Before/After | English Grammar Exercise

Today’s online mini-grammar lesson by Scrambled Eggs English School, Milan is on Before and After.

Before and after are used to indicate the order of events in the past or future.

Before means ‘earlier than’ and is used to explain what will happen before something else occurs in the future, whereas after means ‘later than’ and is used to explain what you will do after something else occurs.

When before/after is followed directly by a verb, the verb always takes the gerund form.
