    1. School begins at eight.
    (Does 'school' mean 'school building' or 'lesson or class'?)
    In this sentence "school" means classes.

    2. My school begins at eight.
    (What does 'school' mean here? )
    In this sentence also, "school" means classes.

    3. Christmas comes in December.
    Christmas falls on December.
    (Are both the same? Do you have other similar expressions?)
    The first is correct; the second one is not. When you use "on" in this fashion, you'd be referring to one particular date -- for example, Winter begins on December 21.

    4. He went to England by plane.
    He went to england on a plane.
    He went to England in a plane.
    (Instead of 'by plane' which one can we use? 'On a plane' or 'in a plane'?
    All three expressions are correct.

    5. He went out for shopping.
    He went out for jogging.
    He went out for a trip.
    He went out for eating together.
    He went out for taking a walk.
    He went out for going on a picnic.
    He went out for school.
    He went out for work.
    (Are the expressions all correct?)
    Only the second one and the last two could be correct, but even they are a stretch! He went out jogging. He went on a trip. He went out for a walk. He went on a picnic. He went to school. He went to work. <~~Those are better.

    6. He went to Busan on a train/in a train. (Which expression do we have to use? Can we use both 'in' and'on'?)
    In this sentence, "on a train" is better.

    7. They lived at a small town in England.
    7-1. They lived in a small town in England.
    (Which preposition do we have to use before 'a small town'?)
    The first one is correct. You wouldn't use "at" in this context. You might say, "He lived at his mother's house in a small town." But that's about it.

    7-1 is correct, sorry -- you wouldn't use "at" in this context, so 7 is incorrect, and 7-1 is correct.
