    from or to ?

    Is is ok to say my house is close from here or to here? If I don't use here and instead use the word 'academy', do I still say " My house is close from academy or to academy? I want to make sure I use the word "close".

    We say:

    far from

    close to

    What did you mean exactly?

    You would say "My house is close by" or alternatively, "my house is not far from here"
    Changing the "here" to "academy" you would say "my house is close to the academy"
    As Pinkgreat says, the general rule is that we say;
    far from
    close to
    Hope this clarifies the matter.

    So, is it okay if I say " My house is close to here"?
