    In years and for years

    hello there,
    I would like to know whether the assumptions below are correct
    or not.

    When I say "We've been rehearsing for two weeks, I think we all
    know our lines quite well by now", it means that we started rehearsing
    two weeks ago and we are rehearsing still.

    And when I say "We haven't rehearsed in two weeks, I don't think
    anyone remembers the right lines anymore", it means that the last
    time we rehearsed was two weeks ago.

    And finally, if I replace 'in' with 'for' ("We haven't rehearsed for two weeks"), it also means we haven't done any rehearsing since the last
    time, two weeks ago.

    I look forward to hearing your comments
