Thank you, Robyn it was very useful.
Using the word"AT.it should be used when the 2nd party or more people do not know where you are or hasnt been there before,telling the person where you are.For example;I'm at the studio.(2nd party do not know where the studio is but he or she's aware that you are in the studio.

No, it has nothing to do with whether the other person has any idea where you are. "At" means in the overall area of the place, possibly inside, possibly just outside, maybe in the parking lot. "In" means inside.
wow thank you for that information.
"IN" refers to a physically comprehensible location, while "AT" is a conceptually comprehensible one. Based on this rule-of-thumb you can easily understand how they are used.

All above comments are abselutely correct, as well.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks for the explanation. It is really helpful, but I am now confused about "at school" and "at the school". Could you please clarify the difference? Thank you.
at school - doing school-related activities near or within a school

at the school - in the general vicinity of or within a particular school which was previously mentioned

Hi,
Just to say that the explanation/example is very good: simple, easy to understand. I am clear about the use, not confused. Thanks a lot.
