Hello there!

Can you give me a hand with this sentence? I really can't say which option(s) is (are) the right one(s)!

My new colleages have helped me a lot during the last few weeks

My new colleages have helped me a lot in the last few weeks
My new colleages have helped me a lot for the last few weeks

Thank you very much in advance!

    I don't think that's it, Karmele3. "For" just doesn't work well in that sentence. I'm sticking with my opinion: "during" was the best word in the list of possibilities that you offered.

    Can't we use "for" here because of the word "the last"? For example, is it possible to say "My new colleagues have helped me a lot for a few weeks"? Thanks in advance.
