018. Not…until…

 

I. EXAMPLES:

Don’t tell him the bad news until he finishes his exam.

The secret was not discovered until he was dead.

I won’t stop shouting until you let me go.

II. DIALOGUES:

A: I heard that Bill got divorced.

B: Yes, he is really sad now.

A:I thought he wanted to get divorced because he didn’t love his wife anymore.

B: Yes, but he didn’t realize how much he needed her until they got divorced.

A: Yeah. Well now it’s too late. She already has another husband.

B: That’s  too bad.  Sometimes people often don’t  appreciate  what  they have until they lose it.
