    vocabulary

    HELLO


    Could you please tell me how I can teach the 'Spare' in the context of couple of minutes.
    As I am doing 'CELTA' course I am finding it hard how to teach this word.

    As far as I am concerned the way I was able to understand your question you can use "spare" with a word moment/minute.
    For Instance:
    I have to talk to you could u have spare moment/minute for me.

    Here are two sentences with the term in question concerning the mentioned above context.

    Can you spare a few minutes for me?
    Can you spare me a few minutes today?

    Dear saadtariq, please don't use 'u' for 'you' on an English language forum.
