Test your knowledge of prepositions and improve your email writing skills!
Prepositions, particularly when part of a prepositional phrase or phrasal verb, are often problematic for learners of English. Not only can meaning be lost if incorrectly used, in some cases they can lead to a misunderstanding. For example, if you deal with children, you might be a teacher, a social worker, a carer, or a sweet shop owner. In contrast, if you deal in children you are undoubtedly a criminal!
And if you tell your boss you can’t come to work because you are looking for your sick baby (instead of looking after), they might think you are somewhat irresponsible!
