👋🏻 Hi Larry, We usually say, I'm AT the shop, unless we want to emphasize that we are inside the shop, in which case we say, I'm IN the shop. I hope this helps. 😀
You use in the shop when you are inside the shop as at the shop when you arrive at the shop
Hi Larry! We can use both with a slight difference between their meanings. AT the shop can mean both inside the shop or nearby, outside IN the shop emphasize that we are inside, not outside.
At - is used for a point, at the door, at the crossroads In- for en enclosed space, in the building, in a car In this case both centences are correct, at the shop or if you want to be more specific you can say in the shop
Both correct but in means inside white at means wthin the place where the shopis located.
I'm in the shop is the right way to say. In _Means you are inside the shop. At _Means ,you are outside or not inside the shop .My understanding.
I'm in the shop is the right way of saying it. Hope i helped you in a.way.
Hi Larry. When you say "in the shop" you are so specific in other words "space", on the other hand,"at" is used to show "place".
Hi Larry Both sentence are correct. But one specifies exactly where you are to be located easily without stress. And that is ( IM IN THE SHOP )
Hello Larry! Both expressions are correct. The difference depends on the context: ‘In the shop’ indicates that you’re inside already. ‘At the shop’ expresses the fact that you’re close to it or around it. Hope that clarifies your question.
Dear Larry, Both statements are correct,they are prepositions, indicating where you are at that moment, you in the shop means that you are right inside the shop, you are at shop means that you are nearer to the shop. Hope that has answered your question? If not feel free to contact me for more explanation.
