Words like “to”, “from”, “in”, “at”, “on” etc are called prepositions. For example, in the sentence ‘The book is on the table’, “on” is the preposition. We say “on the table” because the table is a surface and “on” is used with surfaces. As you can see, a preposition is used to indicate location, time or position of an object.
While most prepositions have a definite purpose, choosing the right preposition can be tricky for non-native speakers since there is no fixed rule for which preposition would go with a specific word. In this video, we tackle sixteen such examples where prepositions are frequently used wrongly. These expressions are commonly used in day-to-day conversations, so it is important that you know their right usage.
