Wie lange lernst du schon Deutsch? Should I use "von April an" or "ab April"? This question makes me mad:(

  • Ich... langst. Und ich lebe in Deutschland. Muttersprächler würden beide verstehen, aber nur eine von diesen ist okay, und ich kann nicht sagen, welche. :-)

1 Answer 1



It is "seit April".

"Ab April" and "von April an" can only be used for actions starting in the future.
