English learning thread
We usually "spend our time" for our own satisfaction.
By Open school
I spent my time studying English.
I spend all of my free time with my family.
We can "take our time" to do something for others.
Time is valuable and it is normal to say to someone " thank you for your time today" after a job interview for example.
That is why I think "taking your time" is better than "spending your time".
I use continuous "taking" because the action is still continuing. I am still here posting and answering questions. I am still taking my valuable time to assist you to the best of my ability.
