    Wink for or during

    Hello,

    I need your help please.

    Here is the sentence : "I'm going to write in English and maybe you could correct me for the next lesson".

    Is the use of "for" correct in this case?

    Thanks a lot
    W

    It depends on the meaning.

    If you mean prior to the next lesson, "before" would be better than "for" or "in preparation for".

    In fact I would like my teacher to correct my email during the next lesson.

    Is it better to say : " I'm going to write in English and maybe you could correct me during the next lesson" ?

    Thank you

    'For' could mean 'before' or 'during'. You could also use 'at the next lesson'.

    not a teacher
