John said :"I will get a new job as a bus driver in a years time"

Does it mean that John will get his new job within a year (1 year after he said that), or that he will drive buses for only 1 year ?

My attempt : "J'aurai un nouveau travail comme chauffeur de bus dans un an" - et non pas - "J'aurai un nouveau travail comme chauffeur de bus pour une durée de 1 an".

Thanks

    Hello,

    It is in a year's time, with an apostrophe.
    Does it mean that John will get his new job within a year:cross: (1 year after he said that:tick:), or that he will drive buses for only 1 year:cross: ?
