Video Transcript

Hello.  Welcome to Top Up Learning and welcome to your one minute lesson.  Today, we are talking about “for and since”.

We often use for and since when we are talking about time so for example with “for” we use “for plus the period of time”, so from the beginning of the period to the end of the period e.g. for 3 months, for 3 days, for 6 minutes.

We use “since” for a specific point in time so from a point in the past until now e.g. since 1 January, since 1981, since Friday.  I have worked here for 5 years.  I have worked here since 2015.  I hope that’s made it a little bit clearer for you.

Thank you for joining me today and thank you for joining TopUp Learning.  If you want to see what classes we can offer you, go to and I hope to see you there. Thank you.
