    Re: Lay Down

    Both are correct. It depends on the context, I would say


    Not a teacher at all

    Re: Lay Down

    I'm not a teacher, by the way.

    However, I would suggest that you have forgotten your "a".

    "The previous election lay down monumental milestone to mark"
    should be
    "The previous election lay down a monumental milestone to mark"
    OR
    "The previous election lay down monumental milestones to mark"

    This is a common problem among chinese and japanese speakers.

    I know, my mother is one.
