Hello everyone. Never use a preposition to end a sentence with…. Is it true? I was taught the whole life the opposite. Where are you from? It’s the issue I’m bother with….
Thank you, Rebecca, for the lesson.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

    Hello Nataanna ,
    As far as I know you can end a phrase with a preposition .
    e.g. Who you are speaking to
    The music I was listen to
    The person you are dealing with
    The place you are from
    The girl you are looking at
    This is the train I travelled on
    And so on ….
    Hope that help
    Bye

      Handy tips for using correctly these prepositions.

      To tell the truth, prepositions are not that easy to master. As a language learner I had to learned a good number of them by heart.

      Superb video lesson Rebecca. Have a great week!

      Monday, April 24th 2017

    This is one of those grammar rules that everyone knows—but which isn’t actually true! Ending a sentence with a preposition is perfectly acceptable.

    Sunday, April 23rd 2017

      Thank you very much for the explanation.

      Monday, April 24th 2017

Hi Rebecca mam. Thank you for this wonderful lesson. I got 10/10 in your test. Now I can imp rover my vocabulary very well. Onice again thank you.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

100. You made this lesson so easier for me. Thanks rebecca.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Hello Rebecca , hello everybody ,
Is it quite English to say ” at the intention of someone” ?
Is it possible to swap the preposition “to” by “at the intention of”
e.g. I wrote a letter at the intention of the chairman
Thank you for your comment
See you

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Thank you so much Rebecca for teaching English so easily. You always make English so easy…
Just one question: as far as I know, it is possible to say “to speak at somebody”, referring to talk to somebody rudely, is that right??
Thanks!!

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

    Hello knopfler ,
    I don’t know if it match with “speak” but it is common to say ” he yell at me” .
    So you are partially or perhaps completely right .
    See if Rebecca confirm later on
    Bye

    Sunday, April 23rd 2017

      Thanks tsamp. Yes, let´s see what Rebecca says, if she does.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Thank you

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Hey there, please teach more challenging lessons. Thanks

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

I love prepositions,but always be confused about some verbs which is more complicated. When the verb adds different prep, it turns to be different meaning, and so hard to be memorized.😭
Recently, I learned a verb”tear”, with different perp, like”away””up””down””off””apart”,the verb becomes sooooo many meanings.
That’s pretty hard to see a new combination, n figure out the meaning immediately.
Need Teacher Rebecca’s help 😇

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Nice lesson. I love Engvid!!!

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

    Saturday, April 22nd 2017

      thanks for your concern my freind

      Tuesday, April 25th 2017

Hi Rebecca thanks for this new lesson! I often make the mistake of using in instead of at, for example “John studied ‘in’ the library”. Surely it is because it is as I would say in Spanish.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Thanks Rebbeca this lesson was great…and is easy…

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

Hi Rebecca: Well, this lesson is OK, but there’s another preposition that’s even more confusing than TO, that’s IN. I mean, you can say “I eat AT this restaurant”, but you can also say “I eat IN this restaurant”, or even worse, you said “I live AT (but didn’t finish the example)”, but it’s more common (and also more natural) to say “I live IN Toronto”. In fact, most of the examples in the bracket list sound better with IN instead of AT.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday).
Marcelo.

Saturday, April 22nd 2017

    Hello Marcelo ,
    Speaking about country or a town you say “in” . Speaking about an address you will say “at” .E.g : I live in Canada , in Montreal at 1118 st catherine street .
    Eating in the restaurant means that you are eating inside it but the more general preposition to use is “at” . However it seems that if you are static at a specific room you will say “in” .E.g : I am cooking in the kitchen .
    Clearly , this lesson get us still confused .

    Sunday, April 23rd 2017

    Hi Marcelo,

    This earlier lesson of mine may help you:

Sunday, April 23rd 2017

that’s great

Sunday, April 23rd 2017

It has been a review that it’s always very useful, maybe sometimes you can confuse the movement and the situation but it isn’t usual, the concept is very clear but some phrasal verbs might induce you to an error or mistake. It had doubts with the preposition “into” and “onto” at the beginning, two prepositions of movement, and I learn how to fix this confusion with the horizontal movement for “into” and the vertical movement for “onto”, and so I solved the misunderstanding of these two prepositions. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, I prefer to review concepts that learning something new because it’s more relaxed and cozy.

Sunday, April 23rd 2017

thanks Reeca it was very useful!
