    how to master using prepositions

    Hi, I am an English learner, and I found that I could get confused easily with prepositions when reading some newspaper. How did you native speakers overcome those difficulties???Is there any online resources??

    Re: how to master using prepositions

    Native speakers don't ned to overcome the difficulties of preposition use. We just automatically learn them as we grow up learning our own language. We simply absorb the correct usage because it's used around us all the time.

    Preposition and article usage are two of the hardest things to master for learners. The simple answer is memorise and practise them!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I agree- there is no simple solution to the problem of prepositions in English. It takes time and patience.
