You've been living in the U.S. for 6 months as an exchange student. Now it's time for you to go back home. Your host mother is dropping you off at the airport. You feel nostalgic because this is the same airport that she picked you up in 6 months ago. You say:
It seems like it was only yesterday that we first met here.
Use this phrase when you feel like time has passed by quickly.
It seems like it was only yesterday that I was changing your diapers and watching you take your first steps, and now here you are, going off to college.
The first time I saw Martha, it was love at first sight. It seems like it was only yesterday.
It seems like it was only yesterday that I started writing short English lessons and posting them here.
When you want to talk about the first time you met someone, use this phrase:
We first met back in 1992.
When we first met, I was a lifeguard and he was one of the swimming instructors.
I can't remember exactly when we first met.
