For vs. Since

Prepositions are often a very misused part of Speech. Over the years I have come to find that I am correcting prepositions such as For vs Since in almost every class.

One common problem that English learners face is how to use prepositions of time. Two of the most common prepositions of time are for and since.

English learners often have difficulties with these two prepositions, because their native languages may use prepositions differently.

Consider the following sentences:
I've been travelling for sixteen years. I've been travelling since 2006.

How can you relate to these learning and or teaching experiences in your life?
Do you have a particular preposition and or preposition that you often confuse?
