Good to know: in English you need to capitalize the names of the months, but not in French.
In English, the months of the year are introduced by the preposition “in” when you want to say when something happens. For example, you can say:
- Summer begins in June.
In French, to say which month something takes place or happens, you can introduce the month with the preposition “en”, or say “au mois de ”:
- L’été commence en juin.
- L’été commence au mois de juin.
Note the word “mois” is a masculine noun: le mois
