In the conversation at the Viking excavation office, the man said: "you'll need to be here for seven o'clock tomorow to pick up your tools"
Is FOR correct?, why not AT?

Hello Bcneta,

You're correct in thinking that 'at' (or 'by', which is used with deadlines) would be correct here, and in fact it is the most frequently used preposition in such a context. 'for', however, can be used in some varieties of British English – that's why you hear it here. I'd suggest that you use 'at' or 'by' in your speaking, though.

Hello Teachers !

Thank you very much for your answer Peter . Yes , you're absolutely right . I also do not always stick to grammar rules when speaking , and it's may be funny sometimes :)

Best regards ,

Hello Teachers ,

I can't quite understand why when Ashlie asks where the aniques come from , the Shopkeeper says : Generally the UK , but also IN Europe as well . Why IN but not FROM ? As Ashlie makes her question using FROM ?

Thank you very much ,

Best regards ,

Helo iliya_b,

Yes, it is an unusual and not grammatical answer. Language is not always used fully grammatically - people make mistakes or change their minds in mid-sentence, for example. Here I guess he was thinking 'made in Europe' but did not say all of that.
