Any person that is learning or has learnt English knows how disorganised and complex the language is. And one of the most frustrating parts of English is prepositions. Their use often doesn't make any sense. And this is especially the case when used after verbs or adjectives, when the use of a preposition can change the meaning of the verb, or different prepositions are required after the verb for different objects/nouns.
In this second of two online exercises, we will continue to look at more examples of verbs/adjectives and their prepositions in English. The focus here is on those verbs and adjectives in English where learners often make mistakes when using a preposition.
Complete the following 15 sentences with a preposition from the question's selection box which you believe is correct for each question. In some of the questions a preposition is not necessary, so for those, select the blank answer in the selection box. You can use each preposition more than once. It is important to focus on the context and object when deciding. Click on the "Check Answers" button at the bottom of the quiz to check your answers.
When the answer is correct, two icons will appear next to the question. The first is an Additional Information Icon "". Click on this for extra information on the word/phrase and for a translation. The second is a Pronunciation Icon "". Click on this to listen to the pronunciation of the word/phrase and to do a pronunciation speaking test.
Now that you understand the new vocabulary, practise it by creating your own sentences in English with the new words/phrases.
