    in english lessons or on english lessons

    I want to see which one is right, in english lessons or on english lessons.
    I think I can use preposition in here, but someone esle thinks I should use on. I disagree with her.
    Would you please give the answer?
    Thanks a lot.

    eg. He is active in english lessons.
    Is this sentence right?

    It depends on the context:
    - I am the master in English lessons.
    - I spent money on English lessons.

    I think I can use preposition "in" here, but someone esle thinks I should use on. I disagree with her.

    Thanks a lot.
    Please use quotes around quoted material. Your first sentence is barely understandable.
    Also, you need to provide the some context. Do you have a sentence?
    The following are correct in the right place: during, in, on, of, about, notwithstanding, with ... English lessons.
    The preposition you use depends on what you are trying to say.

    What do you mean by that? It sounds strange to me.
