    Red face Grammar

    It's good to know that we have this site to help us. Thanks for your excellent work!

    Could you help me with some problems in: verbs/prepositions?

    a) Which is correct: "on" my birthday / or "in" my birthday?
    b) And... Tell me what your free time is / or / tell me what is your free time?

    Thank you.

    on my birthday - Use "on" for specific days or dates. This includes occasions such as one's birthday.

    I would say, "Tell me when you have some free time."

    Your example sentences are grammatically correct, but they are not like how it would be said in English. I would call them unusual for English.
