HOW TO STUDY PREPOSITIONS

Olá, turma! 

Na aula de hoje, mencionei um exercício simples, prático e muito eficiente para quem precisa treinar o uso de preposições em inglês (e quem não precisa? rs).

Crie seus próprios exercícios a partir de textos de fontes confiáveis, como o Economist, a Foreign Affairs, o Wall Street Journal etc. 

Basta salvar duas cópias de um texto como arquivo do word e apagar as preposições em uma das cópias. Aqui vai um exemplo:

FULL TEXT                                TEXT WITHOUT PREPOSITIONS

In contrast to Gerhard Schröder, the former German chancellor who now lobbies for Mr Putin, Mrs Merkel has become a steadfast ideological opponent. She has taken a firm stand against Russian aggression in Ukraine, and the campaign of lies deployed to legitimise it. According to one of Mrs Merkel’s aides, Mr Putin’s mendacious denials that the “green men” who seized Crimea were Russian soldiers were a turning point for her. In turn, it is Mrs Merkel’s adherence to principle that makes her so alien to the Kremlin, which operates in a postmodernist world where truth and facts do not apply.

Mr Putin excels at exploiting other countries’ weaknesses. The Kremlin is now working hard to exacerbate the political damage done to Mrs Merkel by her policy of openness towards refugees.

Espere alguns dias, para esquecer  as preposições apagadas, e preencha os espaços em branco. Use a cópia do texto completo como gabarito. Pode usar essa lista  como referência , em caso de dúvida.  Em muitos casos, mais de uma preposição pode servir para preencher o espaço corretamente; procure pesquisar todas. 

Pronto! Bons estudos a todos, até semana que vem.
