I have two grammatical questions. Could you answer me please?

  • “我每个星期六晚上都会回家”, “我每个星期天会早上六点起床” These sentences describe habits. I think in English and in French the present tense is used to describe habits, and “will” cannot be used. Could you explain why it is possible to use “会” in sentenses which describe repeated actions?
  • “今年我住学校”,“今年我住在学校” Are these two sentenses the same?

Thank you.
