is a list I made some time ago, of verbs that are introduced in the Duolingo course.

http://www.audiofrench.com/ is one of my favorite resources, as it also includes audio.

https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8514570 is some information on prepositions 1 in our course here.
https://www.duolingo.com/skill/fr/Prepositions-1 : to check out the Tips and Notes.

Also, when you check out my posts on prepositions, also run your eye over related discussions, which you will see on the right hand side of the page, which will also take you to other resources.
Also, you can search discussion - by using the search tab at the top of the discussion page.

https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8432474 is for prepositions 2.

here is a list of the words introduced.

Lesson 1 of 4

Lesson 2 of 4

Lesson 3 of 4

Lesson 4 of 4

Thanks. And a Happy New Year to you, lindakanga!

There is so much info here. If I wanted ONE good site to look at to start off with that gives the most common verbs that require a preposition and how they are used in French (preferably with example sentences), which would you recommend?

That is where I would like to start.

ohhh wow. mmmmmmm.

There are two that I often use, and they use the same data base.

https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-french

and
http://www.reverso.net/text_translation.aspx?lang=EN

Reverso is particularly impressive, with how it ties everything together.

Except you are asking specifically about prepositions.

I might have to think about this a bit more and come back with better recommendations.
Thank you for your patience.

Give me time to get back home and start my computer. I am on my mobile and just watched the day dawn for 2018 over the 90 mile beach on the other side of the pacific ocean pond. I have lots to suggest.
