Hi, every one
I want to ask you whether the way I use "before" sounds natural. I hated Maths when I studied at school some years ago. Can I say "I hate before"?
Thank in advance !

    No, please try to refrain from it. :) Stick with something like 'I used to hate mathematics.' Your own sentence expresses the idea quite well too:
    I hated Maths when I studied at school some years ago.

    If you must use before, it would be in a sentence like, "Before, I hated Maths but now I enjoy it." Here, "before" would mean "In the past."

    Or "Before I hated maths, I hated English."
