Prepositions


Often it is the smallest things that cause you difficulty when you are trying to write a grammatically perfect sentence (as you will need to do in the Promotion exam). Usually one of the smallest words in a sentence is a preposition (in, by, with, to, for) and often you can get these wrong.


It is all about practice. By using the verb+preposition over and over again, your brain will come to associate the two together and then you will start getting them correct automatically (like 'listen to')
