A WHILE or AWHILE?

922 ratings | 88951 views
http://www.engvid.com/ "A while" or "awhile"? These words sound almost exactly the same, but one is a noun, and one is an adverb. In this lesson for advanced students, I'll teach you when to use each. Even native speakers get this wrong, so it might take a while, but if you watch the lesson and do the quiz, you will get it. http://www.engvid.com/a-while-or-awhile/

just because you didn't understand doesn't mean he didn't explain it well. His explanation was spot on.

"one" means "morning, evening, day...", the whole sentence is like "goodbye". You only say it in an informal situation.
