    moments

    Dear teachers,

    I came across an expression 'From the first moments'. Could you please kindly explain why 'moments' instead of 'moment' is used here?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    To me it means, from the first (few) moments (i.e., the first 2 or 3 minutes).

    All the best, :D
