Using Depuis...

"Depuis" peut être "since", oui? Et on peut utiliser le mot comme... "I have been working since October" --> "Je travaille depuis octobre" Mais comment dit-on "I have been working for a lot of years" ? Ou quelque chose comme ça ? ( "Je travaille depuis beaucoup d'années" ? Je ne sais pas. )


"Depuis" can be "since", yes? And one can use the word like... "I have been working since October" --> "Je travaille depuis octobre" But how do you say "I have been working for a lot of years"? Or something like that? ( "Je travaille depuis beaucoup d'années" ? I don't know. )

Peut-être Je travaille depuis de nombreuses années.

I'm with Ripcurlgirl, it's primarily equivalent to since but used to express the idea for which we would use the English 'for' in that context.
