Which would b the difference between to miss ans to lost? I have studied English abroad for one month and once I was talking to a native about one bus I had lost, after saying that, he made a correction right away saying that I missed the bus and not lost the bus. Thank you.

"lose" it's when you don't have something anymore which you once had "miss" in this case would mean "skip", so logically you didn't "lose" the bus as you basically never had it, but "skipped" it due to wrong timing.

You 'miss' the bus when you turn up and the bus has already been and gone - you have arrived late and missed the bus. e.g. I was late for work as I missed the bus this morning. Hope this helps Jane:)
