    Re: by or until

    Paul will be away on business until Thursday. He'll be back on Thursday. (the business trip continues up to this particular time, Thursday - a period of time - 'until' says how long a situation continues)

    Paul will be back by Thursday (He'll be back either before Thursday or on that day at the latest - a point of time - his return will happen by a time in the future)

    (not a teacher)

    Iyi aksamlar.
