    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Helpful preposition pairings

    It's a useful list but it seems to have a few omissions. For example, "scared of" is there but "scared to" isn't. "Proud of" is there but "Proud to" isn't. Context would make a huge difference to each one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I was struggling on my phone to post the link to the Facebook site - it kept reverting to the app and I couldn't get the link. Thanks for that.
