Synonyms of "April" and their differences

A: They both mean the same thing since they are both dates. April 10th sounds a bit more formal than April 10 but it doesn’t really matter which one you use.
Q: What is the difference between from April and starting April ?
A: They are very similar. From April means that beginning in April and continuing on into other months but when you say this, you also have to say the end of the time frame. When you say starting in April, it means that beginning in April and continuing in indefinitely. Examples: From April to June we will be eating outside. Starting in April, we will be eating outside. You don’t have to be as specific when you say the end of the time frame in the first sentence but you do have to have an “end”. Example: From 9 a.m on, we will be in the conference room.

A: @Koreakimchi Hmm.. Yes, but you can use all three with anyone. It's a very subtle difference, and you would not really offend anyone, even though the tone is different. it's less about how close you are to the person like in Korean, and more about being apologetic, or if you were bragging. Like if my friend was going to Europe for vacation, I would say "I'm going to travel in April!" but if my friend is working very hard I would say "I'll be traveling in April."
Q: What is the difference between I'll be busy from this April and I'll be busy from this coming April ?
A: No difference. "This April" can mean "this year's April" or "next April". In situations when it's unclear, "coming" is used to make it clearer, but you used "will" in your sentence so "coming" is not necessary (you can still use it though).
