Hi! I get confuse on the usage of prepositions "in" and "at". Please help me on this. I want to know the rules. Thanks.
Yes - of course though that is not the problem in John Adams's question. It will be interesting to hear from maicamacho with some examples.
You seem to misunderstand me - or maybe I am just very bad at making a point.
Johns Adams made this comment:
For example, why do they say:
- I work at school, at factory, at museum...
- I work in hospital
My response to him was to point out that in fact his "at" examples are in fact just as correctly [if not more correctly] in school/in a school/in the school; in a factory/in the factory; in a museum/ in the museum as I work in hospital/in a hospital/in the hospital.
These are equally correct:
I am at school this week
I am due at the factory today
I work at the museum
His car is at the hospital
The train is at the station
I am sorry if you feel I am not being clear.
