    Lightbulb I need to stop for a rest. I can't walk any longer.

    Hello all,
    Are both of them correct?

    'I need to stop for a rest. I can't walk any longer.'

    'I need to stop for a rest. I can't walk any further.'
    So interested in learning English.

    Re: I need to stop for a rest. I can't walk any longer.

    They're both correct. The first refers to time. The second refers to distance.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
