til = until a lot of americans say "till" but i say "til" with 1 "l" because it's short for "until"
Wait until or 'til Monday works but up to Monday doesn't. До понедельника does sometimes mean before Monday, just not in this sentence....more like Сделай это до понедельника - Do it before Monday
please, tell me, why "wait until Monday" but "wait before six pm"? Are until and before the same word? then why "wait before Monday" is wrong?
I'm native US. I would say "Wait until 6pm." "Wait until Monday" is also correct. But "Wait before 6pm" sounds strange.
I'm trying to think when "wait before" sounds right. I think it's only before a verb. Examples are: "wait before you go" or "wait before going. "
Thinking a little more about this--
"Wait before you go" is a command. I wouldn't say "Wait until you go" as a command. I'd say that only when referring to some expectation. An example is "Wait until you go! It'll be fun. "
