Synonyms of "Arrive" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between When would it arrive? and when does it arrive? ?
A: When would it arrive?-- you are asking in advance. Before it starts to come

When does it arrive?-- when it's on it's way. You want to know when it gets to you
Q: What is the difference between arrive and reach ?
A: Usually arrive is used more often in talking about getting to the end of a journey whereas reach can be used as getting to a location on a long journey but not the end. Arrived sounds more final.. Reached also needs a noun or location whereas arrive does not.
For example, you can say "I just arrived" to a friend if they are asking if you have made it to the destination. You can't say "i have reached," you would need to say "I have just reached the airport." Arrive
Q: What is the difference between arrive at and arrive in ?
A: Arrive at is followed by a place or a time
Arrive in is followed by a mode of transport or when you are in a place, and sometimes how far (in minutes/hours) you are from a place

Arrive at 9pm // Arrive at the hotel
Arrive in a car // Arrive in a plane // Arrive in the airport // Arrive in the hotel // Arrive in 5 minutes

An expression we also use is "arrive in style"
Q: What is the difference between When I arrived, she had waited for me there. and When I arrived, she was waiting for me there. ?
A: If you use the past perfect you're emphasising the fact that she waited and it's not clear if she was still there or not. It's possible, for example; that she got tired of waiting and left before you arrived.

If you use the past continuous, it's very clear that she was there.


If you want to use an additional tense, which would be appropriate in this situation, you could use the PAST PERFECT CONTINUOUS:

"....she had been waiting."

This is very similar to just using the past perfect but it emphasises the continuous nature of waiting.
Q: What is the difference between arrive and come ?
A: @rtavares:

to arrive - chegar
When will you arrive at my house? (this is a planned visit)

to come - vir
When will you come to visit me? (this is a potential or possible visit)

Acho que a mesma distinção existe no português.
