En ?

En été, je mange beaucoup de glaces!
In summer, I eat a lot of ice cream!

L'été, on bronze sur la plage.
In summer, we tan on the beach.

(i don't understand why it is not "En été, on bronze sur la plage"

This question relates to:
French lesson "Prepositions with seasons: en, l', au"

Hi Else,

either option is fine: en été or l'été. You could just as well say en été on bronze sur la plage.

Hi Else,

As the lesson says, you can use either  'en' or 'l'  for été , hiver, automne and 'au' or 'le' for printemps.

Hope this helps!

thanks - I thought 'en' might be for the more general statement and 'L' ' for the more specific activity in the season?

Nope, either is fine.
