3.2: The Present Perfect with “For” and “Since”

Faster English July 2, 2024

When talking about past actions with present results, we often use the words “for” and “since” to indicate the duration or starting point of the action. “For” is used with a period of time, while “since” is used with a specific point in time. For example:

I have lived here for five years. (Period of time)

She has worked at the company since 2019. (Point in time)
