You "join in" a group activity as it happensDear teachers,
I think 'join ' and 'join in ' confusing. The following is from my dictionary:
1.join in (sth): to become involved in an activity with other people
She watches the other kids playing but she never joins in.
You all seemed to be having such a good time that I thought I'd join in the fun.
2. join: to get involved in an activity or journey with another person or group:
I don't have time for a drink now, but I'll join you later.
Why don't you ask your sister if she would like to join us for supper?
Does this mean 'join in ' and 'join' are interchangeable in this sense? For example, can I replace 'join ' in the 'I don't have time for a drink now, but I'll join you later.' with 'join in'?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
