In or at house: Qual preposição usar?

Padawan
Hi guys,

I was studying English, then I found an exercise that says "at your house". I know that "home" claims "at" preposition, but, honestly, I've always used "in" as "house" preposition.

So, can I use preposition "at" with "house"?

Regards.

Olá Padawan,

É comum se usar "at" apesar de "in" também ser usado.Veja:

1)At home
Ex:I was at home.(Eu estava em casa.)

2)At your house
Ex:What happened at your house?(O que aconteceu na sua casa?)


Bons estudos!

Hi donay,

Thanks for your answer. My doubt is about "house". I've always used "in house", and I guess i've never seen "at house" before today. "At" and "in" are very close one each other, but I thought I couldn't use "at house", like I can't (I can't, right?) use "in home".

(God, what a messy I made :lol: .)

So, can I use "at house"? Is that acceptable?

Regards.

Olá Padawan,

Você deve dizer "at home" e "at my house","at your house","at her house",etc.
