To Put Off Doing Something

In the example I gave, I said the following:

“I hear reasons why English learners want khổng lồ put off starting this journey.”

(The đoạn clip was taken from this video.)

This means lớn postpone doing something; to bởi vì something at a later date. Here are three more examples:

“I keep putting off going to lớn the dentist.”“My friends monster has put off the meeting until tomorrow.”Talking about homework:“I always put it off until the last minute.”

Note: this is different to gọi off. To gọi off something means to cancel something.

Therefore, there’s a difference between the following:

They’ve called off the wedding (canceled)They’ve put off the wedding until next year (it’s going khổng lồ happen next year instead)
