[place]+particle で vs に (de vs ni) :JLPT Grammar

[Student’s sentence]


Come and visit my house tomorrow.




[My correction]


Come and visit my house tomorrow.


You need to use に in phrases like [place]に来る because it corresponds to 来る in 私の家に来る, which means ‘come to my house’. Although で is used in sentences like 私の家で遊ぶ (play at my house), in this sentence the key verb is 来る, not 遊ぶ, so you should use に.



I came to the library to study.


I plan to come to the office to work on Sunday too.


Please do not come to the park to play football.
