Barron’s ESL Proficiency Series: Prepositions provides comprehensive coverage of this most difficult topic in English grammar. The idiosyncratic nature of prepositions often makes them a barrier to achieving English language proficiency. Jean Yates offers clear explanations with lots of examples and opportunities to practice. Content is organized into simple 15-minute units each of which has its own practice exercises. An answer key is included in the back of the book.
The ESL Profiency Series is a valuable tool for ESL teachers, tutors and learners who want to advance their English language skills for work, school or to prepare for proficiency tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, or TOEIC. It is ideal for independent study.

About the Publisher In the 1930s, Manuel H. Barron opened a bookstore in Brooklyn, New York.
People from the community asked Mr. Barron about books that might be available to help their children study for the New York State Regents exams. After realizing there wasn't anything available, Mr. Barron created his own study guides.
Eighty years later, Barron's has helped millions of people prepare for their next step.
STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS
Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.
Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.
Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.
Certain limitations apply:
Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.
You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.
We greatly appreciate your support of the store with your book orders. Need a book without our current shopping limitations? We recommend Bookshop. View our recommendations on Bookshop, then search for whatever book you'd like.
