Preposition

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Preposition

Preposition

Preposition tell us where or when something is in relation to something else. When your visitors are approaching, it’s good to have these special words to tell us where those visitors are. 

Are they behind us or in front of us? Will they be arriving in two minutes or at noon?

Prepositions often tell us where one noun is in relation to another (for example, “The coffee is on the table beside you”). But they can also indicate more ideas, such as purpose or contrast (for example, “We went for a walk despite the rain”).

Types of Prepositions

Prepositions indicate direction, time, location, and relationships, as well as other types of relationships.

Direction: Look to the left and you’ll see our destination.
