For or Since: guia + exercícios

Você sabe a diferença entre for e since? Não? Então keep on reading que eu vou te contar!

For e Since são duas expressões típicas dos tempos verbais perfeitos – aqueles que são passados mas mantém algum link com o presente ou futuro, como o present perfect e o future perfect.

As duas palavras são usadas para darmos um indicativo de tempo, e enquanto since é usado para darmos uma data específica, um dia da semana, um mês… respostas pontuais no tempo, for é usado para darmos um período de tempo medido em semanas, anos, meses…
