    I had to read your question a couple of times to understand what you mean, but I'll try my best...

    1) If you mean prepositions, you'll get used to using them by practising. Take the time to learn them properly.

    2) Sorry, you cannot drop them when you speak. If you do, eg. "out my mind", then you'll sound like a poor speaker... or, you could even change the meaning of the sentence. You must use prepositions and other small words (eg. articles) properly. These aren't optional.

    3) It is also important to say the endings of words properly - if anything, make the sound a little heavier than you are used to. One common pronunciation mistake made by students is making the ending too light or even omitting the sound. The result is that the listener can't understand what is being said.
