The flight arrived AT ten o'clock.
It was right ON time.
I tried to ask her out ON a date.
But her boyfriend was IN the security area waiting for her.
She got IN a car with her.
I saw her later on AT WalMart.
She was ON the other side of the store.

When you were a child, you probably learned more advanced 漢字 in school and from reading, right? English vocabulary works the same way. これが「英語多読」方法だ。I don't have very good Japanese yet, but I study Japanese by reading storybooks. Reading has introduced me to many more words. Try it!
