Time prepositions


Many of us are not native English speakers. English is neither spoken in our homes nor it was taught by our mothers. In the modern world this cannot be said as an excuse. We have to strive on to learn English. We are compelled to be English Students. The whole of technical and business world... why even the world of sports too speak English and understands when English is spoken. English has become the language of the Universe. So we should keep on engaged in learning.

One of the main drawback is of a native speaker is he/ she is unable to use an appropriate prepostion. Prepositions are used in many different contexts. Now we shall see' Time prepostions.' That means the kind of prepositions we use with time.

How to use an appropriate prepositon?
