🙏 @ Adeshina Lukmon, Thank you for your question.

 

😀 As usual, I will try to explain the difference using simple language and plenty of examples.

 

English prepositions can be quite challenging to students of English. Today, we are going to look at some of them we use every day to talk about time.
 
Three of the most common prepositions of time – at, on, and in – follow certain basic rules.
 
  • AT refers to a very narrow, specific time, such as 4:30 or 7:00 o’clock.
  • ON refers to a slightly broader time, of one day or one date, such as Sunday or May 22.
  • IN refers to the widest time period, such as a month, a year, a season, a decade, and so on.
 
 
AT – SPECIFIC TIME
  • at 5:00 See you at 5:00!
  • at 12:30 The meeting starts at 12:30.
  • at noon We serve lunch at noon.
  • at midnight I’ll be asleep at midnight!
  •  
 
More expressions with AT
  • at the moment She’s busy at the moment.
  • at the same time Both flights arrived at the same time.
  • at this time We have no positions available at this time.
  • at that time At that time, they were in Rome.
  • at sunrise The air is so clean at sunrise.
  • at sunset I love walking by the beach at sunset.
  • at lunchtime The café was crowded at lunchtime.
  • at dinnertime We’ll talk about it at dinnertime.
  • at night By the way, Jack called at night.
 
 
On – a day or date or repetitive days
 
  • one day on Monday The concert is on Friday.
  • one date on Jan 5th I’m seeing my dentist on May 10th.
  • repetitive days
  • on days of the week Tuesdays My yoga class is on Tuesdays.
  • on Independence Day I love watching the fireworks on Independence Day!
  • on your birthday What did you do on your birthday?
  • on their anniversary He gave her a gold necklace on their anniversary.
  • one day + time of day
  • on Monday morning Do we have a class on Monday morning?
  • on Friday evening On Friday evening, we usually go out for dinner.
  • on Thursday night Where did you go on Thursday night?
 
Expressions with on
 
  • on time We made it to the exam on time.
  • on the dot The organisers started the conference on the dot.
  • on the hour The clock chimes on the hour.
 
Try to make sentences about yourself, i.e. what you do at particular times and memorise them. This way you will easily learn how to use them. Keep practising every day and you will be fluent in no time.

 

Make sure you do our *TT exercises to practise asking questions in English.
