| | Re: illustrating the difference between since and for (present perfect) through games
You can draw an arrow showing students the duration of the present perfect tense and form 2 sample sentences using for and since e.g. I have taught English since 2000 . ( Starting point of the action ) I have taught English for eleven years . ( Show them the period covered on the time line ) .You can give them more examples and ask them to show you on the line of time drawn on the board if it refers to a precise point of time or a period of time . you can do many activities until they grasp the difference between since & for correctly .
I wish this could help.
