VERB + PREPOSITION (SPEND)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Before starting, I wanted to let you know that I will be doing a free webinar (an online class) about how to improve your English pronunciation. The webinar is Today, October 17th at 14:15. You can register for the class at the following link:

https://zoom.us/meeting/register/a451d63b2bb06e0fdc2040ba88984b7b

As you probably know, this week we are learning Verb + Preposition Combinations. Today's combination is SPEND ON

Definition: To put time or money or effort into something. 

Example 1: I spend a lot of money on travel, but it's worth it. 

Example 2: What did you spend your birthday money on?

Example 3: I spent my bonus paycheque on a new sofa. 

Example 4: I spent a lot of time on this project. 

That's it for today. I hope you don't spend too much time on unnecessary projects today!

VERB + PREPOSITION (SUPPLY)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome to Monday's Daily Vitamin, everyone! Are you excited to hear what this week's theme is?

Students so often say that they have issues with prepositions. This week, we are focusing on Verb + Preposition Combinations. We will begin with the verb SUPPLY and the combination SUPPLY WITH

Example 1: They supplied us with food and water. 

Example 2: We will supply you with everything you need. 

Example 3: Everyone will be supplied with pens and pencils. 

Notice that we have the construction SUPPLY + OBJECT + WITH in the first two examples. For the third example, we do not have this construction because it is passive.

To learn more about the Passive Voice, read some of our previous lessons. 

The Future with Passive Voice
Present Perfect with Passive Voice
Active vs. Passive Present Continuous
Active vs. Passive Simple Past
Active vs. Passive Present Perfect Continuous

That's all for today. Have a wonderful Monday!
