Prepositions to and of
When do I use to and when do I use of?
Can both prepositions be used? For example, is it the barriers of effective listening or the barriers to effective listening?
This is for my communication applications’ class. I’m presenting reasons why people do not listen effectively. I want to know which one is correct.
“The ten barriers of effective listening” or “The ten barriers to effective listening”.
This is my topic.
"The ten barriers to effective listening" is the correct one to express that there are things preventing people listening well.
"ten barriers of effective listening" will say that it is "effective listening" which is making barriers.
