Prepositions are an essential part of the English language, as they help to convey the time and place of events in relation to others. However, learning prepositions can be a challenge for many students of English, as they often have few rules to follow. These Britlish Library Activities have been created to make learning and memorizing prepositions as easy and enjoyable as possible. Additionally, the Activities will also focus on the use of prepositions in phrasal verbs, which are equally important in achieving fluency in English. With interactive exercises and a focus on the most common prepositions, these Activities will help to improve your understanding and use of prepositions in English.
