A preposition of time lets you talk about a certain time frame, such as a date on the calendar, a day of the week, or the precise moment something happens. Although they are employed differently, prepositions of location and time are the same terms. These prepositions are simple to discern because they always talk about times rather than locations.

What are Prepositions of Time? 

The preposition of time is used to indicate when a particular action has taken place. Such as, “I will reach at 7:30 pm.”, “The picnic is planned on their anniversary.”, “ I am getting married in September”. The three types of prepositions of times are sometimes confusing to understand. However, you should know that they can be used interchangeably and they are referred to different time frames. 

  • 🎯 We use “on” to talk about days and dates.
  • 🎯 We use “in” for longer periods, months, years, seasons, and parts of the day.
  • 🎯 We use “at” for specific points in time.
