Is there a typo?

Note that you use à when describing going to or being in a city.  And you use de to indicate being, coming or returning from a city. 

Does this mean that de can also be used to describe being IN a city? 

I also want to say how much I have learned in the short time I have become a subscriber to Kwiziq- " Votre site est excellent !"

Hi Andrea, 

If you mean the use of 'de' in -

Je viens/suis  de Paris/ de la Rochelle = I  come/am from ....

it means 'from' in that instance.

Thank you also for your kind comments....
