I want to do a game with chlidren in which one of them takes a card (a secret one) with a month and the others have to guess which month he/she has chosen. The children say one month and the child with the card gives them a clue. I want him/her to say a short answer: "It's before" (before the month the children said) or "It's after" or "It's later" (the month they said). Can you tell me if the right answer is "after" or "later"? Thank you.
You can use either "Before/After" or "Earlier/Later" but I wouldn't combine "Before" with "Later".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
