Prepositions in Spanish

Prepositions are small words with a big impact in every language. These words form the connections and relations between different objects in a sentence. Spanish prepositions do not take on masculine and feminine or singular and plural. They will always have the same form. Prepositions can be single (formed by only one word) or complex (formed by more than one word).

Since sometimes they can cause a few problems, let’s take a look at some of the most used prepositions.

Most Common Prepositions in Spanish

Spanish English Example
A To, at (for time) Voy a la iglesia.
Con With Ella está con su abuela.
Entre Between, among Hay un traidor entre nosotros.
Para For, in order to Esta caja es para ti.
Por For, by, through Tenemos que pasar por el parque para llegar a la escuela.
Sin Without No puedo vivir sin ti.
En In, on, at Estoy en la casa de un amigo.
hacia Towards Ve hacia el norte.
sobre About, on El libro está sobre la mesa
De Of, by, from, made of ¿Qué piensas de la pélicula?

Undoubtedly, these are frequently used and extremely useful words that can be confusing sometimes. But, don’t worry! The more you practice them, the easier they become. And again, the golden rule here is Patience!
