I had 3 sessions with clients today and all three made the same mistake.

I figured it would be helpful to others if I shared it.

So, is it ‘in vacation’ or ‘ on vacation’ ?

Do we say ‘on holiday’ or ‘ in holiday’?

Drumroll…..ON!

 

  • I was on holiday last week. What a treat!
  • They will be on vacation until Monday. They deserve the R&R.
  • We should have been on vacation for 2 weeks but we cut it short.

For Italian learners, the mistake stems from the Italian expressions ‘IN FERIE’ & ‘IN VACANZA’.

It should be simple enough to correct now that you know.
