  • What's going on guys? So I hear learners like  you all the time say that phrasal verbs are the  

  • most difficult part of learning English. And while  this is true to some extent, at least with phrasal  

  • verbs you can replace them with regular one-word  verbs. For example, how you can use "examine"  

  • instead of "look over." Or, you can use "tolerateinstead of "put up with." Now, prepositions you  

  • either get them right, or you get them wrongAnd even the most advanced English speakers that  

  • I know tend to still have some trouble and make  mistakes getting preposition combinations right.  

  • Now, this won't be just another lesson about  prepositions of place like "should I arrive AT" or  

  • "should I arrive ON," or prepositions of time like  "my birthday is IN January" or "ON January." While  

  • that is definitely a topic that's always been  very difficult for English learners to master,  

  • there's a ton of really great lessons out  there including one that we actually made,  

  • which you can check out after this lesson. Butbefore we get into today's main topic, I wanted to  

  • let you know that if you're new here, every week  we help you to master English vocabulary, grammar,  

  • pronunciation, and so much more so that you can  understand fast-speaking natives without getting  

  • lost, without missing the jokes, and without  subtitles. Like Ghanshyam, who says that thanks to  

  • our lessons, they can now understand fast-speaking  natives, and you can too, it's really simple —  

  • just hit that Subscribe button and the bell down  below so you don't miss any of our new lessons.  

  • Alright, so to start out we'll have you take  a quick diagnostic test just to see if this  

  • is a problem that you might suffer from. So  we'll watch a funny clip from Friends, and  

  • what I want you to do is think about what should  come after "interested" — is it IN, ON or ABOUT.

  • That should be easy. Let's  do a more difficult one now.

  • Let's take one more quiz. Are  you "committed TO someone",  

  • are you "committed IN someone", or do you  not even need a preposition with "committed"?

  • So, in this lesson, firstly we'll take a look  at words that have more than one preposition,  

  • such as "think about" and "think  of," and how the meaning changes.  

  • Then, after that, we'll look at words, both  verbs and adjectives, that learners often get  

  • the preposition combination wrong with. And then  finally we'll give you some tips on how you can  

  • avoid making mistakes with prepositions altogether  [completely]. Are you ready? Let's jump into it.

  • By the way, learning English grammar can be  frustrating and boring. But, one of the best ways  

  • to learn grammar naturally is through TV seriesAnd the best TV series to learn English with,  

  • as shown by several academic studies, is FriendsAnd that's exactly why we created our Fluent with  

  • Friends course. Now, in this 48-week course, you  will learn alongside the first two seasons of the  

  • TV series Friends, drastically improving your  English fluency and comprehension, and you'll  

  • have a ton of fun doing it. And the best partis you can try it for FREE right now with our  

  • 3-part Masterclass. Just click up here or down in  the description below to learn more and sign up.

  • And now I want you to tell me which  preposition follows each of these verbs.  

  • We'll see each of them used in context.

  • Alright, so now in the comments below, let  me know which other advanced techniques  

  • you find most difficult. Maybe we will  make a lesson for you on it. And now,  

  • it's time to go beyond the classroomand LIVE your English! Aww Yeah!
