〜から 〜まで

(from ~ to ~ / 从~到~ / ~부터~까지)

〜から is a particle which means ‘from’.

六時からべんきょうします。

〜まで is a particle used to mean ‘until’.

八時までべんきょうします。

You may also combine the two sentences:

六時から八時までべんきょうします。

These particles can be used with time and place and are used instead of the usual time/place marker に.

からがっこうまで行きます。

 

Practice:

In pairs, ask each other from and until what time they engage in the following activities.

For example:

A: ゆみさん何時から何時まであさごはんを食べますか。
