phanikumar

Hey Rebecca!

Thanks for your lesson!

I think my country is an exception because English people speak always about ‘The Netherlands’ even though they not mean our whole Kingdom but only the part in Europe!?
And when you will speak the whole name of my country you see ‘The’ twice:
THE Kingdom of THE Netherlands.
But you don’t say: The Kingdom of THE Sweden or The Kingdom of THE Great Britain and THE Northern Ireland it is just THE Kingdom of Sweden and THE Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Why it is? (We are special: JEAH!!!! :P )

Bye! Rick

rick1234

anoopkrishna

hello. I don’t understand one thing. You didn’t spoke about objects, people, etc.

When do we use “The”?

The leader/The manager/The dog/The laptop/The windows/The air/The substance/The sex/The duty/The moral/The life…etc

This word, and all the others, when do we use “The” or when do we not use “The” ??? Can explain this?

Just me

Do we have to use ”the” article before Netherlands?

spakseeda

thanx so much

gege86

One interesting case is “The Republic of The Congo”.
“The” before “Republic” is the same case as with states.
But why there is “The” in front of “Congo”?
What I think, this is because “Congo” means “Hunters” in congo. So, it looks like “The Republic of The Hunters” and in this way it’s same case as “The Republic of The Philippines”.
Am I right?

dzung

It’s really nice ..!

Sarath Alokam

Hello Ma’am Rebecca I like the way you teach. your a great teacher than my prof and my high school teacher. Anyway regarding to question number 9. I didn’t use ” the ” ‘coz Philippines is a country. But the correct answer is Melanie is from the Philippines. I’m from Philippines too:) it is called ” Pilipinas” in our language.
I want to know why I have to use “the”. Thank You and God Bless

mskuletzzz

    I think the answer is correct as Rebbeca said for plural countries ‘the’ must be used and as far as I know there are many islands in Philippines that s why its name plural
