Improve your English with this quiz.

Apr 24, 2012

Hi guys!

Most students love English error corrections, and so do I, so today I'm going to give you some sentences to fill in, with answers of course.
We're going to look at prepositions that collocate with verbs.

Before we start, just a quick note about verbs and prepositions. There is a difference between verbs that have complementary prepositions and phrasal verbs: Many verbs are followed by propositions that you need to put between the verb and the object- E.g.You have to listen to this cd. On the other hand, there are also many verbs that use a preposition/adverb to change the meaning. These are phrasal verbs. E.g. Compare- He cheated (at golf). with He cheated on his wife. Two very different meanings. That's the difference between normal verbs and phrasal verbs.

Anyway, now you can try these. Fill in the gap with a preposition (or nothing).

1. You'll have to wait_______ the bus.
