  • Many English language learners struggle with prepositions - which ones to use, where, when and how etc. This course aims to help solve that problem. It covers the grammar of prepositions as it functions in practical, real-world examples.

    Through presentations, exercises and listening, you will learn about: using different prepositions depending on positions and times; rules for using prepositions; when and when not to use prepositions; using prepositions in different situations; using prepositions to describe how things are done.
