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.)
I wish you good luck, and attention while doing the exercises.
Insert the needed preposition to the blanks:
- I agree ____ Frankie.
- He introduces me ___ his friends.
- While we were talking about that crime, he suddenly turned ____.
- Anna is worried ____ a new hairdo.
- Chicken concentrate ___ insects when they cannot find grain.

- The new software is working ___ quite well.
- You should turn ____ this job offer.
