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!

 

Hi Else,

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

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.
