    help for 19th june

    Hi teachers,
    Kindly help me with the following expressions.

    1. Suppose that I usually sleeps at 11pm but today I slept at 9pm so I say " Yesterday I slept earlier" or " Yesterday I slept much early before the time I usually sleep".
    Which one is correct?

    2. Can you please explain the use of " Not only & but".
    " Not only he became confident but brave enough to face the audience".

    3. "My so-called friends". How can we use so-called & what does it mean.
    Thank You
    Jhon

    There is nothing correct here.
    You cannot sleep early, nor you can sleep at some time. You can wake up or get up.
    And use the S suffix only for third person singular.

    You can say: I usually wake up(get up) at 11am, but today I woke up(got up) at 9 am. So, yesterday I woke up(got up) earlier.

    2. Can you please explain the use of " Not only & but".
    " Not only he became confident but brave enough to face the audience".
    He became confident AND brave enough to face the audience.


    3. "My so-called friends". How can we use so-called & what does it mean.
    So-called friends are people who pretend to be one's friends, but usually make something that one's back;
    Other 'so-called'' meanings:
    Incorrectly or falsely termed, commonly called, doubtful or suspect.

    Thank You

    Is it clear?
