alex i really interest this leason and i like the way teach

mohamedrashid

alex im still confusin this words •This apple.
•That apple.
•These apples.
•Those apples

mohamedrashid

    Hi,

    This and that are singular
    These and those are plural

    This can be used when you are near by persons or something.

    Example for this: You and your friend are sitting together and referring/looking some picture/photo and you are saying to your friend “see this picture is very nice”

    These can be used when you are near/very close by persons or something but it should be plural manner.

    Example for these: You and your friend are sitting together and referring/looking some pictures’/photos’ and you are saying to your friend “see these pictures’ are very nice”

    Now I’m giving an explanation about “that”

    Please read this scenario carefully:

    That can be used when something is far or you are ignoring something.

    Example for something far “That”:

    Just make an assumption you are walking on street with your girl friend and you are saying “see that rose is awesome”

    Example for something far “Those”:

    Just make an assumption you are walking on street with your girl friend and you are saying “see those roses’ are awesome”

    Note: When you are combing more than one rose you should say “those” and if it is only one rose then you should say “that”.

    Example for ignoring something “That”:

    If anyone giving chocolate to you for his/her birthday and you are saying I don’t want this “5 star” chocolate and I want that Diary milk chocolate.

    Hope you are perfect with these examples!!!

    Warm Regards,
    Mohammed Shahith(India)

    khrmsr

      very good.
      This and That are use to indicate singular
      -this:use when item or person is close by or in your hands.
      -that:when is away from you.
      These and Those are use to indicate plural;
      -these:items or peoples are close to you.
      -those:items or peoples are away from you.

      -these

      Judith

Hi Alex! Thanks for the lesson ;-)
May I ask you something?
How is right to say with the noun “days
like for example if I wanna say: I’ve been working hard these days
Is it right?
and another example the sentence “these couple days” – Does it sound wrong and english speakers don’t say like this?

Thanks ;-)

karan

Hey Alex! Greetings from Germany!
First of all I wanted to mention that your explanation is just great! I always understand everything you say! But I’ve still a question about these, those, this and that. I talked to my friend from the US recently and we were talking on the phone ( if that matters ) about some topics and themes.
What shall I use in this case? ” Yeah I love this topic we are talking about right now ” ?
Or “that”? I mean.. a topic can’t be close to me or far away from me so I’m really confused about that. There are many words like that. Another one is “situation”. ” I don’t like “this?” situation ” ” I didn’t like “this?” situation “? I mean, the situation happened, but still, its neither close to me nor far away
Thank your alot for your help and your lessons!
I appreciate that alot!!

Kader

    Hi,
    With respect to phone conversation you and your friend are for away so better you can say Yeah, I love “that” topic because its too tragedy

    Please let me know if you have any question!!!

    Warm Regards,
    Mohammed Shahith (India)

Hi Alex, thanks for the video. I have a question about how to use “his, her, its, their, our and mine”, I know how to use most of them but for example when you say “That person was with his/her/its?? dog? when you don’t specify a gender, how do you know which of these 3 options you have to use? the same case happens when you use “anyone/someone/everybody/etc… Thank you!

I can’t understanding.Why the sentence: (These sunglasses are great!)is incorrect.(That boys is wearing a red hat.) is correct.

Angela

    Hi Angela,

    You are right. The sentence “These sunglasses are great” is correct, and “That boys is wearing a red hat” is incorrect. Does the quiz say something different?

    Alex

      Hi teacher can you tell me that where we can use “IT” because you said that this is used for near,and that is used for far. Reply me please

Thanks Alex for the demo on this, that, etc. I am taking a grammar exam this Wed to complete my Tefl Certificate. Having left school age 14 & I’m now 53 I’m really struggling to understand, but working hard at it. Right now I’m studying past exam questions & trying to answer them. I am doing error corrections right now, I must write the sentence in the correct form & explain the rule I would describe to the student. The latter part of the question is giving me the most trouble. Can you please help me to understand how to explain the rules simply. I am in Granada right now, the students I’ve been practicing with are spanish. I firstly need to understand these rules or how can I possibly help speakers of another language to understand. Thats really difficult in a 4 week programme.
The immediate question is:
1. This box contains less oranges than that one.
2.The new book is gooder than the previous one.
3.The eggs are adding to the cake mixture.
4.If I were rich, I will buy a swimming pool.
Alex I have tried to correct 2 previous sentences & spent hours doing so. I dont think they are entirely correct but if I continue this way it will be next Wed. before I finish this sample paper. Would you please help me somewhat get a handle on the rules for the above 4 so that I can then go ahead & try to correct & explain rules for the next 6 questions myself. Many thanks. Hope I hear from you. I will be really appreciative of any help. Sandy (FRom Dublin Ireland)Go raibh maith agat.

    khrmsr

Dear Teacher
When I do the quiz I chose the second sentence as correct one but when I checked the answers it was wrong and third one is the correct , but it is not the same while boy have s in the end!!While “this” is for single!! Can you please explain that to me?
Which sentence is incorrect?
These sunglasses are great!
This movie is boring.
That boys is wearing a red hat.
Those pants look good on you.
We must say “That boy,” because “that” is for single objects that are far away from us.

Mohammad

    Hi,

    You can say that boy but you can’t say that boys.

hi sadia islam we can say that apple if it is ( single and far away from us ) and we say this apple if it is ( single and close to us )and in the plural we say ( these apples / close to us ) and (those apples / far of us ) i hope that you understand the rule , thanks

rajaa

very good……..!!!!!!

Marthino

thank you very much sir
I’m beginning to learn English new

sumetha2007

Hi Readers,

The quiz # 4 answer is incorrect because no apostrophe between boys example “boy’s”. If you want to bring this answer in right way you should write or say “That boy’s is wearing a red hat”.

Note: when you use the term boys, Womans and Childs it always express plural term only and if you wanted to say something in singular manner please place the apostrophe before the s to show singular possession.
Note: Use the apostrophe to show possession whenever it’s required.

Warm regards,
Mohammed Shahith (India)

These sunglasses are great!
This movie is boring.
That boys is wearing a red hat.
Those pants look good on you.
We must say “That boy,” because “that” is for single objects that are far away from us.

It should be THAT BOY or THOSE BOYS, right?

thanks all of you teachers actually Mr. alex but i want to know what is the corect answer for number for /It should be THAT BOY or THOSE BOYS, right?

This, that, these and those are demonstrative pronouns.
This is used when you are pointing at something near that is just singular.
That is when you are pointing something far and singular.
These is when you are pointing something near and plural.
Those,far and plural.
A friend of mine gave me a link for me to learn English even further.

Hi Alex, please could you help me out? I don’t know how to use these or those in context of the sentence. For instance:

Sonny has many qualities worth recognizing, and the purpose of this letter is to point out two of [these/those] qualities.

There is any gramatic rule for apply in this kind of cases?

Thanks in advance

Thank You Alex :)

Alex, in the sentence number 4 is write: That boys is wearing a red hat. Is it correct? Because boys is plural. And it showed to me in the quiz, like correct answer.

Jeff Biancolini

Thanks for the lesson. great.

Mauritian

Confusing!

that boys or those boys?

4. Which sentence is incorrect?
These sunglasses are great!
This movie is boring.
That boys is wearing a red hat.
Those pants look good on you.
We must say “That boy,” because “that” is for single objects that are far away from us.

Oh well the answer is correct…for incorrect sentence

Alex, can I say “This book in your hand is mine!”?

Because it is close to whom I speak? Or even in this situation, because it is far from me, I must use that?

Thank you very much!

Hello, Alex! There is a mistake in your quiz question #2.
2. If one apple is far away from you, you say…
This apple.
These apples.
That apple.
Those apples.

The right variant of answers is 3, not 4.
