Hello Everyone,

Hi zahidur,

Welcome to LearnEnglish!

Your question is a very broad one! Is there any particular kind of writing you would like to work on - formal or informal writing, business or personal writing, correspondence, creative writing etc? We may be able to point you towards some relevant pages if you can be a little more specific.

For general advice on writing (and on other aspects of English) you can take a look at this page. We have various practical tips and suggestions there for you which I think will be useful.

Hello, my name is Alikhan and i would like to improve my writing skills. My problem is that sometimes i don't know what preposition to use when writing. It realy confuses me. I have tried to memorize certain words with prepositions and where to use them, but in practice it gets difficult for me. I hope you can help me with that.

Hello Goodatenglish,

I'm not sure how I can help you, I'm afraid! It really is a case of familiarisation and memorisation, with plenty of practice to help. I can direct you to some useful pages:

verbs & prepositions

adjectives & prepositions

verb patterns (use the links on the page)

verbs followed by to + infinitive

verbs followed by -ing clauses

verbs followed by that clauses


I hope those links are helpful.


Best wishes,
