Prepositions of time

Prepositions can also be used to show when something happened.

The prepositions at, on, and in

At, on, and in

We use at for specific times.

For example:

 I start work at 7.00 a.m.

 I don't work at night.


 We use on for specific days and dates.    

For example:

 My birthday is on Monday.   

 We're having a party on 7th September.   


We also use on for some special days.   

For example:

On Christmas day.


We use in for nonspecific times during a day, a month, a season, or a year.   

For example:

In summer it's too hot to work.  

 I started this web site in 1999.

 She woke up in the night.
