AAE Q126: "in school" vs "at school"

Hi,

I would like to ask you when to use "at school" and when "in school". How it differs?

Thanks

Jana


Hi,

In most cases, we talk about people being "at" school when we're interested in their where they are now:

a: "Where is John at the moment?"
b: "He is at school"

We use "in" school to refer to the situation or activity:
"His son is only 5, but he's in school already,"


Hope this helps

M
