    1. 1. PREPOSITION Demah Naif 08120060
    2. 2. A preposition may be defined as : connecting word showing the relation of a noun or a noun substitute to some other word in the sentence .
    3. 3. Prepositions cause problems because sometimes they can be used interchangeably (He sat on the chair : He sat in the chair), because prepositions are often combined with verbs to create phrasal verbs (to look after someone ; to look down on someone), and because a single preposition can be used to express several different ideas (He is tall for his age; I swam for an hour).
    4. 4. • Prepositions are used to express a number of relationships , including time, location, manner, means, quantity, purpose, and state or condition. The following outline demonstrates the uses of common prepositions.
    5. 5. Incorporate the activity in class • Keep your vocabulary simple. Younger children can learn the concept of prepositions without having to learn the terminology for it. Use simple phrases, like "today we're going to learn about all the places you can go," or "let's talk about what you can do," rather than telling the students you're going to give them a grammar lesson on prepositions.
