La différence entre "schedule" et "timetable"?

23rd Jun 2019

A timetable is a list of times at which certain stages are reached, or events, lessons,etc. take place.

"Schedule" can also be used for this, but has a wider variety of meanings, e.g. a work programme, a list of items or tasks to be performed within a set period, or in legal documents an appendix to the main text (now more commonly described as an "annex" following the European convention).

Again, you can make an "example" of someone, but not an "instance".
