    Speak English/in English

    Hi everyone,

    Are these sentences correct? Can I use preposition "in" before English? Thank you.

    1. "In the lesson I will speak only English."
    2. "At the lesson I will speak only English."
    3. "During the lesson I will speak only English."

    We don't say "At the lesson" usually. #1 and #3 are fine. You can add "in" but it's not necessary and normally when talking about languages, we don't use "in".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
