Example sentences using "Front"

Q: Please show me example sentences with In front of and/or before.

Before is used for time. e.g. I brush my teeth before I go to bed. She went to the bank before she came home.

Before can also be used for location, however this is an old way of speaking. "He knelt before the throne" is a common example of where this is used, and it is another way of saying "He knelt in front of the throne". Many modern English speakers don't use 'Before' to mean 'In front of' anymore.

Si 'Jane sat opposite me' ella está sentada en frente de mí... entonces su cuerpo y cara se enfrente a mí.

Si ella está sentada 'in front of me' está sentada delante de mí. solo veo la parte de atrás de su cabeza.

Espero que tenga sentido.

En inglés:

If Jane is sat opposite me then her body and face, faces me. I can see her face.

If she is sat in front of me then I see the back of her head.
