Time Prepositions

Il vaut mieux apprendre quelques exemples par coeur, parce que c’est difficile d’établir des règles. Les prépositions employées pour l’heure, les temps, les dates sont:

on, in, at

faites ce petit exercice:

1. I always get up _______ 6 O’clock
2. My appointment is _________ Monday
3. Most people take their holidays _______ July or August
4. I like to do most of work _______ the morning
5. What do you do ______ the weekend?
6. Owls are nocturnal. They do their hunting _______ night
7. I stay up late ______ the weekend, but I go to bed early _____ the week

        Jamal,

        You’re right, it’s more difficult when there are no rules. A lexical approach to learning is the only way to progress: you just have to know that we say ‘on Monday’ ‘in July’ ‘in the afternoon’ etc.
