Prepositions in English (i.e. small words like at, in, on etc. that are placed before nouns) can be challenging even for advanced English language learners. In fact, one of the most common mistakes in the IELTS Writing and IELTS Speaking test is using the prepositions incorrectly. Of course, you could lose marks if such mistakes are consistent.
