    Thank you.
    You don't need to know idioms to speak good English. Phrasal verbs can be important as we use them a lot.

    Prepositions are complicated but with practice, you'll understand them. It's impossible to just "explain" prepositions. You need to learn the meaning of each one and when it is appropriate to use it.

    Please see my amendments to your post in red above. Please don't use so many smilies/emoticons. They make posts difficult for us to read. Thank you.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) As the teacher said, we learners do not have to know idioms in order to speak English well, but I respectfully urge you to learn as many idioms as it is possible to do. Then you will understand English better when you hear or read it.

    (2) As the teacher said, prepositions are super important. Some books say that prepositions are the "glue" of English. They connect all the parts.

    (a) Here is a little story that I have made up. Can you fill the blanks with the correct preposition?

    I come ____ usingenglish.com because it is the best helpline ____ the World Wide

    Web. The teachers are all native speakers ___ English. I usually visit this website

    ___ the morning, but occasionally I even visit it ____ night. The teachers are very

    intelligent and kind, and they are very patient -- no matter what kind ___ question

    we ask. It is impossible to speak English correctly ____an understanding of

    prepositions.

    My answers: to; on; of; in; at; of; without.
