In inglés británico, we sit on chairs generally, but we might sit in a big comfy armchair.

This thread made me laugh. Nice to know we English speakers, no matter our location, are sitting on and not in chairs. Thanks!

Not in all situations though. This translationi would make sense to me if a group arrived at an event and were asked where they would like to sit. In that case, in the parts of the US where I have lived, we'd respond, "We'd like to sit in those chairs."

Were they deck chairs, I suppose one might prefer to be seated in them. :)
