I thought that with streets , roads we used the preposition Dan’s... then why are we using sur for chemin?
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
Hi Manpreet kaur,
It is the case that within the total environment (of a street) dans in used.
On a path in the countryside then it seems most appropriate to express the fact that you are walking upon a surface in an open-air situation therefore "sur".
There is more here:
Dans/sur/sous/devant/derrière/entre = in/on top of/under/in front of/behind/between (French Prepositions of Location)
Hope that this will help.
