HOW TO FORM QUESTIONS WITH PREPOSITIONS!

TRACK 10: ENGLISHMAN & SCOTSWOMAN

INFORMATION BOX

In very formal English, you might see the preposition at the start of the sentence. For example:

Standard English: Who did you send the letter to?

Formal English: To whom did you send the letter?

There are lots of useful expressions with verbs + prepositions. For example: listen to, wait for, look at, etc. But how do you form questions with them? Simple! Just put the preposition at the end.

“Who is the e-mail for?”
