  • Hi, everybody.

  • In this video, we're going to talk about the prepositions: in, on and under.

  • Now, we use prepositions to show 'where' something is.

  • So, let's take a look at the board.

  • Okay, now in this picture, we have a cat.

  • Okay, and we're talking about this specific cat, so we have to say, “the cat”.

  • Okay. “…is in the box.”

  • Okay.

  • The preposition is 'in'.

  • He's 'in' the box.” “…'in' the box.”

  • Okay.

  • And the next one.

  • The cat is on…”

  • The preposition 'on'… “the chair”.

  • He's on the chair.”

  • Okay.

  • And the next one.

  • The cat is 'under'…

  • 'under' the table.”

  • “…'under' the table.”

  • Okay.

  • Let's look at the next one.

  • Now we have plural nouns.

  • The apples 'are'…”

  • Okay. “…in the box.”

  • Again, the apples are “…'in' the box.”

  • Okay.

  • Next, “The apples are 'on' the chair.”

  • And last.

  • The apples are 'under'….'under' the table.”

  • Okay, let's look at some more examples.

  • Okay, let's look at some pictures to help us understand the prepositions:

  • in, on, and under.

  • I'm going to ask you some questions.

  • I want you to think about which one you should use.

  • Okay.

  • Where is the dog?”

  • Where is the dog?”

  • The dog is 'in' the doghouse.

  • You should use the preposition 'in'.

  • The dog is 'in' the doghouse.

  • Where is the man?”

  • Where is the man?”

  • The man is 'under' the umbrella.”

  • The man is 'under' the umbrella.”

  • And last.

  • Where are the girls?”

  • Where are the girls?”

  • The girls are 'on' the bridge.”

  • The girls are 'on' the bridge.”

  • Okay.

  • Let's look at some more examples.

  • Now, we're going to practice asking and answering questions using: in, on and under.

  • First, let's take a look at this picture.

  • Here we have a rabbit, a chair and one, two, three snakes.

  • Okay.

  • So, I will ask a question using in, on or under.

  • I want you to think.

  • Is the answer, “Yes, it is.”

  • orNo, it isn't.”

  • Okay.

  • Let's start with the rabbit.

  • Is the rabbit under the chair?”

  • No, it isn't.”

  • Is the rabbit in the chair?”

  • No, it isn't.”

  • Is the rabbit on the chair?” “…on the chair?”

  • Yes, it is.”

  • Okay.

  • Now, we're going to move on to the snakes.

  • Now, there arethere are more than one, right, so it's plural, so we say,

  • Are the snakes…” with an 's'.

  • Okay.

  • So again, think.

  • Is the answer, “Yes, they are.”

  • orNo, they aren't.”

  • Are the snakes in the chair?”

  • No, they aren't.”

  • Are the snakes on the chair?”

  • No, they aren't.”

  • Are the snakes under the chair?”

  • Yes, they are.”

  • Okay, how did you do?

  • I hope you guys understand how to use the prepositions; in, on and under after watching this video.
