    Dark Ages

    Hi.. I'd like to ask you about the phrase ''Dark Ages''. I know that it means the ''middle ages'' but I'd like to know what do we mean when we describe something as the ''Dark Ages''. For example, I have seen this sentence: I think public school is the Dark Ages.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    elenaarrythenight, clicking on the 'Thank' button can obviate the need for a new post saying 'thanks', such is one of the many unwritten rules on this forum.

    MatthewWai is quite right to advise you not to write a new post just to say "Thank you". However, since you did feel the need to write that post, you should have capitalised and punctuated it correctly. See my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
