This course is for anyone genuinely interested in learning the use of prepositions that seem to be everywhere we look at. After all, they tend to locate us in time and space. Do we say: I am at/in hospital? Do we put something on/in writing? Does she work in/on a farm? These antique armchairs are sold at or for 2000€. Prepositions can work as adverbs or conjunctions as well. So, here we have some added difficulties to this already thorny issue.
This course also covers the use of phrasal verbs that are extremely common in English but troublesome for foreigners. Phrasal verbs can be separable or inseparable, and the most important thing to remember is that the meaning of the verb and preposition or prepositions may change. Of course, you can express yourself without having to use phrasal verbs; that is to say by using verbs. Now, the problem is that phrasal verbs are commonly used, and you may get lost in a conversation if you don’t learn at least the most common ones. Our idea is to truly help you with that. I had to make an additional effort to get rid of unwanted employees. The meeting was called off and nobody knows why.
And the course also covers an area we find fascinating; verbs that are always combined with certain prepositions, which are not phrasal verbs. I would like to think of them as clichés, and we only have to play along with them. We intend to provide you with an extensive list for you to create your own sentences. We offer you the possibility to master a great number of these structures to add pizzazz to your writing and spoken communication as well.
If you are determined to make a difference, register for this course and enjoy the ride. We are going to challenge your ingenuity.
This course is aimed at mastering the use of prepositions that can actually ruin a conversation or piece of writing. The use of prepositions as well as phrasal verbs can make a difference. However, there are certain verbs that are accompanied by certain prepositions, and those require special attention.
The course is designed for anyone genuinely interested in overcoming the difficulties we all have to experience when learning a language like English. All of us need to make use of English either for personal or professional reasons, and we feel we can bring about a positive impact in the learning process.
