[JLPT grammar] Difference between まで and かけて.

Today I am going to share the homework correction quoted from my JLPT N3 course!
The student’s sentence is not correct. Can you find the mistake?


[Student’s sentence]


札幌:The largest city on the island of Hokkaido



[My correction]

In Sapporo, it often snows between November and March.


〜から〜にかけて indicates a range with a vague beginning and end, where the condition may be intermittent.
〜から〜まで indicates the entire span between the two points, with the condition continuing throughout that time.
In this sentence, にかけて is used because some days it snows and some days it does not.

The festival will take place from February 3 to 5.

You can approximately see cherry blossoms from March to April.


I hope my explanation helps you. 😊
