Aus vs von



What is the difference between the two? I have seen the words use in sentences like these two “Ich komme aus” and “Ich komme von”.


Hallo RexV, 

"Ich komme aus" is used to say which country/region you are coming from:
Ich komme aus Deutschland. - I come from Germany (as in: I was born there). 

"Ich kommen von" is used more for general locations, like:
Ich komme von oben. - I come from upstairs. 
Ich kommen vom Supermarkt. - I come from the supermarket. 

I hope that helps.
