Learn Spanish Compound Prepositions

Spanish has an assortment of replacements for most simple prepositions, which take the form of compound phrases: de acuerdo con for según, en dirección a for hacia, etc. They follow the same principle as English compound prepositions like in front of, on top of, etc. Sobre ("on") is often preferred as a less ambiguous alternative to en, which can mean either "on" or "in".

Compound prepositions are typically made up of:

  • Preposition + noun + preposition
  • Adverb + preposition
