Prepositional Verbs March 21, 2009

Just a little note on prepositional verbs. I’ve noticed lately a lot of Spaniards saying “Listen me” when what you mean is: “Listen TO me”.

There are plenty of others like this, for example;

  • want to
  • have to
  • like to

You should keep a note of these in your vocab journal as you find them.
