Some adjectives go with certain prepositions. There is no real pattern – you need to learn them as you meet them.

Iam very weak in grammer especially in sentence making so where should I start,which lesson should I take first?

Hello Albi 87,

I'd recommend you look at the Clause, phrase and sentence section of our English Grammar. If that is useful, then I'd encourage you to continue with it and the rest of the English Grammar section. I'd also suggest you read in English, analysing the sentences that you read and using them as models in your writing and speaking. Our Magazine is full of articles on a range of topics and would be a good place to start. Finally, Elementary Podcasts is also a great resource to see a variety of sentences, and each episode has a Transcript that you can read as you listen.

All the best,

Hello PsychoGirl,

Welcome! There is some advice on how to use our site to improve your English on our Frequently asked questions page. As it mentions, many people find Elementary Podcasts a good place to start -- just start with the first episode. Why don't you have a go, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Good luck!

Hello,
i do have a doubt in the statement "i'm very bad at expressing myself"
i always used the preposition "i" instead of "at" in this statement.....why can't we use "i"?
please help me...........

Hello Joel Joseph,

Both 'good' and 'bad' are often followed by the preposition 'at', and the sentence you ask about is correct. 'i' is not a preposition, so that would not be correct here in any case.

Thank you for u reply....i am really sorry because, i didn't noticed i put the subject 'i' instead of the preposition 'in' in my question..Kindly,could you tell me why 'in' cannot be used in the above mentioned statement?

Hello Joel Joseph,

'in' is not correct in a phrase like the one you ask about -- 'at' is the correct preposition. This is just the way that English speakers write and speak.

All the best,
