I am not sure if: Born in 1996 < for example is a right form? or there is something else instead of "in" ?

1 Answer 1


From this website (see fenixpollo's answer):

Born in:

  • born in + year — I was born in 1980.
  • born in + month — I was born in October.
  • born in + place — I was born in Guadalajara.

Born on:

  • born on + day — I was born on Saturday.
  • born on + date — I was born on the 4th of July.
  • "in" is used when there are multiple days in the timeline you're referring to such as the year, the month, the week, etc. "on" if you're referring to a specific day.
