Hi,
Let's say I work as a teacher and I always have a class at 3, but tomorrow I want my students to come one hour earlier( at 2) OR later (at 4). How can I ask them to do so? But I don't want to use numbers, I DON"T WANT TO SAY, Come tomorrow at 2 or 4. I want to say something like: Tomorrow's class is moved one hour earlier or later??? I'm not sure if it's correct.
2- How can I tell them that this change is permanent ?

eg The class will start one hour earlier tomorrow.
eg The class will start one hour earlier tomorrow. This will be a permanent change.

Thanks alot, Clive. But what's the opposite? I mean, is correct to say: the class will start one hour (later?).
Thanks again.

Thank you, CalifJim. I guess the opposite in this sentence would be (later) as well, right? "Starting tomorrow, class will be an hour later".

Exactly. You can substitute other words in many places in that sentence.

Starting [tomorrow / next Tuesday / on Friday / next month],
class will [be / begin / be held / meet]
[an hour / two hours / half an hour / 20 minutes / ...]
[earlier / later].

You can generate a great many grammatical sentences from this pattern. Emotion: smile

That is very helpful. Thanks again, CJ.
