    What is the difference between "in here" and "here"?

    Could you tell me if there is a difference between these two words "in here" and "here".

    Many people tell me that it is depends on the location or something like that, but I am a little bit confused.

    Thanks.

    Yes, there is a difference. Which one you should use depends on the context.

    "In here" requires you to be "in" somewhere; a room for example. As in, "It's very hot in here.".

    However, on a beach you would not be in anything, so you would just say "It's very hot here.".

    On a beach you might even say, "It's very hot out here." as you would not be indoors.

    Further to bhai's remark about context, it is often a question of tone.

    For example, I've been unhappy since I got here is more likely to be uttered by a professor, while I've been unhappy since I got in here is more likely to be uttered by a prisoner.
