Preposiciones de lugar

In the simplest terms, a preposition is a word that can link verbs, nouns, and pronouns together. The next video explains prepositions:

Another explanation of prepositions:

A preposition of place is a word used to refer to the location of something or someone. The following are a few:

Preposiciones / Prepositions: in front of, behind, in the middle of, between, above, below, across from, to the left / to the right, inside of, in / on the corner (of), on, under, next to.

Verbos compuestos

Phrasal verbs are phrases that indicate actions. They are generally used in spoken English and informal texts. Phrasal verbs consist of a verb and a preposition or an adverb:

Verbos compuestos / phrasal verbs: go down, go up, take- turn right / left, walk, drive, go straight ahead, go forward, go back, go by, get off, get on, stop at.

Phrasal verbs with go:

Phrasal verbs for everyday:

Verbos relacionados al uso del tiempo

Verbos de tiempo / time related verbs: spend time, invest time, save time, waste time + verb(ing)

Check the following short film:

Does the person spend time, invest time, save time or waste time?

Do you know the compass points?

Puntos cardinales / Compass points: north, south, east, west.

All of the topics we studied during this lesson are important to express and give directions to get from one point to another.

Are you ready to give directions? Check the following:

For more practice check the Dialog giving directions:

Are you able to give somebody directions to get from the bus terminal of your community to your house?


Remember that a preposition is a word that shows the relationship between a word in the sentence and the word that is the object of the preposition. Prepositions can never be alone, so it makes sense to learn about prepositions in their phrases.

Also, a phrasal verb is a combination of two or three words including a base verb. The whole phrase acts as a verb that is different from the base verb used.
