    Last and The last



    LAST is used before the days of the week  and before the words: week, month, term , semester, year...

    ex : Joe came to see us last Sunday. 

    1) (The) Last is placed before numbers: (Be careful of the word order !)

    ex: The last three exercises are difficult, but you can do them! 


    2) (The) latest  and not  the last is used when it means the most recent

    ex : Have you seen Disney's latest film ? 


    3) Last ou the last : * last month = the month before, the preceding month- and *  the last month = the month ending a list or an enumeration  have very different meanings.

    ex : Last month, I went to Turkey for a long hike. 

    ex : I'll spend the last month of the year in the sun. = (December) 



    4) A few expressions :

    - Last, but not least = Finally, but not less important ...

    - At last = Finally, eventually.

    - It's the last straw (that breaks the camel's back!) = That crowns it all ... Enough is enough ! I can't take more !

    Now, you're ready to do the test without making the smallest mistake ! Will you do it ? I hope so !
