Verbs with Prepositions (Part 2)


I. Theory

To review, there are many verbs in German that take specific prepositions. These prepositions show how the action is being done to the verb and thus are usually found in between the verb and its object. An English example of this would be “to talk to” versus “to talk about.” Here, we see how important it is that the correct preposition is used. More information can be found in the lesson “Verbs with Prepositions (Part 1)”.
