Avançado - 1. Prepositions After Verbs

(This is part 2 of 2 lessons (and not of 3 as mentioned on our last class) on the same subject.
Other common preposition problems:
• Days/Dates:
on Monday, Tuesday / on January 15, 1997 / in January 1997 / in January / in 1997 / on the 15 th of January / on New Year's Eve

• Times:
in the morning, afternoon, evening / at night / at noon / at midnight / at 6:00 / in a minute, hour, week / at this time / at the moment (right now) / in the summer, winter

• Locations
(be) at the store (I was at the store) / in the store (I was in the store: emphasizing inside the store) / (be) at school / (be) at church / (be) at home / (go) to the store, zoo, house / (go) to school, church, home.

Choosing the correct preposition (in, about, for, to...) after a verb is simply a matter of memorizing (and practicing) which prepositions accompany a specific verb. Fill in the appropriate preposition in each blank space. There may be more than one possibility.
