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

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
