View topic - で、に、へ ？？？
に Shows location, kind of like the one that locates the other two. Correct me if I'm wrong. It also can show when such as time, where , and other things I don't know.
で Shows location as well, but in a different way. It shows where the verb will happen and can be controled by に
ex: 私たちは魚屋で５時３０分に行きます。 At 5:30, we will go to the fish shop.
へ Shows location of current time. Not sure
イチゴはカラクラへいます。 Ichigo is at karakura (town)
I want someone to explain these to me wth examples because I wanna master these, tell me when you use them such as with objects, subjects, verbs ect... and stuff.

で indicates a much more general location than に. This is why it is used with place of work, as you generally don't stay in one place while working, and why に is used with verbs like 座る, as you generally don't move around while sitting.

I would have said: 私たちは５時３０分に魚屋へ行きます
I would have said: イチゴはカラクラにいます
Also notice that the place where one works（働く）needs the particle で, while the place where one is employed（勤める）wants the particle に. For instance
Please anyone correct me if I got this wrong.
