[JLPT grammar] ​”I will go alone.”, ひとりで行きます, Why use で?

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N3 course!



ひとりで行きます, “I will go alone.”,
Why use で? I thought it was に.
Can you explain?


[My Reply]

This で indicates the number of actors.
We use it for action verbs.

I (will) eat alone.

Soccer is played with 11 players.

The three of us will travel together.

If you want to indicate a destination, use に with 行く.

I (will) go to Japan.

I (will) go to school.

My family of four is going to Singapore.


I hope my answer helps you.😊

I will teach you until you get it!
