IELTS Grammar: before or ago?

 Don't say: I came to Manchester before two weeks.

Do say: I came to Manchester two weeks ago.

Use "past time + ago"

  • 10 years ago, a long time ago, a few weeks ago, a couple of days ago

Use "before + action / event"

  • before you left, before we start, before lunch

Don't use "before + past time" (before two weeks, before three days)
