Before we start presenting more prepositions of place please review Lesson 9 (Link here).

Prepositions of place show where something is in relation to another object or person. They show “position” and help us describe where something is located in a sentence.

In lesson #9 we practiced the prepositions of place and today I would like to expand the conceptwith the rollowing rules.
