Till is slang. They mean the same thing. Until is more proper. Simple as that.
Hi,

You should not use "till" in formal writing. It is mainly used in spoken English. Remember that you must spell the word "until" with a single L Emotion: smile

Hello Pdk

It's possible that some native speakers feel that "till" is less formal. But as far as I can see, from the entries in Merriam Webster and the Oxford English Dictionary, you can use "till" instead of "until" wherever you like (e.g. where the rhythm of the sentence requires it).

"Till" also appears in some set phrases, e.g. "till we meet again!".

And untill isn't a word. It's until.
Quite right, Anon. Thank you.
