Hello, my dear readers!
Tell me, do you listen to music every day?

So in this blog I want to tell you about some must-know prepositions!
First of all, there are verbs followed by prepositions. There are also nouns and adjectives followed by prepositions.
Let’s take a look at verbs:
When we have a verb followed by a preposition, we use gerund (Verb-ing) after the preposition. For example, we say “I worry about getting a good job”, we succed in doing something.
This is a verb pattern: verb + preposition + gerund.
There are many more verbs with dependent prepositions, I advise you to write them down in your vocabulary notebook when you come across them.
As you see, there are also adjectives followed by prepositions.
Here are some of them:
And last, but not least, there are nouns
followed by prepositions.
Of course there are more prepositions, but that’s for you to discover! Write them below in the comments – share your knowledge OF prepositions
And of course, don’t forget to practice!
GOOD LUCK! :)))
