Membedakan Fungsi For dan During dalam Kalimat Bahasa Inggris

Dalam sebuah kalimat, bentuk for dan during memberikan keterangan waktu. Ketiga bentuk tersebut kadangkala membingungkan kita dalam pemakaian bahasa Inggris baik lisan maupun tulisan. Dalam aturan grammar bahasa Inggris, baik for maupun during memiliki penerapan dan aturan berbeda. 

For
For digunakan untuk menatakan seberapa lama sesuatu itu terjadi. For diikuti oleh periode waktu. Berikut contoh penggunaan for dalam kalimat.
  • I've lived in this city for five years.
  • She studied English for two hours last night.
  • Are you going away for the week-end?
  • She's been working here for six months.

For + Period of time

During
During digunakan untuk menyatakan ketika sesuatu terjadi. During diikuti oleh kata benda (noun). Adapun contoh kalimatnya adalah sebagai berikut,
  • I fell asleep during the speech.
  • We felt happy during holiday.
  • I'll call you some time during the night.
  • We met a lot of people during our trip.
During + noun
