what to say when we want to tell "he is not in town'
We say he is "out of town."
Hello Devil, and welcome to WordReference.
"He is not in town," is fine.
Thank you very much for the reply.
As English is not our mother tongue, true translations of our native tongue do slip in from my students. I am a Post graduate in English & a Corporate Trainer in it.
From now on, I guess, I can depend upon you for 'usage' corrections!
I would say the same "He is not in town" or you may say he is away or he is abroad or out of the city
Either "he is not in town" or "he is out of town" would work. "He is out of station", however, would not mean anything to a native English speaker.
Separate names with a comma.
