    Question Enter and entrance...?

    Hi,
    What's the preposition of enter, entrace and is entered?
    Does "enter" need "to" or "into"?

    You can say: "I enter into", simple present; "I entered into", simple past; but "entrance" is a noun, you can say "an/the entrance into".

    It varies - sometimes by personal preference.
    This is the entrance to the shop. (not into).
    His entrance in the competition surprised me.
    He entered the competition. He entered the shop.
    He entered into an agreement with her.

    Thanks very much.

    I wounder as you and Bhaisahab are both native giving me two different grammatical forms.

    And the las part means that" begin to deal with sth", yes?

    Hello,
    Is it incorrect if I use "of" in the following sentence?
    This is the entrance OF the shop.
    His entrance OF the competition surprised me.

    Thank you.

    Given that I prefaced my post with "It varies - sometimes by personal preference", I don't think bhai and I have disagreed.

    They would be less common.

    Also, it's necessary to remember that the preposition doesn't belong to the verb (or noun), but to the following phrase.
    He entered out of a spirit of competition.
