You should do a video about to vs at
Thank you for your lesson! I have one question. In the 6th sentence we have: "I think that THE current inflation has hit the unemployed hard". Why "THE current inflation"?
Very strange that some people made dislike to this amazing lesson.
I cannot link this title 'Saving children from life on the streets' to one of the categories you mentioned. Why 'the streets' while it is a general word?
Thanks you ma'am for thevideo it is very helpful. ...I have some doubts regarding the differences in the following sentences .. In the hospital in hospital at the hospital at hospital
Would you please explain about 'in the back of the car','back of the building' and 'members of the Cuban community'. Why do 'back' and 'members' not have 'the' in the 2nd and 3rd composition?

Hi Mam, I have a doubt in the exercises, which you presented in this video. My doubt at the first one: He used to play volleyball when he was in secondary school. Can we use 'The' before secondary school ? Could you please suggest me?
The moon
Minoo, and why people usuallysay "an even better idea"?
A moon
Thanks! for the good information about article, I have one confusion we often use "THE" article in between with the sentence as "have a look on the examples below" or sometimes with plural like the students etc. .... is saying"the students" or "of the students" is still correct?
Very helpful ! Thank you so much.
I appreciate

Oh my, "the" is hard.
I´m sorry, I don´t understand very well the excercise number 5(11:05) "It seems that 'the' current inflation has hit 'the' unemployed hard", what is the rule? Current inflation and unemployed are not as things in general? Thank you.

Could u please explain the 10th one?
Wow excelient mam he at ...... office? no, he is at ...... home.
Thank you so much.
Thanks it has been very helpful to me....I like ur teaching...
Thank you ma'am
I'm kind of familiar with AmE, but to be honest, saying 'I like piano', without the article 'the', just doesn't sound great. I'd still use 'the'.
I'm sorry ,but i could not understand that, NOTE: unlike other names, names of elements do not start with a capital letter
Can u please tell me that is the use before plurals or not but in this video u used the before pulrals sometimes i am bit confused to understand this pleas anwer me soon i m looking forward to ur reply 😑
Hello mam Why it is said the netherlands
EU is acronym or not why
Example1: why did we not put "the with secondary? example5: the same question
Thank you.It greatly helps me to improve english better!
Then "To the hospital" can't be said, but for example i've seen "From the hospital" How come that can be said? Thank you so much :)
Thanks for your clear explanations on articles. Really your channel is a gift for English learners.
Thank you very much! This lesson about 'the' article is the best I have ever seen! :)

Thanks for making this video, you always makes difficult things very easy.....Thanks a lot.
English is too hard :(
You said that if there is only one of something , you should use 'the'. So, why did you say: "Everest is the highest mountain on Earth". why you didn't use 'the' before 'Eerth'?
Thank you for your precise and clear explanation of thismost complicatedsubject
May i know why you've lived in U.A.E?
Hi Minoo! You are doing a great job! I follow your lessons. Is two years now. Could you upload a video-lesson about the use of the verb "to do" and one about the imperative form? I can't find those in the play-list... Thank you! Bye. Francesco

May ask u a favor ? when u answer the exercise, mention the reason why u solved it like that ? i mean for example : if i were u , i wouldn't read the Daily Mail ( we used " the" here as it's newspaper ) etc i think it will be more useful thanks alot
Personally I like watching your lessons, is so enjoyable.

Do you speak "the" like "w" or "f", not like "de" in Spanish?
Very useful ,thank you very much regard
