Claudine,



a. I live near the school. / Eu moro perto da escola. -->Não use "nearby" neste caso.
b. Do you work near here? /Você trabalha aqui perto? --> Pode-se usar "nearby" no lugar de "near here".

I live near the school. / Eu moro perto da escola. = I live nearby.

Do you work near here? /Você trabalha aqui perto? = Do you work nearby?

I live near the school which is in Montreal. = The school is in Montreal, and I live nearby.

I live near the factory on the hill. = There is a factory on the hill, and I live nearby.

You mentioned the church on the corner of First Street and Central Avenue. Do you live near it? = You mentioned the church on the corner of First Street and Central Avenue. Do you live nearby?

As you can see, "nearby" takes the place of "near + location".
