Level 2!!! let's practice what we learned last class. According to About.com:

IN: Use 'in' months and years and periods of time:

also, use 'in' a period of time in the future:

  • in a few weeks
  • in a couple of days

  • at six o'clock
  • at 10.30
  • at two p.m.

ON: Use 'on' with days of the week:

  • on Monday
  • on Fridays

also, use 'on' with specific calendar days:

  • on Christmas day
  • on October 22nd


in the morning / afternoon / evening - at night

We say in the morning, afternoon or evening BUT we say 'at night'
