Today I have a silly question:
I have always written (I don´t know where I read it or I invented it):
I get up at about 9
but at about is correct? or
I get un about 9
Thank you in advance.
no question is a silly question if it helps you improve your language knowledge :)
at about is more correct since we need to put the preposition 'at' before times but i've heard it without 'at' several times from natives and also in the listening tasks of many coursebooks.
so you can either use at about or just about, but if i were you, i'd prefer at about because it's definitely sure that it's correct.
