I am wondering if both a teacher and a student can say "I go to school"

These arre the sentences in the worksheet.

"Lesley is an ESOL teacher at Hackney College. She goes to college by bicycle at 8.30."

Thanks in advance.

No. Only a student goes to school. A teacher goes to the school.

"She goes to the college by bicycle at 8:30." (note the colon)

Thank you so much ~~

How? But yes, I am one.

anonymousOnly a student goes to school.

Is "to school" a prepositional phrase or a verb phrase (a VP of purpose) in the sentence above?

Yes.

No. That usage is comparatively rare. Plus, it wouldn't occur without a direct object (to school us; to school the children; etc.) as in goes to school.

He got a petty criminal from his neighborhood [ to school them on how to break and enter ].

When talking generally, these words don't mean the same thing in the UK.
