    at or in?

    What is the right one:
    -At north, I do not manage to understand a single word.
    -In north, I do not manage to understand a single word.
    Thank you

    Hi, Sana22!

    I don't understand what you are asking. Can you use the prepositions in a sentence so we can see the context?

    Cheers,

    Re: at or in?

    hello,
    Note I'm not a teacher;

    I'd say "
    In the north ( of the country ), I do not manage to understand a single word.

    In the north ( of the country ), I can't understand a single word.

    Cheers,

    What is the right preposition to use in a sentence like:
    -()north, It is very hard to understand the way they speak.
    Is it right to say " at north" or " in north"?
    Is it clear now?

    What is the right preposition to be used in a sentence like:
    -() north, it is very hard to understand the way to speak.
    Can we say "at north" or "in north" or use another preposition?

    Thank you, sana22!

    Jaskin's response is correct.

    You need to add 'the' to your sentence: 'In the north, it is very hard to understand the way they speak.'

    'At the north' would not be correct in your sentence.

    It is possible to make your sentence more specific but we'll save that lesson for another time!

    Cheers,
    Amigo
