    Preposition... oh...

    Hello everyone! I'm from Russia and I'm studying English and having some problems. My first problem which I hope you'll be able to decide is a prepositions... What rules about preposition? For example: "I'm afraid of flying"
    why we've used preposition "OF"? When I was searching I've found website with prepositions, there were these
    Afraid OF
    Amazed AT or BY
    Angry ABOUT something (but angry WITH somebody FOR doing something)
    Annoyed ABOUT something (but annoyed WITH somebody FOR doing something)
    Ashamed OF... etc.

    Must I remember these all?

    Simple answer - YES! I'm afraid you simply have to learn which preposition goes after which verb!
