Oh. I got 60 I am going to improve my English better thanks a lot for the valuable lesson madam

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

I still don’t understand the usage of “at Christmas” yet.

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

    We use the preposition “at” in this case, because Christmas is a festival. An example, if I talk about Halloween, I don’t use “on”, but “at” because Halloween is a festival too. We just use “on” when we talk about a day, for example, “On Valentine’s Day”. I hope I have help you, and excuse me for any mistake in my vocabulary :)

    Tuesday, June 7th 2016

    Hi, my friend!! “at Christmas” we use when we want to refer to the “holiday” Example: we always travel at Christmas (Christmas time, during the Christmas holiday)
    And we use “on Christmas” when we want to refer to the “day” we say: on Monday for example..”we usually get together on Christmas (On Christmas day).

    I hope it helped you at least a little bit… Bye! :D

    Tuesday, June 7th 2016

      Excellent explanation TiagoAmericoo! I bet you are an English teacher.

      Prepositions are always a headache for English language learners, aren´t they?

      That’s it for now! Have a great day!

      Tuesday, June 7th 2016

      Thanks so much for your simple & appropriate explanation! You helped me more then “a little bit”;).

      Tuesday, June 7th 2016

      Like is missing ;)

      Tuesday, June 14th 2016

    Christmas is festival DAY…so only we use ‘at’…

    Monday, August 8th 2016

      ‘ on Christmas ‘ as it’s a day ..

Hi, Gill. Thank you for the great lesson, which is really easy to figure out. I realised one thing about the difference between at and in. When we think

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

Thanks a lot Gill!!Great lesson ;)

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

I am sorry. I pressed the wrong botton.
When we think about the position of a certain thing, “at“ shows a more specific place than “in“.Moreover, “in the” shows something is in a spacious area. And then, we can find out the distinct defference between

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

Everybody, here. I am terribly sorry again.

Let me leave my comment. We can find out the distinct difference when to use at or in as for the time of the day. That is, at shows a shorter period of a day while in the shows a certain amount of time.

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

thank you

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

Hi Gill,
Your experession was very clear, it’s easy to undertsand with you. thank you.

Tuesday, June 7th 2016

Hello, Gill! How do you do? I loved your lesson! Although I finished my English course some years ago, it is always useful a review of prepositions, which are so confusing for foreigners like me. I also liked the explanation about the word “fortnight” (fourteen nights”). I knew the meaning but I had never thought that before. I have read some books of Jane Austen, and I like her. However, my favourite British writer is Charles Dickens, no doubt! By the way, I love your pronunciation and accent! It is very beautiful and intelligible. See you in the next lesson!

I still do not understand the difference between TO NIGHT and TONIGHT. any help?

Saturday, June 11th 2016

    Hi Rapok — TONIGHT is always one word — meaning ‘this night’ (we don’t say ‘this night’, we always say ‘tonight’). I can’t think of an example where the words ‘to’ and ‘night’ would appear next to each other as two separate words. You can say ‘the night’, eg ‘the night is dark’, but ‘tonight’ is for examples such as ‘see you tonight’, ‘there’s a party tonight’, etc. I hope this helps :-)
