If I asked you what you find most not easy in English, I'm sure most of you would answer generally: Prepositions.
Well, this entry will try to help you with three prepositions of time, which you are familiar with but sometimes you find them a bit confusing. These prepositions are ON, IN and AT.
Check the mind maps below and then try to complete the sentences.
Don't forget that the days of the week are written in capital letters. The months of the year are also written in capital letters. Remember that we say "at night" although it's a part of the day.
Complete the sentences with one of these prepositions to check if you understood.
1. I'm writing some examples _____ the moment.
2. As soon as I finish this entry, I'm going out to do the shopping. I'll be back _____ half an hour.
