Gabby answers another question in this video lesson.
When do you use articles?
Many of you might think that articles in English are difficult, but Gabby is going to make it
really simple for you in this video.
‘The’ is called a Definite Article because we are talking about something specific. We’re talking
about something that we can clearly define.
There are certain words that you will not put after ‘The’.
‘All you need is love’.
For this expression you don’t need to add ‘The’ because it is referring to love in general.
However, when you say,
‘The love of a mother’
‘The’ is necessary because this is a statement about a specific kind of love. ‘The’ is necessary to
portray the idea clearly.
‘The’ is used when you talk about objects, specific locations, certain countries and even one
singular thing such as; The cat. The door. The car. The moon.
Practice using ‘The’ and practice listening for it in sentences. You’ll notice that when someone
forgets to say ‘The’, it may cause some confusion or disrupt the flow of a sentence.
