The Prepositions # 1

Although the best way to learn the correct use of prepositions  is by reading and practicing more exercises  ,but there are certain rules which are worth knowing.
I think we should revise these rules from time to time to refresh our memories for the suitable use of the prepositions in our sentences .
Why don't we share and revise these rules  ? Isn't better and less boring to work together on this grammatical topic?
I will start the first discussion by :
                   
                                    1-Prepositions of place :       In - At 
 - In : suggests "enclosed"  "within an area:
         in a box  -in the room – in London –in India .
 
- At : suggests : "not enclosed" .
             at the crossroads – at the end of the road
             at the station – at the bus stop .
 ....................................................................................................................
We use at when we want to suggest that some activity is taking place :
         -He is working at his desk.
         -We saw a good film at the cinema.
         -The teacher is standing at the blackboard.
 
Note : we use these expressions " in the middle"
                                              "in the corner of the room"
                                              "at the corner of the road"
 ....................................................................................................................
  Exercise :  Fill in the spaces with the suitable preposition   ( at / in  ) and try to add more additional sentences :  Let's learn from each other :) 
 1-He put his desk ………..the middle of the room .
 2-She was born ………..a small village .
 3-Our house is ……….the top of the hill.
 4-There has been an accident …………..the corner of the street .
 5-……….my city there are two churches.
 6-There is a bus stop ……..the end of the road .
 7- Does she work ........ an office .
                                                
P.S : Your answers will be checked after a week from posting the discussion ,then you can read the next : Preposition # 2
                                                                              Thank you for reading 
  
                                                                                           -  Hala -
