    see you IN and see you AT
    I don't know the difference between see you IN and See you AT.
    Please tell me the difference and usages.

    Yanagi,
    Perhaps the following examples will help you:
    * I will see you in Tokyo when I visit Japan.
    * I will see you in thirty minutes.
    * I will see you in my dreams.
    * I will see you in your classroom when I observe your teaching style.

    * I will see you at the shrine sometime today.
    * I will see you at 3:07 p.m. today.
    * I will see you at the starting line of the race.

    If these examples don't help you, I will see you in this forum later today!

    The preposition in shows :
    1.area/place : I`ll see you in London. I`ll see you in my lab.
    2. with time expressions : I`ll see you in two weeks from now on. I`ll see you in April.

    The preposition at shows or it is used with:
    1. destination, location:
    I`ll see you at the bank.
    2. with time expressions :
    I`ll see you at the end of the day/at the weekend / at Christmas.
    3.address
    I`ll see you at 33 Maple Bvd.

    You are welcome!

    A little correction:

    Advice - uncountable noun
    You can say "It`s a good piece of advice

    or

    It`s good advice /some good advice.

    Some more on the use of prepositions:

    PREPOSITIONS

    Below are common problems with prepositions found on the TOEFL.

    At, On, and In

    These prepositions are very common in describing a place or describing a time. Although prepositions have a regular form, we are going to look at the advanced cases. Please be very careful with the exceptions.


    Place

    At.....referring to a specific place

    ...at the doctors office

    ...at number 10 Main Street

    ...at the corner of 5th and 17th


    On....referring to a general area

    ....on the playing fields

    ....on Main Street

    ....on top of the building

    ....on the side of the road

    In....referring to a much more general place

    ...in Madrid

    ...in the classroom

    ...in the countryside

    ...in the urban area

    Consider this example:

    I live at number 10 on Simon Avenue in London.

    Consider these exceptions:

    We were on the beach.

    I will meet you on the corner of 5th in ten minutes.

    He was in the apartment on Main Street.

    Time

    At...referring to a specific time

    ...at 10 o’clock

    ....at sunset

    ....at midnight



    On...referring to a particular day

    ...on Monday

    ...on July 23rd

    ...on the first day of the month



    In....referring to a general period of time

    ...in the Middle Ages

    ...in 1998

    ...in ten minutes

    Consider this example:

    Classes will begin at 6:30 on Monday in September.

    And consider these exceptions:

    at night

    in the evenings

    at present

    over the weekend

    at Christmas
