Could you please let me know which sentence is better (more correct)?
1) C'est difficile à croire qu'il est
déjà le mois d'octobre

2) .....que nous avons déjà le mois...

3) ..que nous écrivons déjà le mois...

Merci beaucoup de votre aide.

    Actually I would have said that whether you use "il est difficile..." or "c'est difficile" you are using an impersonal expression that states your opinion, and does not necessarily fact. Therefore I would have used the Present Subjunctive in all those cases.

    Otherwise it would be #1.

    So, would it be:
    "Il est difficile de croire qu'il soit
    déjà le mois d'octobre"?
    But is it not a fact, that it is already October? I don't understand why it would just be a personal opinion.
    Thank you in advance for your help and explanation.

    If you state it as fact, #1.
