    Smile a world apart

    what does 'a world apart' exactly mean and how can you use it on the sentence?

    e.g. I am a world apart.
    1. 'does it make sense?'
    2. 'what does it mean?'

    Many thanks for your help!

    Re: a world apart

    It is "We are worlds apart" or "They are worlds apart". It means that two people have widely differen attitudes or viewpoints.

    Re: a world apart

    There is an idiomatic phrase involving 'world', that you can use with 'I am'; but it doesn't mean the same. If you are very happy you are 'out of this world'.
