    The only major difference is that "up to" can be used for other amounts: up to 5kg, up to a decent level, up to the top floor. Until/til are used only for time.

     

    Hello Mr. Hahn. How are you?

    .

    No difference basically but spelling.

    "Until now, I never had a student who was serious about practicing English."

    "Till now, I never had a student who was serious about practicing English."

    "Up to now, I never had a student who was serious about practicing English."

    You can use the terms interchangeably. However "Till" is basically a reduction of "until" and "until" is a complete word. So in written text, I would write "until".---Warm Regards, Bruce
