Hi Guys,

1) I would like to know when to use (on, in, at)?

2) When to say I AM (GOING HOME) OR (GOING TO HOME) ?

You can only use "going home"

OK BUT BASED ON WHAT. I MEAN WHAT IS THE IDEA BEHIND THIS
BECAUSE I CAN SAY
I AM GOING HOME
I AM GOING SCHOOL
BUT I SHOULD NOT SAY (I AM GOING STADIUM)

"Home" in this context is uncountable - it is essentially "abstract", as is school in a similar context.

Both take an article if there is an adjective attached, turning them into countable nouns - specific locations: I went to his home; They have a happy home; I am going to the school on the corner; She went to an all-girls' school.

"Stadium" is only countable.
