Preposition of place

Remember that we use to after verbs of movement, such as go, come, bring and take, return.

Examples:

Bring your books to the lesson.

Go to the cinema.

Will you come to my party?

However arrive is followed by in or at and home does not need a preposition

Examples:

We arrived at the station

We arrived in Paris

You can go home

 

There are some other differences which we will look at in preposition of time

The Use of in and at

 

We use in with towns and countries:

Paris is in France.

We use at for other places. However for many places we can use at or in:

In stresses that it’s a more permanent state:
