Understanding the difference between POR and PARA

When learning Spanish, one of the common struggles for students is understanding the difference between the prepositions POR and PARA. Both words can be translated to "for" in English, but they are used in different contexts and have distinct meanings.

POR is often used to indicate movement through a place, duration of time, the reason for an action, an exchange, or means of transportation. It can also express gratitude or apologize. On the other hand, PARA is commonly used to indicate purpose, destination, deadlines, and recipients.
