Ready to learn prepositions with adjectives? Let’s understand what is a preposition first. Prepositions as a class of words, are used to show how things are related in space or in time, they may express abstract relation and serve to connect the words in a sentence. There are many “small words” in English such as up, down, by, away, etc. They can be used as prepositions or adverbs. A preposition must have an object (a noun or a pronoun).

Some prepositions in English come after adjectives, creating a new structure. We call them prepositions with adjectives. Afraid of, aware of, addicted to etc… Some English adjectives requires a preposition and unfortunately there is no logical explanation or rule for their usage. We just need to memorize them.

Adjective + prepositionbad (adjective) + at (preposition). Example: I am bad at swimming. We can’t say “I am bad with swimming”.
