Prepositions of Time

Prepositions of Time

Prepostions are those little words that show the relationship between a noun or pronoun to another word in a phrase, clause or sentence. Words such as ‘with’, ‘against’, ‘about’ and ‘on’.

They may be ‘little words’ but they are important little words because they reveal place, time, direction, manner and connection, amongst other things.

I’ve been learning about prepositions with my Italki teacher, Andrés, here’s the notes from today’s lesson on Prepositions of Time.
