For many students of English, preposition is an easy material to learn. So easy is it, that they think they don’t need any explanation from the teacher. What they need to do is just to open the dictionary, look up the meanings, and memorize them. This view is true for many, but not all, students. Some students, no matter how little their number is, still need teacher’s explanation and instruction. Some students even F95ZONE depend on teacher’s explanation very greatly. Without teacher’s instruction, or perhaps, demonstration, they just can’t understand thoroughly about the material.
Related to that fact, we, teachers of English should view the material and the students in clear perspective. Eliminating the material from our English teaching and learning plan will be unfair for the later group, those who need teachers’ instruction.
