no prepositions


no prepositions
We do not use 'at'/'on'/'in' before 'last' and 'next':

- I'll see you next Friday.

- They got married last March.

We say arrive home/go home/come home/get home etc. (with no preposition):

- When did he arrive home?

- I'm tired. Let's go home.

We do not use a preposition with these verbs:

phone someone/discuss something/enter somewhere (= go into a place):

- Did you phone your father yesterday?

- We discussed many things at the meeting.

We say 'ask (someone) a question' (no preposition)
