Quiz question 'Je suis en vacances du neuf au treize juillet.'

Shouldn't the quiz question use the de (vs du) form because we're talking about specific dates? It seems unlikely I would have the 9th thru 13th off every year?

Bonjour William ! The lesson explains that you need "du...au..." when the expression would normally use "le", which is the case for dates: You say "le 9 juillet" or "le 13 juillet", therefore you will use "de + le (du)... à + le (au) ...." with dates. Have a look at this related lesson: Expressing dates in French I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
