In a month or year

The lesson says you never use dans for months or years. So if a delivery will be made in one month you don’t say la livraison sera effectuée *dans* un mois?

Bonjour Rose Marie,

The lesson is trying to explain that "dans" cannot be used with specific months or years:

La livraison sera effectuée dans en mai/2024.

Also, you can say "dans un mois" ("dans un an" (= in a year's time) sounds quite unlikely for a delivery):

La livraison sera effectuée dans un mois. The delivery will be made in a month.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Rose Marie,

"you don’t say la livraison sera effectuée *dans* un mois?"

No!   as per the lesson  --  but you could express this with "La livraison sera effectuée d'ici un mois"

Hope this helps.

Bonne continuation

Jim
