For, During, While

These three expressions that indicate time and event often confuses many students of English as a Second Language (ESL).

Let’s discuss the differences briefly.

FOR

We use FOR + a period of time to say how long an activity or an event has been going on.

Examples:

For two nights

For two hours

For two days

For a week

I watched YouTube for two hours last night. I always watch YouTube for two hours every day.

I have been waiting for Jake for two hours. He is always late for appointments.

DURING

We use DURING + NOUN to say when something happens. Usually, something (Verb) happens DURING an event, or when a situation is currently going on. (The event is of course a noun, the situation is of course a noun.)

Examples:

I fell asleep during the class.

I got so bored during the professor’s lecture.

For periods of time, we can also use During.

Examples:

During summer, a lot of young people want to work part time in convenience stores.

Not many people want to go out during winter. Generally, prefer want to stay warm indoors.

WHILE

We use WHILE when we talk about actions that happen at the same time.

Look at these examples:

I fell asleep while watching YouTube videos.

OR

I fell asleep while I was watching YouTube videos.

Compare:

I met a lot of new friends during my vacation in Baguio City.

I met a lot of new friends while I was on vacation in Baguio City.

JAPANESE TRANSLATION (By: Google Translate)

 For, During, While

 時間と出事を示すこれらの3つの表現は、多くの場合、第二言語としての英語(ESL)の多くの生を混させます。

違いについて簡明しましょう。

 にとって

FOR +期間を使用して、アクティビティまたはイベントがどのくらいの期間行われているかを示します。

Examples:

For two hours

For two days

For a week

I watched YouTube for two hours last night. I always watch YouTube for two hours every day.

I have been waiting for Jake for two hours. He is always late for appointments.

その間

DURING + NOUNを使用して、何かが起こったときに言います。通常、イベント中、または況が現在進行しているときに、何か(動詞)が生します。 (イベントはもちろん名詞であり、況はもちろん名詞です。)

 例:

I fell asleep during the class.

I got so bored during the professor’s lecture.

 一定期間、Duringを使用することもできます。

例:

 During summer, a lot of young people want to work part time in convenience stores.

Not many people want to go out during winter. Generally, prefer want to stay warm indoors.

 WHILE

同時に生するアクションについて話すときは、WHILEを使用します。

 これらの例を見てください。
