I don't predict that which preposition is ok? with, to, on, in, at. I know only some time and place prepositions. How do I fix it? My exam is on 8th of october. Thanks for everything.

Please help me!
Thanks a lot!

kezbankamil,

Prepositions are difficult for everyone, and it's impossible for me to explain all of the 'rules' here. Here's a lesson about this:

...

Emma,

You might be testing yourself too much, and not doing enough 'training'. Read this lesson to see what I mean:

Jessica,

"in turn" is used when we are listing things that happened, when there is a sense of those things being related e.g. My grandfather owned this watch, and he gave it to my father, who in turn gave it to me.

Dear Mr. Simon and other friends,
Thanks for your suggestions!
I took the ielts test for the first time yesterday.
I didn't do it well!
I read that Mr. Simon suggested we could review the reading part of ielts test question books which had already done. What about listening part?
Please give me some advice, thanks!
Besides, I want to recommend Simon's ebook.
The ideas are REALLY useful not only in writing test, but also in speaking test! Every one should buy one! XD
Thank you, Mr. Simon!
Emma
