Having Trouble With Prepositions

I'm having trouble with prepositions. I usually miss 3-4 questions per timed practice, and I feel like that's really really poor.

I find it hard to remember them. With German we learned them and I didn't understand them, but as I kept reading and continuing with the language I got a complete understanding of them quickly. Is that what I have to do with Dutch to?

Any tips or tricks with prepositions? Is it essential that I spend like a week just reviewing these until they're in my head before I continue in my tree? Or should I go on as usual and hope it sticks with time?

If you are having trouble with prepositions then maybe you should try it without timed practice. Then try timed practice.


Yeah that's a good idea I suppose... What else do you think I can do to get them down? Did you get them down by learning them in a short time until you were solid on them, or did you learn them over time as you progressed with the tree?


I don't know what Dutch prepositions are like. However, I still struggle with French prepositions, For some reason except for "por" and "para" I never had much trouble with Spanish prepositions. Sometimes somethings just take a ton of practice. I would suggest learning by reading. Prepositions can very idiomatic.
