· 文法跟讀單元 In-Tense

Welcome to 15 minutes.Today, the home of English shadowing. I'm your host Gavin, and this is InTense Episode 31.

Well guys, in this episode we're going to be looking at more prepositions. Now, this one is a bit interesting because I tried to find some examples and unlike prepositions of time, I didn't really find any examples on Google. So, this is something that I'm calling prepositions of media, as in media, TV Internet, email, etc etc. So, what does this mean? Well, when we talk about where we read something or something we have either in or on. Sometimes students struggle with that. So, we read something in a book, so anything that opens up, closes like a book, magazine, newspaper, or an email, you will have to open it. I would suggest in but the big one is on - we saw it on the Internet on TV, on Facebook, the show was on a stage. Yes, it was on a CD on the radio and of course now with Internet it's on YouTube, but of course we use in connected with that sometimes. So, it's on the Internet, in an article or on YouTube in a video that's where you see it. So, let's see if we sort of go back in time, you saw stuff, I saw it in person, and then you know we got the printed word, and then I read it in a letter, I read it in a book , then came the radio. And I heard it on the radio, then came TV, and I saw it on TV or then, well, we could do movies and that's in - I saw it in a movie, at the movie theater. Then the last big one, the newest, the Internet - I read it on the Internet, I saw it on Facebook, I saw it on YouTube, I read it on Facebook, in a message, on the Internet. And I opened up my email, I read what he said in my email.

OK, so I hope that's useful to you so let's get started with the questions.
