In this lesson, you will learn the difference between ‘in’ and ‘inside’. They cannot be used interchangeably.

In:

In is used in general in the context, to be at a place or participate in something. It does not always mean that you are confined to walls.

  • Example: I am in the group. (participate in the group)
  • Example: We are in China. (not ‘inside’ as you are not confined to walls)
  • Example: The students stood in a circle. (formed a circle)
  • Example: The jacket comes in four sizes. (available in 4 sizes)

Inside:

Inside is used when you say something is physically enclosed or confined to a barrier.

  • Example: The clothes are inside the wardrobe. ( the clothes are confined to the walls of the wardrobe)
  • Example: The books are inside the drawer. (physically enclosed)
  • Example: The students stood inside the circle. (they were inside the boundaries of the circle drawn on the ground)
  • Example: The mobile is inside the pocket.
