    For and Since for Time

    We often use for and since when talking about time.

    for + period

    A period is a duration of time, for example: 5 minutes, 2 weeks, 6 years. For means "from the beginning of the period until the end of the period." For can be used with all tenses.

    since + point

    A point is a precise moment in time, for example: 9 o'clock, 1st January, Monday. Since means "from a point in the past until now." Since is normally used with perfect tenses.



    For can be used with all tenses. Here are a few examples:

    * They study for two hours every day.
    * They are studying for three hours today.
    * He has lived in Bangkok for a long time.
    * He has been living in Paris for three months.
    * I worked at that bank for five years.
    * Will the universe continue for ever?

    For is NOT used with "all day", "all the time" etc.

    * I was there all day. (not *for all day)

    Since is normally used with perfect tenses:

    * He has been here since 9am.
    * He has been working since he arrived.
    * I had lived in New York since my childhood.

    Since can also be used in the structure "It is [period] since...":

    * It is a year since I saw her.
    * How long is it since you got married?

    NOTE:
