FOR or SINCE

One of the common challenges in language learning is grasping the appropriate usage of certain prepositions. This Task Deck focuses on "for" and "since," two prepositions that often cause confusion.

  1. For: "For" is used to indicate a period of time or duration. When you want to talk about how long something has been happening or how long it will continue, "for" is the go-to preposition. For example: "I have been learning English for two years."

  2. Since: On the other hand, "since" is used to specify a starting point in time. It marks the beginning of an action or event and is often used with a specific point in the past. For instance: "She has been living in New York since 2010."

Remember these simple rules:

  • "For" talks about duration.

  • "Since" talks about the starting point.
