Goal

It’s time to learn how we express the movement of a person or an object. 

You can watch the video or go straight to the written explanation. You decide!

Once you’ve finished, you can move to step 4.


Language Discovery

Look at the words in blue in the text in step 1. What do they have in common?

  1.  They are all verbs.
  2.  These actions are of movement.

Look at the words in green in the text in step 1. What do they have in common?

  1.  They are prepositions or adverbs.
  2.  They give more information about the movement.

Motion Verb + Preposition

To show movement from one place to another place we first need a motion verb (go, walk, run, etc) + a preposition

The most common example is “Go to”, the preposition “to” indicates where we go.

Here are examples with the same verb:

Sheranunder the tree shades.
over the bridge.
into the park.
out of the park.
along the river.
across the field.
round the playground.
through the tall grass
up the hill.
past the ice cream shop.
towards his house.
down the hill.

In vs into    out vs out of

We use in/out when there is NO noun.

Hello! Come in!

Your shoes are dirty! Go out!

We use into/out of with a noun.

Hello! Come into my house!

Your shoes are dirty! Go out of the house and take them off.

Dig a little deeper!

Through vs Across


We use across when we go over a surface from one side to the other, like a field, road or river.
We use through when we go from one side to another but in something, e.g. a forest, tunnel, window, a crowd of people, etc

He walked through the forest

They ran across the bridge.
