    During

    Hello,

    This time I want to ask you about the following question:

    “I have a lot of work during this week”, does this sentence sound natural?

    Thank you for your help.

    No, "during" is not necessary.

    If I wanted to maintain the word "during", would it be more natural then to use another verbal tense?
    For instance: "I've been having a lot of work during this week".
    or "I am having a lot of work during this week"

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Re: During

    However you word it, it is better without 'during'. You could say, "I'll have a couple of busy periods during the week".

    Re: During

    'During the visit, I have not achieved anything significant' is the use of present perfect correct?

    In this sentence I haven't specified if it is 'this visit', therefore could it be used with the present perfect?
