Hi, there this is Harry and welcome back to my English learning podcast Speak Better English where I try to help you to get a better understanding of the English language. I do that by trying to improve your grammar, to help you to use phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions in the right way.

In this particular podcast episode, we’re going to talk about the word ‘beyond’. And we’re going to learn English collocations with beyond.

how to use the word beyond

The word ‘beyond’ can be used in a couple of ways.

It can be used as a preposition. In this case, it is followed by a noun.

The wall beyond my garden gate.

Meaning here is my garden gate and then there’s a wall after. Or when you open the gate, there’s a wall.

It can also be used as an adverb. In this case, we use it without the following noun.

They landed on the Moon. Now they are investigating the possibility of landing on the planet Mars and beyond.
