Some ESL students use too many articles when they write in English while others don't use enough. What are the rules? How do you know whether to choose a, an or the? Do you know what "zero article" is?
Articles are words that go before nouns in English. This lesson will help you understand and review the rules for using definite and indefinite articles. In order to use articles correctly, however, there are some things you'll need to know about nouns first. By the end of this lesson, you should be able to identify singular, plural, and non-count nouns and choose the correct article for a variety of situations.
