ce mois-ci I know 'ce mois' means this month but I'm not sure why (-ci) is attached. Could someone explain? The full sentence is: ce mois-ci, nous vous proposons un test - this month we offer you a test Merci!

It's because 'ce' can mean both 'this' and that'. If you want to distinguish between them, you add 'ci' or 'là' ce mois-ci = this month ce mois-là = that month

it emphasizes this (ci) or that (là). In fact, "ce mois" without "ci" or "là" is seldom used.
