Could you please paraphrase the meaning of the following:
'Nobody was moderating my training apart from myself. I just ticked away and did my own thing'.
what does 'tick away' here means?, and 'moderate my training'?
Thanks in advance
Hello Linda, welcome to Using English!
"Nobody was moderating my training" probably means: "no one was monitoring my training and making sure that I didn't make mistakes".
"To tick away" is "to proceed in a quiet and methodical manner", like a clock ticking, or a wristwatch.
All the best,
