Translating "for"

Posted by akalovid September 13, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

How to say: "For me the weekend doesn't come"?

I find myself in a lot of situations where I want to use "for". Many of them can be reframed. Like: "For Australians it's Spring" which may become "In Australia it's Spring." But some can't (I think). I don't suppose I may use 给?

It's curious, prepositions appear to be one of my great challenges. Haven't really encountered that in other languages.
