Usa correctamente la preposition ‘By’ en inglés

By

Students sometimes use ‘by’ incorrectly, as they always use it to translate ‘por‘.  In English, it can be used to mean ‘near’ or ‘next to’ (which are different!), ‘no later than’ or talk about the mode of transportation we use.  We also use ‘by’ to talk about who the author of a work of art or book is.
