

Korrekt:    ‘I saw her 2 days ago.’

Forkert:  ‘For 15 weeks ago, there were no trains to Boston.’

Korrekt:  ‘Fifteen years ago, there were no trains to Boston.’

På engelsk skal man IKKE bruge ‘for’ sammen med ‘ago’. Man kan bruge enten ‘for’ eller ‘ago’ – men aldrig sammen.

f.eks.

‘They arrived 5 days ago.  They will be here for 2 weeks.’

‘A hundred years ago, there were no online English lessons.’

But now you can sit at home and learn English in your own comfy chair!

How cool is that?  😉
