Graduated from Institut Teknologi Bandung as an Industrial Engineering Bachelor

Hi! My name is Melisa, currently I’m working as a cost control at a contractor company in Makassar. When I was in college, I taught English at a homeschool community and Bahasa to foreign students. I’ve been studying English since elementary school, mostly by reading books, watching movies, and listening to podcasts. I believe that these activities are the ones which help me scored 630 on TOEFL with only one night to prepare (I’m not being haughty here, trust me, you can achieve this score as well :)) Learning takes time, and I’ll accompany you through the journey!
I was graduated from Institut Teknologi Bandung as an Industrial Engineering Bachelor, yet I have broad interest ranging from psychology, business, stocks, nutrition, physical fitness, to web development. I love learning new things, so in addition to learning English, you’ll have great conversation with me, filled with interesting stories and life-hacks 🙂

Preposition “on”, “at”, “in” digunakan untuk menunjukkan lokasi, waktu, atau sebuah obyek. Ketiga kata ini sama-sama bisa diartikan sebagai kata depan “di” atau “pada” pada Bahasa Indonesia. Inilah yang membuat kita sering bingung untuk memilih satu di antara mereka saat membuat kalimat. Coba perhatikan kalimat di bawah:

  • Aku biasanya lari di GBK.

Jika diterjemahkan ke dalam Bahasa Inggris, mana yang tepat?

  • I usually run in GBK.
  • I usually run on GBK.
  • I usually run at GBK.
