Hi guys, this is Kee from BBC Learning English. Today I'm going to tell you how to use 'for' and 'since'.

  We use 'for' to describe how long an activity or a situation lasts. For example, I can say 'I go running every day for 10 minutes' – that's not true though.

  On the other hand, 'since' is used to describe when an activity or a situation began. For example, I can say 'I have been recording this video since 10 o'clock'.

  So, remember 'for' is used to describe how long an activity or a situation lasts, whereas 'since' is used to describe when an activity or a situation began.

  It's easy, isn't it?

  用法总结

  2. We use 'since' to describe when an activity or a situation began.
