3. Model sentence:

I don’t mind working late. (Pre- intermediate)

Analysis of meaning:

We use “don’t mind” to express that “ there is nothing against it or it’s fine”. In this case the speaker is saying that he/she often works late and that it is not a problem for him/her.


I work at a bank. My work hours are 9 to 5, Sunday to Thursday. However, most of days, I have to stay longer and work till 7pm in the evening and I don’t have any problem with that.

Checking meaning:

Do I work after 5 o’clock ? ( Yes)

Do I have a problem with that? ( No )
