LEARN SPANISH PREPOSITIONS
Prepositions are little words that help us to establish relations between different elements of a sentence. They can show a movement, time and position relationship among two or more objects within the sentence. Prepositions in Spanish are invariable, that is, they do not take on masculine and feminine or singular and plural. They will always have the same form. In Spanish we have single prepositions, that is, an only word, and complex prepositions which are formed by more than one word. Here is a list of the single prepositions in Spanish:

POSITION OF PREPOSITIONS:
Prepositions normally go before the nouns or pronouns
in the sentence.
María está en casa. (María is at home)
In questions it is frequent
to find the preposition at the beginning of the sentence, even when they start by
a question word.
¿Con quién va María? (Who does María go with?)
When using a
relative pronoun it is frequent to find the preposition before the relative pronoun.
Esta es la casa en donde crecí. (This is the house where I grew up)
