By Vs. Until--The Difference

 




By and Until- What’s the Difference? 

Again, here are two English Grammar points that many ESL students get confused with. As usual, we are going to use simple explanations and clear examples to show the difference between the two

By + time= not later than

I sent the package to my friend yesterday. He should receive it by tomorrow.

This means, my friend should receive the package either today or tomorrow; not later than tomorrow.

 

I have to be home by 5:55. My favorite TV program starts at 6:00.


Until- states how long a situation or an event continues.

I cleaned my room until midnight.

I always watch YouTube videos until 4:00 in the morning.

I don’t think I will ever forget him. I’m sure I’ll remember him until I die. (OMG)

My cousin is in my house now. She will stay with me until the pandemic is over.

 

Now, let’s compare the two.

David is in Italy now. He will be away until Monday.

David is in Italy now. He will be back by Monday.

In my next post, we will discuss the more advanced way of using these two expressions.
