Hello everybody! Can you help me, please? This is a sentence coming from an exercise about prepositions, there's no further context given:
"Those are my children. They're just coming FROM/ OUT OF school."
What's the right option? I'd rather say "from",which means "they're getting home after they had lessons"; but I also might use "out of" if I meant "I see the children as they are just getting out of the school building". In this case I would put "the" before school ("They're just coming out of the school.")
Do you agree? Thank you so much for your support!
Both prepositions are possible. If they are just coming "out of school" they are just exiting the school building. If they are just coming "from school" they could be anywhere along the way from school to home.
