Around the age of 48-60 months, typically developing children start to understand the basic meaning of “until”. “Until” (as a conjunction) means up to (the point in time or the event mentioned). For many people – including people learning English as a second language and/or people with developmental language disorders – understanding and using “until” correctly is very difficult. “Until” is an important word to know for sequencing events on time, and for linking ideas generally.
In this 20-page language workout, we provide lots of examples of “until” in familiar routines. We have elected to use “until” as a conjunction (rather than as a preposition) to stimulate complex sentence development. We have used pictures as well as the words to support people with different strengths and skill levels.
