Different FROM or THAN
The most common preposition to use with the adjective different is from:
- You are not that different from your father.
- London is very different from Beijing.
- Is going to university very different from going to high school?
Than is also in use, especially in the US, but some people consider it incorrect, so it may be best to avoid it:
- This pie tastes different than the last one you baked.
- The new manager is different than what I’d expected.
