Dear all :):)

Will you please share your opinion on the following sentence? I have always used "at" in similar cases whereas a friend of mine has recently told me that he prefers "in". Are both "in" and "at" grammatically correct? o_Oo_O

"As a volunteer teacher of English at/in a local organisation, I followed...."

Many thanks :):):thumbsup:

    "At" usually refers to place, so it isn't really appropriate for an organisation. If, however, the organisation has premises, then you could say that you are volunteer teacher of English at the welfare centre (or whatever it may be).
