¡Hola de nuevo!

Hace tiempo escribí un artículo sobre las palabras for, since y ago en inglés, y cómo usarlas.

Luego una estudiante en mis clases particulares quería practicar, y así hice unos ejercicios… hice 50 frases de ejemplo, concretamente.

Si quieres la explicación más larga, está aquí: cómo usar for, since y ago.

El tema es que se usan con presente perfecto o pasado simple, que es un tema que también explico en otro artículo. Aquí la versión breve…

Se usa for con un periodo de tiempo.

for 5 years = durante 5 años

Since con un momento en el pasado.

since 2015 = desde 2015

Y ago después de un periodo de tiempo, normalmente con pasado simple.

5 years ago = hace 5 años
