  1. One more usage of ‘in’ with time is when you want to indicate passing of certain time period.
    For example, ‘See you in a month’ does not really mean I wish to see you within this month (like it would be with ‘See you in July’). It means I might see you after approximately 30 days or later.

  2. Hi Hadar~~ I wonder what should I use for ‘weekends’ and ‘weekend’ and ‘weekdays’

  3. Thank you Hadar. I have been sick for awhile and no time to watch your videos
    But you are absolute great

  4. Hadar is an excellent teacher in all aspects. Professionally speaking, her knowledge is admirable. As for her efforts – she is the most dedicated teacher; very keen on making the learning and assimilation process efficient as possible

  5. Thanks a lot, Hadar. I’ve always mixed up with the use of these prepositions. So, this video is HELPFUL for me.

  6. Thank you Hadar, it is very useful for me,
    because I always forgot how to use these prepositions.

  7. Thanks for all the great videos. They are helping me a lot to improve my English. Now my question is : What’s right, on the weekend or at the weekend?

  8. Thank you, Hadar!
    This is very helpful and easy to remember. In secondary school in my country, I was taught to memorize that month or year by itself go with in, and if it includes day, we use on. Your tip will make many students’ lives much easier
