Argh…Those Little Words That You Find Soooo Annoying !

So, What is a preposition?

Prepositions are those little words that are essential to sentences because they provide more details. They  link 2 related parts of a sentence. They are also placed in front of nouns to indicate a relationship between that noun and other words in a sentence.

So here is a list (but non exhaustive) of the most common ones. Listen to the audio as much as you want and practise them as much as you can !
