    Harbor is American Spelling while Harbour is British Spelling.
    In indicates location, on indicates position, & at indicates the place.
    Examples: I'm in the store. I'm on the chair. I'm at the donut aisle.
    I'm is I am & I'll is I will.
    Hope this helped!

    So.

    It kind of would be helpful to tell us what YOUR native language is.

    Like, for the «on», «in», «at» questions, I would answer it, but from my perspective. And my perspective is coloured by the fact Spanish is my native language.
