How are prepositions - 'for', 'while', 'during' used? - English Grammar lesson Take the quiz - We use 'for' followed by a period of time to say how long something goes on :- Example - We watched TV for 2 hours last night Example - I am going to Spain for 2 weeks. We use 'during' followed by noun to say when something happens (not how long) Example - Nobody was vocal during the presentation. Example - I fell asleep during the film and I slept for an hour. We use 'while' followed by a subject and verb. Example - We saw sam while waiting for the bus. Example - I fell asleep while watching TV. Also when talking about future we sometimes use the present (not will) but the word 'while'. Example - I will be in London next week, I hope to see John while I'm there.
