Articles -  a, an & the  -  English Grammar lesson
Articles - a, an & the - English Grammar lesson Take the quiz - http://www.learnex.in/articles-a-an-the/ The 3 articles in English are a, an and the. The learner has to decide noun-by-noun which one of the articles to use. In fact, there are 4 choices to make, because sometimes no article is necessary. Native-speakers, of course, use the articles correctly without thinking. English learners, on the other hand, need to have some guidelines for making the right choice - particularly those learners whose own language does not have articles. The guidelines that follow in this lesson should help ESL students to a basic understanding of English article use. The words a, an and the are known as articles. • We use an before words that begin with vowels (a,e,i,o,u). E.g. I found an orange boat. However there are few exceptions like the words honest and hour. In the words honest and hour the alphabet h is silent and therefore the letter o becomes the first alphabet of the word and hence we use the article an. E.g. Mr. Smith is an honest man. I will be with you in an hour. We use a before words that begin with consonants (all the letters of the alphabet except the vowels). E.g. Bumble is a baby elephant. • We use the before words that we have already spoken about. E.g. I bought an apple. The apple is very sweet.

Let’s connect: Instagram – /vinitzita Facebook - @zitaeducation Twitter – @ZITAEducation Email- [email protected] In this live session we teach you how to read newspaper. We are reading one of the articles written by Mini Kapoor & published in one of the national newspapers- The Hindu. We have also provided vocabulary used in this article. Most people offer excuse that they don’t read newspaper because they don’t understand English of newspaper; while it is other way round- You don’t understand English of newspaper because you don’t read newspaper! In this video we show you how to make it useful for the learning of the English language and also to succeed in different competitive exams. The editorial pages of the prominent newspapers are rich in thought & vocabulary. They have a lot to offer in aspects of knowledge, vocabulary, current affairs and also grammar. Make it a point to read at least one editorial a day, they should indeed form the core of your refreshing process of reading & learning. A newspaper can be an excellent English teacher & not a very expensive one! The moment you find an interesting word, underline it & jot it down on a notebook after finishing the article. Now, look for its meaning in the dictionary and also search for its synonyms and antonyms. Most newspapers follow a set vocabulary pattern. Once you master certain words that a newspaper uses, your comprehension will go up & so will your confidence. If you come across different phrases and idioms, underline them too and learn their meanings & usage. Make a separate notebook for newspaper vocabulary & browse through these words every now & then. Don’t lose hope if you don’t understand words or articles in the beginning. Rome was not built in a day. It takes time to learn something worthwhile. The most important thing that you as a learner can develop is reading sense. You might not know the meaning of a particular word. So what? Try to guess it & when you crosscheck later on you will pleasantly surprise yourself. You may go awfully wrong at times but who said you will not fail. In your failures lie your most profound learning! Remember, how you learnt your native language. Once you are done with reading the editorial/article, now you need to go slow and look up for the different words and sentences which you have struggled to understand earlier. Don’t leave the comprehension to be understood later. Later could be never, so do it there and then. Investigate the entire subject of the article and makes notes of different words, phrases and idioms. Try to find out the general idea behind the editorial and this will also fortify your current affairs section. Hope you will develop a habit of reading newspaper on daily basis after watching this video.

Articles (a, an, the) - Lesson 1 - 7 Rules For Using Articles Correctly - English Grammar
In this lesson, learn the 7 rules for using articles in English correctly. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I will teach you the seven rules that you need to know for using articles in English correctly. Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’, and ‘the’. There is a final quiz at the end of the lesson for you to test your understanding. OK, the first rule is about where to use ‘a’ and where to use ‘an’. So rule number one is use ‘a’ before a consonant sound, and ‘an’ before a vowel sound. So in all of these words – you see that they start with a consonant sound. Cat starts with /k/, dog starts with /d/, boy with /b/, girl with /g/, house with /h/ and tree with /t/. So we say ‘a cat’, ‘a dog’, ‘a boy’, ‘a girl’, ‘a house’, ‘a tree’ etc. Notice that in natural speech, we don’t say ‘a’, we say ‘uh’ – like ‘a cat’. In this next set of words, you see that, they all start with a vowel sound – apple starts with /ae/, engineer starts with /e/, ice-cream with /ai/, old with /o/, umbrella with /uh/. So we say ‘an apple’, ‘an engineer’, ‘an ice-cream cone’, ‘an old womman’, ‘an umbrella’ and so on. In speech, we don’t say ‘an’, we say /ən/. Let’s do a small exercise. You see ten items on the screen. For each one, I want you to say if you would use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before it. Stop the video, think about it, then play the video again and check. OK here are the answers. Did you get them all right? I want to focus on items number seven to ten because these are a little tricky. Number seven is ‘a university’ because even though ‘university’ starts with the letter ‘u’ the first sound of the word is not a vowel sound. We don’t say /ooniversity/. We say /yoo-nə- vər-si-ty/ so that first sound is a /y/ sound, which a consonant sound, so we say ‘a university.’ Number eight is similar. The word ‘European’ starts with a /y/ sound, so ‘a European tour.’ In number nine, the spelling has an ‘h’ at the start but that ‘h’ is silent. We don’t say /hau-ər/, we say /au-ər/. The first sound is an /au/ sound which is a vowel sound, so this is ‘an hour’. In the same way, in number ten, we say MA. ‘M’ starts with an /e/ sound which is again a vowel sound, so ‘an MA in English’. OK let’s move on to rule number two: Use ‘a’ and ‘an’ ONLY with singular, countable nouns. We say that a noun is countable if we can count it – one, two, three, four etc. All of these words on the screen are countable. We can say one elephant, three cars, ten teachers, five hundred onions and so on. Now if you talk about one person or thing, like one elephant or one car, then that’s called a singular noun and if you say ten teachers or five hundred onions, those are called plural nouns. Uncountable nouns cannot be counted in this way. Nouns like water, sugar, milk, love, anger, knowledge are some examples. If you think about it, you cannot say “I drank four waters” or “I want eight milks”. To a person, you can say “I love you” but you can’t say “I have five loves for you” – that doesn’t make any sense. So these are all uncountable. Alright, so the rule is - you can only use ‘a’ and ‘an’ if you’re talking about one person or one thing. Let’s do another quick exercise. Here are ten items again. This time, you see ‘a’ or ‘an’ before the nouns, but some of these are wrong. They should NOT have ‘a’ or ‘an’ before them. Stop the video, identify the mistakes, then play the video again and check. OK, here are the answers. Number three is wrong because ‘shirts’ is a plural and you cannot use ‘a’ or ‘an’ before a plural noun. Number five is wrong because ‘happiness’ is uncountable, so again, ‘a’ or ‘an’ cannot be used there. The same goes for number six – water is uncountable. Number nine is wrong because ‘doctors’ is a plural – you can say ‘a doctor’ but not ‘a doctors’. And finally, in number ten, advice is an uncountable noun – so you cannot ask for ‘an advice’. Now a quick note here: the article ‘the’ can be used with all kinds of nouns – singular or plural countable nouns, and uncountable nouns. OK, so let’s now talk about how to choose between ‘a’ or ‘an’ and ‘the’. Here’s rule number three: Use ‘a’ or ‘an’ to talk about a person or thing unknown to your listener. And use ‘the’ to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, “My sister has two computers: a PC and a laptop. The PC is quite old but the laptop is brand new.” I say ‘a PC’ and ‘a laptop’ because that’s the first time I’m mentioning the two computers. That is, until this point, they are unknown to you, the listener.

Informal English: Dropping articles | Advanced English Lesson
Get my FREE ebook guide to learning Australian English: https://aussieenglish.lpages.co/ae-guide1/ My name's Pete and I'm the host of the Aussie English Podcast, a podcast dedicated to teaching people Australian English as well as general advanced English. Many of my students, listeners, and viewers, arrive in Australia, Down Under, with a solid level in English, but they don't speak as naturally and effortlessly as they would like to, just like native English speakers do. They often ask about the following topics: - How can I speak better informal English? - When do English speakers drop articles? - Is dropping articles common in informal English? - What tips do you have for advanced English learners? In this video, I talk about how native English speakers like to drop articles when writing informal English to close friends, colleagues, and family in emails, messages, and on social media. The trick here for dropping articles is to do it when the person you're writing a message or email to undoubtedly knows what you're referring too, and thus, doesn't need the article there. By doing this, you can write short, concise, messages and emails and sound a lot more like a native English speaker when you write in informal English. Watch this Advanced English Lesson video several times. Once to get a feel for the language used, and two or three more times to learn and then practice the English vocabulary that you hear and read on screen. ✔ Support Aussie English: http://bit.ly/2uhkFrh ✔ AE Classroom: http://bit.ly/2nddc9O ✔ Podcast/Website: http://bit.ly/2jSZ5zG ✔ Private lessons - http://bit.ly/2CZkhhM How can you help Aussie English? ▶️ 1.

10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension
10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension 1. "Never read a book without a pen in your hand." ~ Benjamin Franklin - That's great advice whether you write in your books or take notes in a notebook. Personally, I write, scribble, highlight, argue and draw symbols in all my books. 2. Read a whole paragraph / section BEFORE you stop to highlight or take a note. Don't stop right when you see something interesting; keep reading to get the "big picture" or context of what stood out to you. Then "reread" when you make your notes. 3. Read important sections out loud. A person reads much slower when you read out loud than when you read silently, but studies show that if you read out loud, you tend to retain things better because you're engaging multiple senses (hearing and seeing). 4. Read silently with quick "check-marks." There are times when you should read silently and simply use a pencil to "check" sections in the margins you want to go back and reread later. This will help you get through a book quicker without being distracted by stopping to highlight or write. 5. Explain what you read. When you finish a chapter / section of a book, take a break and "think" about what you've read and, in your mind, "explain it" to someone. See if you can structure your thoughts so as to be able to repeat back to someone what you've read. This is a great exercise. I do this A LOT when I read - and actually "talk through it" out loud to myself walking around my office or in the car. 6. Learn to "X-ray" a book by reviewing the Table of Contents and only reading the sections / chapters that will be benefit you. And don't feel like you have to read an entire book. 7. Pay attention to summary words - "therefore" or "as a result" or "in conclusion." When you see a summary / conclusion word, make sure you understand the author's points and argument that has led to his conclusion. 8. Circle / Underline key words in a sentence. 9. Mark words you don't know - and look them up! If you have a Kindle this is much easier. Looking up words you don't know increases your understanding of the author's intent, but it also increases your vocabulary! 10. You should read How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren. This is a "must read" book! You can get a great price on it at Amazon or WTSBooks.com.

How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English?  - Basic English Grammar lesson
How to use articles 'a', 'an', and 'the' in English? - Basic English Grammar lesson English articles ("a", "an", and "the") come before nouns. They help to communicate which thing you're talking about, similar to words like "this", "my", and "all". And they're confusing to a lot of English learners. Articles are really, really hard! If your native language doesn't use articles, they can be really confusing. The truth is, you might never completely master articles. Most non-native English speakers don't, even know if they're quite fluent and have spoken English for a very long time. That's mostly OK. Mistakes with articles don't usually get in the way of communication. Your listeners or readers will usually be able to figure out what you mean by guessing whether you meant "a thing" or "the thing". So while you should try to improve your skill with articles, you shouldn't worry much about them. This video lesson by Niharika will clear your basic doubts for using articles correctly.

Articles (a, an, the) | Learn English | Canguro English
Join Sandra and I as we study articles. Don't forget to read the notes below. See you in class! ***** In English there are two types of articles; definite and indefinite. Articles precede and describe nouns. THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE First, let's look at the indefinite article. There are two; a and an. Indefinite articles are used when when the subject of the noun is not specific, or to introduce something that is not known to the listener. We do not put a/an in front of plural nouns, they can only be used in front of singular nouns. For example; He always goes to a small place. (We don't know the place) We know an old woman. (We don't know the woman) I love red shoes! (Plural noun) A or an? A is used in front of consonant sounds, and an is used in front of vowel sounds. Usually, this is easy; if the word starts with a consonant, use a, if it starts with a vowel, use an, but remember that we are talking about pronunciation, and not spelling. This is important because sometimes we pronounce consonants as vowels and vice versa. For example; A dog An ambulance A UN decision (UN is pronounced "you-en", which starts with a consonant) An SOS message (SOS is pronounced "es-oh-es" which starts with a vowel) FIXED EXPRESSIONS WITH A/AN We also use a/an in expressions such as: Half an hour Twice a year a few €2 a litre A or one? You can use a/an or one in front of singular countable nouns to mean the same thing, for example: We are going to Canada for a year We are going to Canado for one year But it's important to remember that one is a number, and that a/an are articles. So we only use one when we want to emphasise the quantity, for example; I want one orange juice (not two!!) Are you staying only one night? (not more than one!!) THE DEFINITE ARTICLE Definite articles are used when the subject of the noun has been mentioned before. For example; The woman takes a small child. I sometimes see the child. I know a place. It is the big place. Definite articles are also used when the subject of the noun is already known to the listener. For example; I never see the small part. (We already know the part) The right eyes are always different. (We already know the eyes) As you can see, definite articles can be used in front of singular and plural nouns, and before consonants and vowels. THE ZERO ARTICLE In certain specific situations in English we don't use any article (called the zero article). Usually this is when we talk about concepts, rather than specific things, for example; I love to play sport (not the sport) They are afraid of heights (not the heights) Climate can affect your mood (not the climate) There are lots of other rules about the zero article, but they will be covered in other classes.

Read, Understand, and Remember! Improve your reading skills with the KWL Method
Is it difficult for you to understand or remember what you read? In this video, I will teach you an easy method that will help you become better at reading difficult material such as textbooks and journal articles. It is known as the "KWL" reading method. You will also remember more of what you read by using this method. If you plan to study at an English school, college, or university, this method will really help you. You can also use this method to help you in the IELTS and TOEFL exams. Try the KWL method yourself and tell me how it works for you in the comments! Take the quiz! https://www.engvid.com/kwl-reading-method/ TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I am going to teach you how to be a better reader. So I want you to think about your life. Are there any things that are very difficult for you to read? Maybe you have to read something in English and you really don't understand what's happening in the story. Or maybe you're in university and you're taking a very hard course and you can't read the textbook because it's really difficult and you don't know what's happening. Well, if you're having difficulty reading or even if you just want to remember what you read more and be a better studier, this video is for you. So first let's look at some things students might be reading that might be causing difficulty. Some students in their universities they have to read textbooks. If you go to university or college, or also high school, you have to do a lot of reading and you have to do a lot of complicated reading, especially for sciences, maths, history. So, this is a very good method. I'm going to teach you how to read these books better. Newspapers. Sometimes you'll be reading the newspaper and it's difficult, especially in another language. So if you're reading a newspaper and, you know, you want to be better at reading it, this video is for you. Internet sources. There's a lot of great things on the internet to read, and so this will also help you if you look reading things from the internet. Magazines. Journals, for anyone who's a professional, whether you're a doctor, a nurse, a historian, or if you're in university or college, a lot of the times you have to read something called a journal, which is something for professionals to read about their field. So it's usually modern research. These things can be very difficult to read, so if you're reading these, this is a great technique for you. If you're doing the TOEFL or IELTS. Although I wouldn't recommend using this technique on the actual exam, I think it's great for your practice tests and I'll tell you why a bit later. So you can use this when you're practicing for the TOEFL and IELTS. And finally, if you're reading Shakespeare. When I read Shakespeare I had no idea what was going on. It was very confusing, all of the old English. I found it very difficult to read. There are also a lot of books that can be very, very hard to read. So these techniques will really work for you for any of these situations and many more. So before I teach you about the KWL technique, I just want you to think about reading for a second. Okay? A lot of people when they pick up a book, that's all they do. They open it up and they start reading right away, and then they close the book and then a lot of the times they don't really remember anything they read or they don't understand what they read. So it's a lot of wasted time. I like to think of reading how I think of jogging or running. So if we look here, I have the word "running" or "jogging". If you like exercise, any type of exercise kind of follows this format. So, reading is a lot like running. What a good reader does is they have a warm up period. So if you think about running, before you go running you usually stretch. Maybe you'll do a little bit of movement to get your heart pumped. So you don't just start running. You do a warm up. The same is true with reading. The best reading... The best readers usually do a warm up. For exercise, people then usually run or jog for a certain amount of time, and then afterwards they have what we call a cooldown period. So, "cooldown" is usually when somebody wants to slow their heartrate, so maybe they walk instead of run, maybe they do more stretches, but they don't just stop what they're doing. They slowly, you know, do slower activities before they stop jogging or running. So if you think about reading like exercise, you should also have a warm up, and then you read, and then the cooldown. This is the meat. This is the main idea of the KWL method, and I'm going to teach you exactly how we can do all of this when we read.

13 Uses of 'THE' - Articles (a, an, the) - Lesson 2 - English Grammar
In this lesson, you will learn the 13 USES of THE. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Welcome back. This is lesson two of my series on articles. If you haven’t seen the first lesson, you will find the link to the full playlist below. Alright, in this lesson, I will show you 13 uses of the definite article – ‘the’. As always, there’s a quiz at the end to test your understanding. Use number one is something we discussed in the previous lesson. This is also the most important use. Use 'the' to talk about a person or thing known to your listener. For example, "Julie has a nine-year-old son. The boy wants to be an astronaut." Here, I first say 'a nine-year old son' because you don't know him yet. But once I have introduced him in the sentence, I then say 'The boy' because he is now known to you. Here's another example: "Can you answer the phone?" If I say this to you, then there's probably a phone ringing somewhere. So the phone is already known to you, and I say 'the phone'. And finally, "This is the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday." This example is a little different because if I stop with "This is the watch" - you will be confused because you don't know the watch. But then if I give you more information about the watch - it's the watch that my sister gave me for my birthday - so that way it becomes known to you. Let's now move on to use number two: use 'the' with unique things – that is, where there is only one of something. For example, we say ‘the sun’ (because there’s only one sun). Similarly, ‘the moon’, ‘the sky’, ‘the world’, ‘the universe’ and so on. Here are a couple of sentences: "Everyone knows that the sun rises in the east." and "Rahul has traveled all over the world." Some other things we consider unique are ‘the government’, 'the police', 'the Internet' and so on. As in these sentences: “The police are investigating a murder in our neighborhood.” and “Almost everybody uses the Internet today.” OK the next use is with some words referring to nature or the environment in a general way. These are words such as the countryside (which means rural or village areas), the town, the mountains, the weather etc. For example, "My son enjoys spending time in the countryside." It means my son likes to spend time relaxing in rural areas. Here are a couple more sentences: "We're going to take a trip to the mountains." and "I love the weather in Los Angeles." Use number four is talking about objects of common experience like in the expressions that you see on the screen. We say that these are objects of common experience because we all experience these in our lives. Have a look at this example: "I met an interesting man at the park yesterday." You may not know which park but it doesn't matter - the park is common experience. In the same way "Did you read the newspaper this morning?" I don't care which newspaper you read, I just want to know if read one today. Here's another example: "Darren likes to sing in the shower." We also use 'the ' with some types of media (including the word 'media' itself) and also forms of entertainment. For example, "I don't listen to the radio a lot these days." or “Pooja is at the movies with her friends." Note that 'at the movies' means at a movie theatre. But it's important to note that TV doesn't work this way. You can use 'the' with TV if you mean a television set. Like "Will you help me move the TV?" But if you mean television as a medium, then you say 'on TV' - as in "I saw a documentary on TV today." Not 'on the TV'. It's just a crazy rule in English. Let's move on to use number five now. Use 'the' with some time expressions. You see these on the screen - we always use 'the' in these expressions. For example, "Kids hate getting up early in the morning.", "A friend of mine got married the day before yesterday." and "We love to go swimming in the summer." We also say ‘the past’, ‘the present’ and ‘the future’ probably because there's only one past, present and future. Like in this sentence: "We must learn our lessons from the past and work towards the future." 'The' is also found in time expressions like ‘the eighteenth century’, 'the 1960s' (or simply 'the 60s') and so on. For example, "This house was built by my grandfather in the sixties." Now you have to be a little careful with time expressions because there are many that should be used without articles. You see some of these on the screen. We will discuss these more in the next lesson when we talk about where to use no article. The next use is superlative forms. These are expressions like ‘the best’, ‘the worst’, ‘the biggest’, ‘the smallest’ and so on.

Grammar: Using THE with common and abstract nouns
An abstract noun is a word that means a general concept or idea, like "life" or "friendship". We can use "the" with common nouns, as in "the sky is blue". But can we use "the" with abstract nouns? For example, would you say "happiness is important" or "the happiness is important"? If you are not sure, watch this lesson to learn when to use "the" with general and abstract nouns. Don't forget to take the quiz afterwards to test your understanding! http://www.engvid.com/grammar-the-common-abstract-nouns/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. Many English learners have trouble deciding when to use "the" or no "the", so I understand that problem, I know it can be a little bit confusing, but I believe that by the end of this lesson, you're going to find it much easier. Okay? So let's start with a little quiz first to see where you stand regarding that word "the". So, let's look at this first example. Should you say: "Life is beautiful." or "The life is beautiful."? Okay. Think about it. Decide. Another one: "Friendship is precious." or "The friendship is precious."? Which one is right? Think for yourself. We'll do one more, and then I'll give you the answers. "Happiness is important." or "The happiness is important."? Which one is correct? Do you know? How do you know? How do you decide which one is right? I'll tell you. When we're talking about something which is a general concept or idea, then we do not use "the". Okay? For example, let's take the first one. "Life is beautiful." Now, life is a general concept, so we do not need "the". So, this is the correct answer. All right? Not this. "Life is beautiful." Because life is a general idea, a general concept. Okay? We're not talking about anything specific. If we say: "The life of wise people is beautiful." that is something specific, and then we would be correct to say: "The life". Okay? But if we're just talking in general, then no "the". Let's look at the next example. "Friendship is precious." Again, friendship is a general idea or a general concept, so this is correct. Okay? In this example, this one was wrong. But if I said, for example: "The friendship between those two children is precious." then that would be fine, because now I'm specifying which friendship. Right? The friendship between those two children, so then it becomes specific, and then we would use "the". But in this example, this is correct. Okay? Just like this was, and this is wrong, because this is a general idea. Okay? Next one: "Happiness is important." By now you know, again, happiness is a general idea, a general concept, so this is correct. In this example, it would be wrong to say: "The happiness", because: The happiness of what? So, if we say: "The happiness of my family is important." that's fine. That's very good. That would be a perfect sentence. But in this case, we cannot say: "The happiness is important." because we didn't specify which happiness. Okay? So, in this case, that's wrong, and this is correct. Okay? Now, the same principle applies to these. See if you can figure it out. Okay? "I want to make money." or "I want to make the money."? Which one do you think is right? Are we speaking in general, or are we speaking specifically? Well, we are speaking in general right now, so this is correct, because we're just talking about money; we didn't say which money. I want to make money. Right? General idea. If I said, for example: "I want to make the money I need to pay my rent." that's specific, so then I could say: "the money", because I'm explaining after that which money. Okay? But in this example, no. Next one: "She wants to lose weight." or "She wants to lose the weight."? Is it general or is it specific? What do you think? It's still general. Good. By now you're getting really smart. "She wants to lose weight." is a general term. Right? We're just talking about weight in general; not any specific weight. But if I say: "She wants to lose the weight she put on during the holidays." that's specific, and then I need "the". Okay? But not in this example. So, last one here: "He needs to earn respect." or do we say: "He needs to earn the respect."? Is it general or is it specific? By now you know, you'll really know. It's general. Very good. Okay? Because we didn't talk about any specific respect; we're talking about respect in general. So: "He needs to earn respect." But if this was being used, it would be something like: "He needs to earn the respect of his peers." Peers are people your age. Okay? Or: "He needs to earn the respect of his employees." for example, or "of his parents". Then it becomes specific. Which respect? The respect of his parents, the respect of his employees. All right? So, if it was specific, then we could say "the", but when we're just talking in general, we don't need "the". "Life is beautiful.", "Friendship is precious.", "Happiness is important.", "I want to make money.", "She wants to lose weight.", "He needs to earn respect."
Reading News Articles
In this lesson learners are made aware of different texts in newspapers in terms of the intention of the writer. We also discuss the different approaches one may take to reading different styles of articles. Learners are exposed to the criteria that editors use in selecting news articles by means of interviews with journalists and editors from the Sunday Times. The interviews will give learners an interesting insight into how newspapers are created, and will help them to understand that newspapers are texts that involve choices. You could use the criteria that journalists and editors claim they use to assess whether articles in the Sunday Times fulfil the criteria.
