Hello. Please help me with the language problem.
Do you think it's possible to use "before" in the following context:
"The kids will not calm down before I buy this toy"?
Thank you very much for help.

  • English -

    The word "until" is better in this context.

  • English -

    It's not clear what you mean here.

    Do you mean that the children will stop being unruly only after you buy the toy?

    Do you mean that buying the toy has nothing to do with their calming down?

    Context usually includes several sentences, often the full paragraph. Please give us more context, and we can help you better with your vocabulary choices.
