I am confused when lớn use "For the time being" and when lớn use "In the meantime". Are they interchangeable? Can you please explain with some examples?



In the meantime means until something expected happens, or while something else is happening:

Your computer won"t arrive sầu till Thursday. In the meantime, you can use Jude"s.

From the http://dictionary.cambridge.org website.

for the time beingif you describe how a situation will be for the time being, you mean it will be like that for a period of time, but may change in the future-- Free Dictionary

I believe that they are essentially interchangeable.

Yes and No. Ok it may seem khổng lồ very much unclear to lớn understvà in the starting but let me explain it to you.

In the mean time means while something is happening. & Time being means while you are không tính tiền, so that you can utilise your time...So yes you can use it interchangeable but only when you are không tính tiền. Similarly No when you are not không lấy phí.
