Video Script:

Hello and welcome to today this video dedicated to Adjectives + preposition.

These collocations enable us to describe people, objects, attitudes, feelings… enabling us to create more complex sentences.

Some adjectives + prepositions do not appear on this list today.

For example, INTERESTED IN, BASED ON, KEEN ON, FREE FROM etc.

Therefore, this is just one of many lists available.

You also have a PDF on our website (“www.YourEnglishHub.com”) which includes a few more examples.

Let’s take a look!

I’m going to run through some of the list with you for pronunciation.

All that I’ve done today is pronounce for you. Let’s see some important things you should take into account.

You will see that some adjectives appear with a preposition or another.

Usually they mean the same thing. They can be used interchangeably without any difference.

However, in some cases there is a slight difference in meaning.

Annoyed ABOUT SOMETHING – ANNOYED SOMEONE AT
