MichaelAD Grammar Leave a Comment


Hey guys it’s Michael here from Happy English! It’s finally summer in New York City. We’ve actually had more than a week of real summer weather here. Of course it’s not as hot as it is over in Europe. It seems like a lot of places there are having temperatures way over 40°C. That’s really unbelievable. I hope you guys there can keep cool.

Here’s a cool idea. Let’s take a look at some prepositions and phrases that we use to talk about traveling. I know that propositions are really a pain in the neck for a lot of English learners, but hopefully, after checking out this podcast, things will be a lot more clearer for you. Alright…let’s check it out!

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details.

  • Fred was going to come to my house by bike, but since he got a flat tire, he is coming on foot.
  • I went to the park on foot.
  • New York you can go to Boston by car, by train, or by plane.
  • It was a nice day so I walked to the park.
  • I usually drive to the train station in the morning.
  • I’m going to fly to Chicago tomorrow.
  • Before traveling, we get on the bus, get on the train, and get on the plane.
  • After traveling, we get off the bus, get off the train, and get off the plane.
  • You also get on or get off your bicycle, get on or get off your bike, and get on or get off your motorcycle.
