    Straight off or straight away

    What is the main difference between "straight off" and " straight away". Can you give a few examples of them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    As you become accustomed to using this forum, you will realise that we always ask learners to provide complete sentences for us to consider. Please do so now for "straight away" and "straight off".

    Note my changes above, marked in red. Please don't try to create your own smilies. Click on the button and choose an appropriate one. Don't use a smiley in place of a closing punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Straight off or straight away

    Thanks, that's very helpful. I got the difference between "straight off" and "straight away" after your declaration.

    Anyway

    Re: Straight off or straight away

    Hello, Turkish.
    Could you give us your own example sentences?
    (emsr2d2 asked you to do so in her post.)
    We'd like to know whether you understand the difference correctly.
