Than vs. Then

Added by Tomasz H. 3 April 2014 in category: English, Grammar

These two words sounds a lot alike, but they are completely different. today we will show you hot to use them, when. Everything this way you will never have problems with using than or then.



Than is a conjunction used in comparisons

John is smarter than Franck.

This is more important than you might think.

Yes, she is taller than I.


At that point in time

Will you be working at noon? I'll call you then.

Next, afterward

I went to the bank, and then to the market.

In addition, also, on top of that

It cost 5$, and then there's tax too.

In that case, therefore (often with "if")

If you want to go, then you'll have to finish your work.


What else can I say you? If you still have problems with using than and then - here is some great tip:



used only in comparisons, so if you're comparing something use than!



If you're not comparing - then.


What could be easier than that?;)
