Verbs + Prepositions

Average: 3.4 (20 votes)

Many students consider prepositions to be the most difficult part of the English language and it’s easy to understand why.

They are small words that are difficult to remember and can affect the meaning of a sentence enormously.

It takes memorisation and practice to use them correctly, but they are definitely not impossible to learn.

Let's look at sentences that use a verb followed by a preposition.

For example: wait for a bus not wait to a bus.

Choose the correct options. Good luck!
