V. Prepositions.

Remember, remember… Prepositions are used in many different ways in English - perhaps that's
why a lot of people have problems with them.

First, they are used with time words:


 on Monday
 in the 20th century
 at night

Second, they are used to show where something or someone is:


 The plate is on the table.
 Julie is in the garden.
 The picture is on the wall.

Third, they are used after some adjectives:


 She is good at tennis.
 Scotland is famous for whisky
 I'm worried about my new job.

Fourth, they are used after some verbs:


 I'm listening to music.
 She is waiting for her friend.
 He borrows money from his sister.

Fifth, they are used after some nouns:


She has trouble with remembering new vocabulary.

Hi Annie

How are you and how are the kids? Did you have a good holiday? It seems like ages since we saw
each other and it might be quite a bit longer if things don’t get back to normal soon!

I was expecting to be back in the UK by now, but unfortunately due to the chaos caused by that
volcanic eruption in Iceland, I’m still in Prague. I can’t remember if I told you, but I organised a trip
here as a surprise birthday present for one of my friends – not quite the surprise I’d intended though!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I turned on the television and saw the first pictures of the eruption.
Natural disasters like those really remind you just how small we humans are and just how powerful
the forces of nature are, don’t they?

Whenever anything like that happens, your first thought is for the people and the animals of course,
but who could have predicted the international chaos that would follow? We had breakfast as normal
and discussed what time Ben should leave for the airport to catch his flight home. We’d left the
television on and that’s when we realised that no one would be going anywhere. It was impossible to
call the airport so we went on to the airline’s website where we read that all flights in central and
northern Europe had been cancelled.

And that was three days ago. Ben had to be back in the UK for an important meeting so we had to
find a way for him to leave. All the trains and ferries were booked up, but luckily there were a few
coach tickets available so off he went and I decided to stay here and hope for the best.

It is amazing to think that something happening on a tiny island near the North Pole can affect the
entire world. We really do live in a global village where everything is inter-connected and as the
chaos continues, you realise how much we all depend on one another. You would never think, for
example, that people growing roses in Kenya are losing money because the planes that would
normally fly their roses to the UK can’t leave. It’s incredible, isn’t it?

Anyway, as I’m here and have stopped stressing, I’ve decided to go hiking in the hills for a few days.
Luckily I brought most of my walking stuff with me so I’ve got my boots and fleece and I’m sure I
can borrow a rucksack from someone. The countryside around here is lovely and the walking trails
are very good so I might as well make the most of it and hope that things return to normal soon.

Give my love to the children and hopefully see you next week.
Love. Julia x
