hello marlon , I don't understand the use of "at" please can you explain me
Usind the world "at" helps tell someone where you currently are. The difference between "at" and "in"is that the physical location is general. I'm at the airport. However, in some cases you can use "at" and "in"interchangeably. I'm in the mall. I'm at the mall.
that is to say: can i use at and in in the same context? eg: i am at work, and i am in the work?
'I am in the workplace(el lugar de trabajo) ' would work.
Honestly, everybody will understand you just fine if you use "in" or "at" in the wrong place. But, here are some examples I found.
at: In or near the area occupied by; in or near the location of
in: Within the limits, bounds, or area of
People are usually using 'in' to note a general location and 'at' for a more specific location.
