What’s the difference between walk through and walk in?

Thank you to subscriber ‘itshardtofind’ for asking today’s question.

This student left a comment on another video, ‘7+ Vocabulary for Talking about a House or Apartment’.

This future IELTS candidate asked if ‘walk through’ and ‘walk in’ mean the same thing when talking about entering a door.

Yes, they are completely interchangeable.

Where can you use these on the IELTS exam?

This is useful if you are asked to describe a place in IELTS Speaking Part 2, for example.

When you are describing a place such as a house or a building of any sort, you should organize your description as if you are giving a tour.

This means you can begin, of course, at the door.

High level related vocabulary

Instead of saying ‘door’, say ‘entrance’.

A nice introduction phrase could be:

‘As soon as you walk through/in the entrance, you’ll see…’

To make that even more impressive, say:

‘As soon as you walk through/in the entrance, the sight of a multitude of family photos greets you.’

Bonus vocabulary phrase

  • walk all over someone

This just means that a person or people are totally taking advantage of another person.

An example could be in the workplace.

Sometimes senior employees will walk all over a new hire, ordering them around and making them do a bunch of lowly tasks.
