One minute, one mistake to correct: the choice is yours!

THE BIG MISTAKE:
'I live in Paris since 16 years.' (No no no no no no no no!!!)

'Oh. Ahh! I live in Paris since 17 years!' (grrrr...)

'OK OK OK. I live in Paris for 16 years.

THE BEST ENGLISH:

Another example:

'I work for Barclays since 3 years?' (No!)

'I work for Barclays for 3 years?' (mm-mm)

'I have worked for Barclays for 3 years!' (clapping)
