Prepositions in English- are those little words that students love to hate but are quite important as they're used in many different ways.

Let's get straight to the nitty gritty and assimilate these through diagrams.




Let's look at some exceptions

The sea- on - when something is floating.



So now let's put it into practice and test yourself:



Fill in the gaps: (don't peep at the answers until you've finished)


1.Can you check ...............your laptop to see if there are and survey forms.........the HR folder?


2.There are 20 of us working ................my team ..............the R&D department.


3.Would you bee able to hand out the agenda ..............the meting while I introduce the topic?


4.I've just left the report ............your desk, please check it and then put it back .............the drawer.


5.We save all of our data .............the cloud so that we have a safe and secure backup of our information.





Now that you’ve learned the difference between IN vs ON the only thing left is to incorporate it into your daily business English use today.
