    Closer to June/Closer or in June

    When are you going back to your home country again? - My friend asks me

    "Probably come closer to June." - I say

    VS

    "Probably come closer or in June" - I say

    Are both ok?

    Thank!

    Re: Closer to June/Closer or in June

    Neither makes much sense to me. What do you mean by 'come closer'?

    I'll make a decision when it's almost June.

    I believe I've heard something like: Once it's closer to June, I'll decide if I'm going home or not.

    Unless I've been mistaken.

    Once it's closer to June, I'll decide if I'm going home or not.Both of those are fine. Your original two are not.

    I'll decide [when it's] closer to June.
