Can we use for dates?

Hi, can we use antes and despues for dates? For example "before Friday" or "after Monday".

Hola Hayley

Yes, you can. For example:

Necesito terminar mi redacción antes del lunes.

I need to finish my essay before Monday.

Después del viernes próximo estaré libre porque habré terminado mis exámenes.

After next Friday I'll be free because I will have finished my exams.

Just remember that you need "de" and "el" and it's contracted: "del". It's easy to forget because you don't need any preposition or article in English.

I hope it helps.

Saludos

Inma
