For ages / It’s been ages
Let’s look at the idioms, for ages and it’s been ages. An age is a long period of time, like the Ice Age or the Stone Age. Well, in a similar way, when you haven’t done something or seen someone for a long time you can use for ages or it’s been ages.

  • It’s been ages since I’ve had sushi for dinner. I’m looking forward to tonight!
  • Kim! How have you been. It’s been ages! We haven’t seen each other since college.

How about you? What has been ages for you?

Everything Your GRAMMAR BOOK Didn’t Teach You

Yes, your grammar book probably taught you the difference between during and while, but it probably didn’t teach you how we actually use those words in everyday English. This book does!

You’ll also learn how to really use phrases such as:

  • By Friday and Until Friday
  • In the end and At the end
  • I’m bored and I’m boring
  • Even if and Even though
  • Just and Only
  • Much and Many
  • Stop doing it and Stop to do it…and so much more!

You’ll also learn how to use causatives, conditionals, frequency adverbs, modal verbs, articles, and prepositions.
