    Welcome to the forum, time traveller.

    There's no difference.

    (You use quotation marks in German, too, don't you?)

    Thanks for your answer Rover! And yes we do use quotation marks, but only for direct speech not if we are trying to explain something. For example:

    Alex said to Clara:" there are good prospects for promotion".

    I know, German is a bit of a crazy language ��

    You wrote I could use both " of/for" I' m a bit confused because my English teacher gave me a full fault in my exams for writing " good prospects FOR promotion"

    I actually prefer "for".
