This is English tips with Addie, my name is Addie and I’m here to explain English grammar and pronunciation tips get on well on your way to become fluent in English; this video is about grammar and we are going to explain in, on and at in regard to time and date, I hope it helps.

In, on or at, this go with a time or a date.

I’m going to explain when to use: “in” with regard to a month or a year. “on” with regard to date or day of the week and “at” plus a clock time, midnight or midday or noon.

The first example is on in: “I was born in July”; “I was born in 1990”. Because this large period of time with which we are referring to in for example the 30 days of the month, or the 12 months of the year we can say “in”, so it’s within this time period “I was born in July”, “I was born in 1990”.


“I am going to London on Friday” Friday is a day of the week.

“Are you coming to the party on the 11 of April” this is a date, a specific date.

And the next example is at; “The party starts at 4 pm”

Next example: “It will be finishing at midnight.”

This is a very specific so we use at.

Remember also we can use in for a season “In Summer”, “In Autumn” for example this is because this is a large period of time, so it’s in that time period.

Also we can use “in” for the morning, afternoon, evening and night. “In the morning”, “In the night”

That’s because it’s very unspecific and it’s it covers a long period of time, and this always remain the same: “In the morning, In the afternoon, In the evening, In the night”.

At night can also be use. At night

Let’s just check our knowledge, so the first one is: “Let’s meet … Friday” If you need more time then you just pause it and then but now I’m going to carry on. “Let’s meet ON Friday” because it’s a day, On this day on Friday.

Next one: “The party is …. Sunday … midday.” If you need to pause It for a bit longer then feel free. “The party is ON Sunday AT midday”

“Kasia went to Poland … December” December is a month of the year so it’s it a quite large period of time therefore we use IN.

“I love skiing …. Winter” Winter again is a long period of time so we use IN winter, In winter.

“The show starts…10.00 o’clock … the morning. It’s the matinee.” The show starts AT 10.00o’clock IN the morning. It’s the matinee. So AT 10.00 o’clock because it’s specific; IN the morning because we always use IN for morning, night, noon, night.
