    The usage of in and at

    Hello all,

    I was wondering when to say at and in!!!

    Because sometimes you say I'm at work. Or I'm in a coffee shop.

    Why they are not the same !

    And when to use at and in ?

    thanks in advanced

    Re: The usage of in and at

    Hello I am not a teacher, but these preposition is used as the following:

    For me we use 'at' precise thing or place, like this sentence, 'The train leaves at seven' or I'm at work.

    In is when you are in the building, in the bottle, in the home.

    You can be 'at home' in front of the home but not 'in the home', but when you are in the home you are not outside but inside, do you follow me?

    Hope it's help you (I am not a teacher just a learner like you).

    See you soon on the site.
