It's true my birthday is in november!

why "in novembre" and not "a novembre"?

I'm italian, this sentence is wrong. "Il mio compleanno è a novembre" this is right.

Thanks for --a novembre--

I also wonder why --in November--and not --a November.

Happy November birthday, Duolingo! Now we know when it is!

Most of the times, duolingo says it HAS to be 'ad' and not 'in'. So why now the 'i ', after all?

I was wondering this too


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/M.artine

I figured it out. My Italian friend says both can be used interchangeably.

In English we capitalise the first letter of months. Is that the same in Italian?

It is my birthday in november isn't accepted

Dear Duolingo - if I use an apostrophe in my translation, please NOTE the apostrophe, which is a correct shortening of 'birthday is' and do NOT tell me I have 'missed a space'.

It's generally a good idea to avoid that abbreviation in Duo because it so closely resembles the possessive form.

Also, these forums are not closely monitored by Duo. If you want to report a problem you need to do it on the page itself.

Should i be happy or concerned that Duo knows my birthday month
