    It's a huge area and takes time to master. I would recommend reading as widely as possible.

    Hi,
    I'd also advise alot of learning by rote - learn stories by heart.
    Best wishes.

    I'm not a great fan of rote learning- it seems like a huge effort for little reward with me- different strokes for different folk.

    Hi tdol,
    And who is? Reading is good, but just how much should I read to get all those prepositions firmly stuck in my head?
    I just record phrases with them and peel potatoes or do some other chores with headphones on, this seems to be the shortest way.
