Dependent prepositions (pre-intermediate and higher levels)

Dependent prepositions (pre-intermediate and higher levels)


Hi, everyone welcome to Yappi Corporate webinar. My name is Anna. And today we’re going to talk about dependent prepositions as you see here on the whiteboard. Please subscribe to the channel and leave any comments and thoughts that come into your minds during the webinar or after it. And I’ll be ready to answer any comments of what you think about our webinar and about all the tasks and correct you. So let’s move back to our topic that is dependent prepositions. So first of all what it means. We have some words and after these worst we have prepositions that follow them. For example we have prepositions that we’re going to talk about From, for, on, about, with, to, of/in and we’re going to talk about one word that can be followed by two prepositions either off or in. And that will have different meanings. And by the way there are many words in English language that can be involved by many prepositions. Not on one preposition and the meaning of this word can be different. So I will stick the words to the whiteboard and your task is too match these prepositions to the words that you see on the whiteboard. For example, the first word is Associate and your task is to match preposition to this board. For example associate and you match it to one of the words like here and as the second part of our webinar. we’re going to check everything with the help of our presentation So the first word is associate and you have some seconds to write preposition. So straight and a preposition. Then we have the word consist And you will need to get one word that can be followed by two prepositions of or in The other word is to complain Here we have Complain. This is rather not a very good word to use in everyday is to complain. Preposition. Everything is not very like it. Then we have contribution. Like Contribution is like to contribute to Add something like to contribute then we have resistance We have to be resistant it means like to be resistant to help enough power to for example Have your point of view and not to stick to the other point of view, like to resist. this situation. So then we have relationship to have relations. And we have relationships and so choose one of the prepositions. The other word we have like search. Search I’m in search. to search. to look for something to be in search. Then we have the word that is suffer. Suffer is for example when you have something like a negative like to have pain, to have not only like physical. To suffer. Like that we have the word lead. So the conclusion it comes to it. The word lead. We have the other word. We have hope and The last word we have realy. So let’s sum up what we have here in our whiteboard. So today we talked about dependent prepositions and We have some prepositions here They are from, for, on, about, to, with, to and one word out of this that can be followed by two propositions of or in. And the meaning is different. So we have the words here that you had to match with the prepositions. They are relly, associate, Complain, search, lead, hope, suffer relationship, resistance, contribution consist. And now let’s move to our presentation to check everything what we have done here. I hope that you’ve done it. All right. So here is our presentation and on our slide I used one picture that will help you to match these prepositions to one of the words. So what can this picture mean. And we have suffer from. And you see on this picture that this person has some kind of a pain or something bothers him. And this person suffers from something. On the other slide we have the other picture so you have to think about if it is associated with something. And we have preposition for and we have the same words and you are to match the words to this preposition and Here we have Search for – so when you’re looking for something you are in search. So you’re searching for something for new information are searching for new friends, for new relationships. And you hope for the best. That everything’s going to be fine. So everything is going to be cool. So we have searched for and Hope for. On the other slide you see the other picture and it’s up to you to decide and to imagine in your head what kind of things which kind of word we can match to the preposition on So here we have the last word. So they are the same. And it’s like memory training also to remember which words have already been out or this kind of the game. So here we have on and We have rely on. So you can rely on. You can also say you can count on me, too. I’m your best friend. So you can rely on me in the situations. So you can count on me. And here you see the other picture and a preposition to and we have the same words and You are to match. So the task is the same and we match the word Resistance to. So we resist to something. It’s like to have enough will. To have enough power to be yourself to resist to other opinions. I’d like to agree with your own one and I’d ike to be resistance to such kind of things. And we have the other word that is lead to so this can lead to Something if you behave yourself in very bad Very Badly, so it can lead to not very good consequences and. We also have Contribution and this picture is associated with a contribution so you can contribute to our society by making something or by throwing rubbish into the bin. And the other picture and the preposition with and we have the words and you are to guess so that The picture will help you to associate one of the words with this preposition. And it is relationship. So to have relationship like with relations with and we have associate also with as I’ve just told you so associate with. And here we have the preposition about. We have the words and we have the picture that can help you to think about the word and the preposition. And it is complain so if you don’t like something, you can complain about it. To make a complaint to the manager and Complain about something. And here we have one of the words that you need to guess that can have different prepositions like of and in so can be followed by different propositions of and in and consists of is consist of means to be made up of. Our team consists of two people and Consists in means based on So her job was based on Doing nothing, yeah. So like consists in doing nothing. And this way, so this is the difference. To consist of we have to be made up of like Our team is made up of two people. And consists in means it is based on. Like to be based on So So today we have talked about dependent prepositions and let’s sum up what we have here and what we’ve talked about So here we have dependent prepositions, and we’ve talked about some of them. And they are for, on, about, with, and to. And we have one word that is consist. That can be followed by two prepositions and can have different meanings like consist of and Consists in. And we have other words that you were to match With the prepositions. So they are rely, associate, complain, search, lead, hope, suffer relationship, resistance, contribution I hope, you remembered which words should be followed by these and those prepositions And I hope you won’t make any mistakes in using them. And your task is to write down some of the words that can be followed by these prepositions by from, for, on, about, with, to, or a a word like insist that can be followed by more than one prepositions. And their meaning. So consist of the meaning and consists in the meaning. So I hope you like to have a webinar and So please subscribe to our channel and write down all the comments and thoughts that come to your minds I will be glad to answer all of them. And I hope to see in one of the Fridays. I wish you all the best. Have a good luck and good weekends. Bye!

    If you are using terms like pre-inter etc, I assume this video is for ESL students. Why wouldn't you slow down and open your mouth when you speak? I can't imagine anybody who is below C1 to follow you. Terrible articulation for a teacher.
