  • Hi there. Welcome to Harry's World of Words and Phrases and English in a Minute.

  • We're going to look at prepositional phrases, two in particular.

  • 'Into', one word 'i-n-t-o', and 'onto', one word 'o-n-t-o', and how we can, we can, we can use them.

  • They can get confused because they look alike and they, they sound alike, but in both cases, they're prepositional phrases of action - something happens.

  • For example, 'I walked into the room.'

  • There's an action coming 'into' the room.

  • 'I climbed onto the roof' - the action of getting up 'onto' the roof.

  • 'Into.' 'Onto.'

  • We can use them 'in' and 'on', but that means something is actually already happened.

  • 'I'm sitting in the room.'

  • 'The pen is on the table.'

  • It has already h-happened - there's no further action.

  • And also remember, we can split it and say 'in to' 'i-n' space 't-o', 'on' space 't-o' in the following ways:

  • 'I drove on to the next village to get some petrol.'

  • 'I walked in to complain.'

  • 'I-n', 'o-n.'

  • Ok, that's all for today, and remember subscribe to our Channel and join us on www.englishlessonviaskype.com, and we'll catch up again soon.
