2. Differentiation about an and a
- An/A is using in front of singular count nouns like a pen, a pen mean 1 pen it’s specific or count nouns.
- An is use for words that begin with vowel, example : I have an idea (a, i, e, o, u)
- A is use for words that begin with consonant, example : A dog bite some meat
3. Using The
For this course I’m gonna tell you just about characteristic of using the.
- The is always use for same thing that you and other person think in mind, example : the wind, the cloud, the hand and many more.
- The also use with singular count nouns, plural count nouns and noncount nouns.
- And usually native speaker use the for second mention of noun, example : I have a pen, and the pen is blue, of course the speaker and listener will have same thing in their mind.
