'Belong in' versus 'Belong to'


Would you say that the use of in is correct here?

1- He belongs in a different world!

Shouldn’t it be to?


Not necessarily, Tom. Using “in” expresses a sense of location. i.e. where he belongs/should be.


Amy, can I say “She belongs in teaching.” ?

Yes, you can, Tamara. :smiley:
It more or less means that she should be in the teaching profession.

More and even more :slight_smile: :smiley:

Thanks, Amy.
