Prepositions of Time | Esercizio Inglese

Prepositions are always a bit of a struggle when learning a language, especially since they tend to differ from one language to another.

How are your prepositions in English? Today’s blog takes on the infamous prepositions of time, which can be split into 3 simple all-encompassing prepositions: in, on and at. Is this topic completely new to you? Have no fear! Scrambled Eggs English School in Milan has a team of Native English Speakers to accommodate your every need.

So, which preposition is used for which time?

We use in for non-specific times such as months, years, decades and long periods of time. For example “in January,” “in 2009” and “in the future.”

We use on for specific days and dates, such as days of the week, days of the year and dates. For example “on Monday,” “on January 21st” and “on New Year’s Eve.”

Finally, we use at for the time, holidays and festivals as well as specific timeframes. For example “at 7:00 p.m.,” “at Christmas” and “at sunrise.”
