6.1. Cracking Prepositions

Listen to an audio I recorded to introduce the topic of Prepositions:


get TO = arrive AT

to be ON the other side of the road

Watch the video below to understand why:

For TIME and LOCATION, we use:

IN in more general situations
ON more specific
AT very specific

think ABOUT versus think OF

💬 "Think about" is used when you're actively considering something or concentrating on the thought of it.

Ex. Let me think ABOUT it.

💬 On the other hand, "think of" is used when the idea comes to you.

Ex. I never thought OF that.

In most other cases, they are very similar and can be used interchangeably. Especially for actions in the future.

Ex. I'm thinking ABOUT/ OF going on a trip
