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

How i can study english for b2 level and make the can?

Hello Massimiliano Lazzari,

I'm not sure what you mean by 'make the can' but to find materials at a particular level you can use this page. At the top is a level test and further down there is a table of materials with level marked.

Please also visit our Getting Started section, which is aimed at new users, and our Frequently Asked Questions page, which has tips and suggestions for improving specific aspects of English (grammar, speaking, vocabulary etc).

Hi

It was very nice to meet you all. My problem is mainly on 'Conveying' .
Example - If i wanted to say something, while delivering it comes in a different meaning.
But surprisingly i got 75 % in out testing skills.

I would like to learn general english.

Please suggest me on this.

Hello KKam,

Welcome! If you haven't already, I'd suggest you read our Frequently asked questions page, where you will find advice on how to get the most out of our site. Our Facebook page also has lots of useful tips.

I'd also recommend you try Elementary Podcasts, which is great for improving your listening, vocabulary and grammar and is made exactly for learners like you, who want to improve their general English. Many people just listen to the podcast once and do the exercises and then move on to the next episode. You're welcome to do that, but I'd encourage you to apply some of the advice from our Frequently asked questions page to your work on Elementary Podcasts: if you spend a bit more time on each episode, listening more than once, imitating pronunciation and writing new words and phrases into a vocabulary notebook, you will learn a lot more. And I think it should help with the problem you describe of people understanding you differently than you intended.

I hope this helps you - please let us know if you have any other questions.

All the best,

What is the difference between 'in the street' and 'on the street'?

Hello naghmairam,

I don't think there is a hard-and-fast rule for this. Both have very similar meanings and I think it is rather a question of collocation and common use rather than rules. Do you have a particular example in mind? We'll be happy to comment on which preposition is most likely in a given example.

Hi,
I am confused about the following sentences:
I met my her in the street.
People were shouting in the street.

Thanks

Hi naghmairam,

In both of those examples you could use 'on' as well as 'in' and there would be no difference in meaning - both are correct.
