    this after school

    Can I say "this after school" to mean "after school today"?
    If not, how would you say it?

    Below is the example.
    "When shall we go to the movies?"
    "This after school."

    Thank you in advance,

    shikemoku

    Re: this after school

    You need something after "this" if you use it at all.

    Let's go this afternoon, after school.
    Let's go this evening, after we've done our homework.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
