Little Words: Prepositions and Phrasal Verbs

This course concentrates on little words, mainly prepositions and phrasal verbs, which lawyers use in their work.

Little words can sometimes have a major impact on the meaning of a sentence.

The rule with little words is that…… there are no rules – you have to learn which combinations are correct and what they mean. The errors in prepositions and phrasal verbs are often the last to go, the most persistent ones in the language of even the most advanced learners.

After you’ve done this course, you’ll be able to use little words correctly: something which will make you stand out as a sophisticated, polished and professional communicator.


Very good. I think one of the most common difficulties that many non-native English speakers (including me) have when writing is prepositions and the course dealt with many confusing expressions that are commonly used.

I liked the simple structure of the course, where you present questions and then show the answers and questions. And, the explanations were clear and straightforward.

I felt that the explanations were detailed enough and neatly organized. They covered pretty much every question I had.


As a non-native English speaker and a life-long English learner, it is very important to find reliable learning materials and resources, I think the course that I took, Little Words, is one of such materials. It was very useful to check what I know and what I don’t know or was not sure about
