Points To Remember

Remember, unlike in English, where the names of the months are capitalized, in French, they are generally written in lowercase unless they begin a sentence. For example, “janvier” rather than “Janvier.”

The preposition “en” is used with months to indicate when something happens. For example, “en janvier” (in January), “en février” (in February).

When mentioning months, no definite or indefinite article is needed in French. For example, “Je pars en vacances en juillet” (I go on vacation in July), not “en le juillet.”

Pay attention to these grammatical peculiarities to ensure accuracy and fluency in your French writing and speaking.


Gaining fluency in French can facilitate smooth conversation and cross-cultural comprehension.
