‘Opposite‘ and ‘in front of‘. Do these words sometimes make you confused?
It’s useful to be able to distinguish ‘opposite’ and ‘in front of’ when giving direction. This #GrammarTrivia will explain both ‘opposite’ and ‘in front of’ as a preposition.
Opposite as a preposition means on the other side of (something or someone): across from (something or someone).
e.g. Brisbol Park Hospital is located opposite Tumaini supermarket. (The two buildings are facing each other).
In front of as a preposition means in a position just ahead or at the front part of someone or something else.
e.g. Jack is standing in front of Jill. (Jill is standing behind Jack; they are not facing each other).
That’s all for today’s session. Thank you and bye!
