    slow in/at

    Is it 'slow in' or 'slow at'?

    Many thanks.

    Re: slow in/at

    Both are used, it depends on the context.

    He is slow at calculations (a subject/activity in general).
    He is slow in replying my letter (a specific task).

    not a teacher

    I agree with tedtmc.

    - They were too slow in notifying the police, and the criminal got away.
    - Why is that guy so slow at his job?
