Today we are going to continue learning about confusing words

. Here is an explanation of the differences between “farther” and “further.”

“Farther” is used when talking about physical distances.
- This is easy to remember because “farther” has the word “far” in it, which is used with distance.

Examples:
- The cat ran even farther away from the dog.
- The boy ran farther than I expected him to.
- You must stay farther than 6 feet away from people because of the Coronavirus.


“Further” is used to talk about figurative concepts such as time and progress. A lot of times, you can use “further” to mean “more.”

Examples:
- If you complain further, I’m going to stop talking to you. (Meaning if you continue to complain, I will stop talking to you.)

- The president hasn’t told us any further information on the Coronavirus. (Meaning the president hasn’t told us any more information.)

- The child asked the teacher some further questions. (Meaning the child asked the teacher more questions.)

    First of all thanks again for your declaration. One question,, in example; The boy ran farther than I expected him to. I didn't understand,, to, which come at the end of this sentence. 1. Could you believe, if you don't walk father you couldn't get any further information. 2. It's absolutely clear, if you want to learn further grammar you must follow Lillian. 3. Alot of student travel farther away due to to further their education. 4. I am very farther away to speak English fluently und quickly.

    @New language new life First of all thanks again for your declaration. One question,, in example; The boy ran farther than I expected him to. I didn't understand,, to, which come at the end of this sentence. - basically, that sentence means “the boy ran father than I expected him to run.” Sometimes when sentences end in “to”, it’s because you can repeat the verb at the end. Example: - the cat slept longer than I expected him to sleep. (You can also just say “the cat slept longer than I expected him to.” They mean the same thing.) 1. If you don't walk father, you won’t get any further information. 2. It's clear that if you want to learn further grammar, you must follow Lillian. 3. A lot of students travel farther away to further their education. 4. I am very far away from speaking English fluently and quickly.
