Bonjour Jim ! Thank you very much for this question, which highlighted some confusion in the original lesson. Indeed, "à l'extérieur de" is the way to express "outside *location*". Thanks to you, I've updated the lesson to make it much clearer, and address the distinction with "en dehors de". Please have a look: https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/view/3058 I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

Salut Aurélie, Many thanks for the clarification I needed to understand the nuance and you have helped with that point. Best wishes, Alan (Jim)
