"long-term": (1)that will last over a long period of time
e.g. a long-term strategy
(2) that is not likely to change or be solved quickly
e.g. long-term unemployment

"short-term": designed only for a short period of time in the future;lasting a short time
e.g. short-term aims/plans

thanks henry :D

I think I didn't make my question clear.

Actually I am looking for a word that's longer than short-term and shorter than long-term :lol:

Ooops.

Yes, your friend is right. There is a "midterm."

"midterm"(1) in the middle of the period that a government, a council, etc. is elected for.
e.g.midterm elections

(2) for or connected with a period of time that is neither long nor short; in the middle of a particular period.
e.g. a midterm solution

(3) in the middle of one of the main periods of the academic year.
e.g. a midterm exam
