Spanish Prepositions

Spanish Prepositions are 'Where?' or 'When?' words, which give information about where something is or when something happens. They are usually placed before a noun and their role is to link the noun with the rest of the sentence.

For example:
El libro está sobre la mesa.The book is on the table.
Estoy a lado de la escuela.I am beside the school.

The Spanish Preposition for above, over or on is sobre....
(which sounds like SOBER), so ....

....imagine that above the people in the courtroom is a very SOBER judge.

And visualize a picture ... as above.
