Articels: The/A/An

There are only three articles in the English language: a, an and the.

Their actual use is a complex one especially when you get into the advanced  English. Quite often you have to work by what sounds right, which can be frustating  for a learner.

We usually use no articles when we talk about things in general. - The doesn't mean all.

For example: "Books are expensive." = ( All books are expensive)

"The book are expensive."= ( Not all the books are expensive, just the ones i am talking about.)

A and AN:

A and AN are the indefinite articels. They refer to something not specifically known to the person you are communicating with.

You use a when the noun you are referring to begins with a consonant.

You use an when the noun you are referring to begins with a vowel.

For example: "I saw  an  elephant at the zoo."

" I ate  a  banana for lunch."


You use The when you know that the listener knows or can work out what particular person/thing you are talking about.

For example: " The apple you ate was rotten."

" Did you lock the car."

You should also use the when you have already  mentioned the thing you are talking about.

For example: " She's got two children; a girl and a boy. The girl's eight and the boy's fourteen."

We also use the when we know there is only one  of a paricular thing.

For example: "The Sun, The Wind, The World, The North Pole.."

However if you want to describe a particular instance of these you should use a/an.

For example: "I could hear the wind. / There is a cold wind blowing."

" What are your plans for the future? / She has a promising future ahead of her."


That is all for today.. Stay tuned  for other lessons. 

Best regards.
