Prepositions Quiz - 10 Questions

Average: 3.3 (7 votes)

Have you ever been to New York? If you haven't, you really should. When you are there you feel like you are in the capital of the world. It's the one city (in my opinion) that everyone should visit at least once in their life. I've been lucky enough to go twice, but I'd love to go again. Perhaps I should ask my boss to transfer me to our English school in Manhattan, EC New York! From the pictures I've seen of the school, it looks amazing. It's right in the centre of the city, it's  modern and it has wonderful views from its home on the 14th floor of a skyscraper building. Who knows, maybe I'll see you there!!

Here are some facts about New York. Choose which prepositions are missing from each sentence. I hope you remember what prepositions are. That's right, on, in and at, are all examples of prepositions. That:s enough talk. Do it!
