    along/ along with

    I have a problem with the use of along and along with. I am not sure where to use along and where not.

    You come with me/ you come along with me. what's the difference between these two sentences? Is there any rule to remember to remove the confusion?

    One more thing .. I have done my schooling from XYZ school. Can we use the term schooling? Is it colloquial. If not, then how can we answer the question' where have you done your schooling'? I think, my this question' where have you...' would be wrong. Don't know how to tell in a better way. I hope that readers will understand it.( will or i can say would understand it, also) .lots of doubts

    Re: along/ along with

    You come along with me is an emphatic form.

    You can use "schooling". It is somewhat unusual today, but not impossible. Yhe phtrasing would be "I had my schooling at XVZ school".

    Generally it has taken on the meaning of coaching in something specific - I schooled my dressage horse daily to achieve the necessary standard.

    Re: along/ along with

    It means where ever we are using with, we can add along also along with it, just to make it an emphatic form?

    Only if you are talking about someone coming with you.
