Dès, depuis, à partir: French starting times

Salut !

You want to describe something, an action with a starting point in time.
But the French language has several different words for this set up!
“Dès”, “depuis”, “à partir”… Like items in a toolbox, each one has a different use.

Let’s untangle these words.

Et toi ?
Did you know the difference between Dès and Depuis?
>> Can you write 2 French sentences, one with each of these words in the comment area below?

That’s a challenge! :)

J’ai hâte de te lire.

Bonne journée,
