[Part 1]

Hi, everybody.

In this video, we’re going to talk about the prepostions: in, on and under.

Now, we use prepostions to show ‘where’ something is.

So, let’s take a look at the board.

Ok, now in this picture, we have a cat.

Ok, and we’re talking about this specific cat, so we have to say “the cat”.

Ok…

“…is in the box.”

Ok…

The preposition is ‘in’.

“He’s ‘in’ the box.”

“…’in’ the box.”

Ok…

And the next one.

“The cat is on…”

The preposition ‘on’…”the chair”.

“He’s on the chair.”

Ok…

And the next one.

“The cat is ‘under’…..’under’ the table.”

“…’under’ the table.”

Ok…

Let’s look at the next one.

Now we have plural nouns.

“The apples ‘are’…”

Ok…

“…in the box.”

Again, the apples are “…’in’ the box.”

Ok…

Next, “The apples are ‘on’ the chair.”

And last.

“The apples are ‘under’….’under’ the table.”

Ok, let’s look at some more examples.

1:30 [Part 2]

Ok, let’s look at some pictures to help us understand the prepositions: in, on, and under.

I’m going to ask you some questions.

I want you to think about which one you should use.

Ok…

“Where is the dog?”

“Where is the dog?”

“The dog is ‘in’ the doghouse.

You should use the preposition ‘in’.

“The dog is ‘in’ the doghouse.

“Where is the man?”

“Where is the man?”

“The man is ‘under’ the umbrealla.”

“The man is ‘under’ the umbrealla.”

And last.

“Where are the girls?”

“Where are the girls?”

“The girls are ‘on’ the bridge.”

“The girls are ‘on’ the bridge.”

Ok…

Let’s look at some more examples.

2:46 [Part 3]

Ok…

Now, we’re going to practice asking and answering questions using: in, on and under.

First, let’s take a look at this picture.

Here we have a rabbit, a chair and one, two, three snakes.

Ok…

So, I will ask a question using in, on or under.

I want you to think.

Is the answer, “Yes, it is.” or “No, it isn’t.”

Ok…

Let’s start with the rabbit.

“Is the rabbit under the chair?”

“No, it isn’t.”

“Is the rabbit in the chair?”

“No, it isn’t.”

“Is the rabbit on the chair?”

“…on the chair?”

“Yes, it is.”

Ok…

Now, we’re going to move on to the snakes.

Now, there are…there are more than one, right, so it’s plural, so we say, “Are the snakes…” with an ‘s’.

Ok…

So again, think.

Is the answer, “Yes, they are.” or “No, they aren’t.”

“Are the snakes in the chair?”

“No, they aren’t.”

“Are the snakes on the chair?”

“No, they aren’t.”

“Are the snakes under the chair?”

“Yes, they are.”

Ok, how did you do?

I hope you guys understand how to use the prepositions; in, on and under after watching this video.

Thanks for joining and I’ll see you next time.

Bye.
