Today we’ve studied (revised for some of my students) the verbs and their prepositions.

What I want you to do is to learn this grammar. The best way to remember something is to apply a new knowledge to the work (homework in our case.)

  1. I agree ____ Frankie.
  2. He introduces me ___ his friends.
  3. While we were talking about that crime, he suddenly turned ____.
  4. Anna is worried ____ a new hairdo.
