    Can you say:

    This week is the last week I'm going to be here for a long time.

    I'm trying to say: After this week I'm going to be gone for a year or so.

    This is my last week [here] for about a year.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
