Belajar Preposition in Time Expressions dalam Bahasa Inggris

Belajar Preposition in Time Expressions dalam Bahasa Inggris 



Sore ini dengan kondisi tubuh yang tidak begitu sehat, saya masih menyempatkan diri untuk belajar dari salah satu video yang yang di unggah oleh channel Anglo-Link. Kali ini saya belajar tentang kata depan atau Preposition dalam bahasa Inggris. Dalam video saya menemukan penjelasan tentang preposition beserta contoh dan latihannya yang di kemas sedemikian rupa sehingga enak untuk dipelajari. Dalam tulisan ini saya  akan menuliskan apa yang ada di dalam video tersebut tanpa mengartikannya ke dalam bahasa Indonesia karena lebih baik kalau saya memahami dalam bahasa Inggris. 

Berikut pembahasan Preposition in Time Expressions 


A few tips - at

at + precise time : at 5:30, at noon, at sunrise

at + word ’time’ & ‘moment’ : at that time, at the moment

at + special times of the year : at Christmas, at Easter

at night = during the night

at the weekend (British English) = during the weekend (American English : on the weekend)

A few tips: on & in

On + day & date: on Monday, on 15th June

On + word ‘day’ and ‘ date’ : on Independence Day, on that date

In + month, season & year: in January, in winter, in 1999

Note : 
  • in 5 days = when 5 days are over
  • Within 5 days = between now and 5 days from now
  • On time = at the arranged time
  • In time = not too late

A few tips – for, during, since & while

For + a length of time: for 2 hours, for 3 days

During + an activity: during the speech, during the trip

During (on in)+ a period : during the morning, during the day, during this month, but you can also say in the morning, in the day, in the month

Since + point of time in the past until now: since 9:30, since his arrival

While + an action: while sleeping or (with the verb) While I was sleeping

A few tips – until & by

‘until’ marks the end of an action:

I’ll be here until Wednesday.
She worked until midnight yesterday

By = before/ no later than:

I will have finished this report by Wednesday
By noon yesterday, we had been waiting for 3 hours.
