This should help you avoid the common error of these confusing words.  To practice, click to download a free practice exercise

In theory the rules are simple:

FOR + ‘a period of time’        E.g.  for a(one) week, a year, five minutes, 3 days. DURING + a noun                   E.g. during the week, the year, the meeting, the weekend, the war!
