※ Which Word? - last / take

 

 Last and take are both used to talk about the length of time that something continues.
e.g.)

Last is used to talk about the length of time that an event continues:
How long do you think this storm will last?
The movie lasted over two hours.

 

• Last does not always need an expression of time:
e.g.)

His annoyance won’t last.

 

• Last is also used to say that you have enough of something:
e.g.)

The money she gave us should last until next week.

 

 

 

• Take is used to talk about the amount of time you need in order to go somewhere or do something. It must be used with an expression of time:
e.g.)

It takes (me) at least an hour to get home from work.
How long will the flight take?
The water took ages to boil.
