Know the Verb/Preposition Colocations

As you probably know by now, there are some verb and preposition combinations that are (almost) always true.   For example, we (almost) always combine ‘depend’ with ‘on’, ‘responsible’ with ‘for’, ‘agree’ with ‘with’ etc.

Keep practicing and they will become second-nature(automático) in time.

And let me know if you have any questions about the exercise (Preposition Exercises 5).

Check out the other earlier exercises to help you learn prepositions under the FREE STUFF/Preposition Practice menu.
