    FOR a minute

    Dear teachers,
    Could you tell me which form is correct?

    I see him for two hours a week.
    OR
    I see him two hours a week.

    The sentence is supposed to mean that we meet once a week and it takes two hours.
    Thank you in advance.

    Both are used. I prefer the first one.
