How to properly use the English prepositions of time

How to use English prepositions of time

The prepositions in English and have always been,obviously, a long time will remain a headache for carriers of the Russian language: not only are they largely do not comply with the compatibility of our language, but often any logic in using them also to catch quite difficult.

However, to help themselves in the study of these small, but important elements of language can organize them into separate functional and thematic groups, one of which is a group of prepositions of time.

1. AT
It is used with a time designation for the day:
- At 5-
- At half past four-
- At 7.20-
- At midday-
- At midnight-

and even
- At the moment.

2. IN
It is used to refer to parts of the day, seasons, years, centuries:
- In the morning-
- In the afternoon-
- In the evening.
- In summer-
- In 1983-
- In the 21st century.

3. ON
Used with the days (days of the week and the date):
- On Monday-
- On Saturday-
- On the 1st of May-
- On the 2nd of October.

Tip 1: We should also remember the phrase at night (according to the rule must be the preposition in), for a while (for a while, a short while), for life (for life), at the weekend (the weekend), for the weekend (holiday).

Tip 2: next, this last and cancel prepositions, ie next morning, this Friday, last winter.

Happy learning!
