Seasons

At times, you may want to discuss what you do in the seasons.

  • l'été (summer)
  • l'automne (fall, autumn)
  • l'hiver (winter)
  • le printemps (spring)

To inquire and receive information about the season, use the following: Quelle saison est‐ce? (What's the season?) C'est … (It's …)

The preposition en is used to express “in” with all the seasons, except with printemps, when the contraction au (à + le) is used:

  • en été (in the summer)
  • en automne (in the fall)
  • en hiver (in the winter)
  • au printemps (in the spring)
