You might have noticed from the previous posts (if you’ve heard the pronunciation) that some letters are not pronunced such as the “s” or “x” at the end of a word. These kind of letters are silent.
The prepositions in French have different meanings, like in English we say “on the first floor ” not “at the first floor ” as in French we would have said.
I don’t expect you to memorize them because it’s impossible, you’ll learn them in the future with the proper phrases such as the examples in english.
In English you’ll find the meaning, but as there is no rule, this post is just to get familiarized with the words but not their way of using them.
