Verbs + Prepositions

Some verbs need a preposition before an object or another verb. The preposition is only grammatical, so it doesn’t change the meaning of the verb.

Here are some of the most common ones:

  • arrive at / in somewhere 
    We arrived at the airport. 
    We arrived in London.
  • belong to somebody 
    This book belongs to me.
  • borrow something from somebody 
    I borrowed a book from my classmate.
  • concentrate on something / doing something 
    I concentrated on studying at the weekend.
  • depend on something / somebody 
    It depends on the weather.
  • explain something to somebody 
    The teacher explained the exercise to the students.
  • listen to something / somebody 
    I listened to music.
  • pay somebody for something 
    I paid the waiter for the coffee.
  • wait for somebody / something 
    Wait for me!
