- For Teachers
Whatīs the difference in use between "in preparation of" or "In preparation for"? They seem both correct, but I canīt find out if there are differences in when uses which one...
I am writing my curriculum and started to doubt about putting: "I did this course in preparation of my development work in Chile" o "I did this course in preparation for my development work in Chile".
I guess with of it means that the preparation is part of the result, like "in preparation of a meal", but in this case Iīm not sure...
Do I make myself clear? Waiting for your reply...
As a NES, but not a teacher, perhaps an example might clarify the difference in usage:
I might say:
1) "I am involved in the preparation of a birthday surprise for my friend's birthday."
2) "I am involved in the preparations for my friend's birthday.,
i. e. in 1) you are actually preparing the surprise now, whereas in 2) you are preparing for something in the future.
Hope this helps
I have been confused about the usage of expressions: in+n. Such as, in preparation, in use etc.
Can I say "I am in preparation of this project" or "I am preparing for the project"? Which one is correct? What is the logic when "in preparation" is properly used in a sentence?
Similarly, shall I say "I am in use of the book" or "I am using the book'?
