Hi, I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about how to use preposition. A preposition is a word that helps to show the relationship between a noun or pronoun, and another word in the sentence. So you use it to indicate a relationship. In time for example, whether for a month or during a month. You can also use it to represent position in space. So for example, we are on an island. A verb plus a preposition is often to show relationship. For example, that accounts for his success. The word for is a preposition that shows relationship between that pronoun "that" and the success. So, you can use prepositions in a variety of ways, and again they're used to indicate a relationship between the noun or pronoun, and another word. So those are some ideas on how to use a preposition.
