TOPIC: Prepositions of Place/Location


GOAL: To learn about the proper use of prepositions of place/location

Level: Easy


Exercise #1: Read about Prepositions of Place and then proceed to Exercise #2

A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.

Even for the most advanced students, propositions can always use more practice. Many verbs are (usually) followed by certain prepositions. Some even entirely change the meaning of a verb by turning it into a phrasal verb.  Learners just have to memorize most prepositions, especially those that follow certain verbs (and even more so for those that create phrasal verbs). Some prepositions can be used interchangeably depending on the situation. This just adds more confusion for people learning English.

The good news is that prepositions of place, perhaps, are among the most consistent (that is, they have fewer exceptions). Prepositions of place are almost logical, if you can understand the preposition on its own.

As I write, we are flying over the Pacific Ocean and I am looking down at the Great Barrier Reef below. I’m imagining what Australia might be like, and I’m getting excited. I’m wondering if I’ll have time to visit my old university friend Dave while we’re in Brisbane.  I hope so – he said he’s expecting me and that he’s looking forward to it.
