    back at/in/to school

    I have, at last, understood the differences between them. Please have a run through the examples below.


    1. Back at school, I played a lot. (when I was a student)

    2. Back in school, there used to be a large playground there. (the place when I was student)

    3. Back to my school, I still can see my used-to-sat chair because they didn't throw it. (I am now visiting my used-to-attended school)

    Do you have any better comments on them?

    1. Back at school, I played a lot. (when I was a student) I would say "I played a lot when I was at school".

    2. Back in school, there used to be a large playground there. (the place when I was student) "My old school used to have a large playground".

    3. Back to my school, I still can see my used-to-sat chair because they didn't throw it. (I am now visiting my used-to-attended school) When I visit my old school, I can still see the chair I used to sit in. They haven't thrown it away.
