In die Schule vs. zur Schule

What's the difference between Fährt er dich zur Schule? and Fährt sie dich in die Schule? The translation appears to be the same (Module 5.5).  "Does he/she drive you to school?"


Danke

Hi Jordan,

"Fährt er dich zur Schule?" is "Does he drive you to school?"
"Fährt sie dich in die Schule?" is "Does she drive you to school?"

Greetings

I guess what I meant was in die Schule vs. zur Schule?

Hi Jordan,

I have not heard anyone say before  "Fährt sie dich in die Schule?  
Logically it doesn't make sense. You understand when we translate it literally it is:  "Does she drive you into school?". "in die" meaning "into".  
If the destination happens to be a tunnel, a region, the mountains then "in die" would be correct. It is a small mistake however that no one would pick up on. I definitely use "zur" = "to the" in this instance.

Let me know if you need more examples.

Grüsse

Paul
