prepositions are: di, ke, and dari.
Preposition di (in, at, on) indicates that the action occurs in the place indicated by the following noun and there is no movement.
Preposition ke (to) indicates movement toward, and preposition dari (from) indicates movement away.
These prepositions can be combined with a set of locative pronouns, which indicate position in relation to the speaker. The locative pronouns are sini 'here' (near speaker), situ 'there' (not far off), and sana 'there' (far off). These three locative prepositions also can be combined with a set of locative nouns which indicate location in relation to the following noun.
ada di bawah tempat tidur.
Shoes are under the bed.
2. Anak-anak itu berenang ke seberang sungai.
Those children swim to the other side of the river.
