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 !"
This question relates to:French lesson "Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)"
Kwiziq language super star
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....
