Names without 'The' (definite article) - English Grammar lesson

Names without 'The' (definite article) - English Grammar lesson Blog : Website : Facebook : youtube : The word "the" is one of the most common words in English. Using the article 'The" can be quite tricky at times especially for names. When to use it or when not to use it is a common question asked by the English learners. In this lesson we will look at the names without the article 'The' 1. We do not use 'the' with names of people Example - Niharika , Helen 2. When we use Mr/Mrs/Captain/doctor etc followed by a name,we do not use 'the'. Example - Mr Johnson , Doctor Smith 3. We do not use 'the' with names of places. Some of the examples are given below: Continents - Africa (not The Africa), Europe, South America Countries - Japan , India , Australia States - Texas , Delhi Islands - Sicily , Bermuda Cities - New York , Mumbai, Bangkok Mountains - We use Mount (Mt) for mountains and lake (lake) without using 'the' Mt Etna , Mt Everest , lake Superior , Lake Constance

Hello from KZ. =)
Good english
Hello. I'm not native speaker actually. And I love almost every lesson of teacher Niharika. But in this lesson, I'm not sure but does anyone notice the way she pronunciates the word "island". it seems that she doesn't pronunciate it right way. She pronunciates it like "iland" not "island". It's just my opinion. Thanks for reading.
Dear Niharika You are doing a good job. I love way you teach cant you teach us how to construct simple to complex sentences with the grammar rules thanks
Hello i am from algeria and my name salim i need a teacher to learn english if there send to me at my accont [email protected] and my skyp is salim90251 thanks to you NIHARIKA and all woh help you to doing all this my god help you
Hi Niharika, so, If I say "I'm going to visit the state of California" that would be correct? Or the right way would be "I'm going to visit state of California. Is so confusing to me, because of the "political names". I hope your answer. Ps. You are so beautiful. Best wishes.
Thanks a lot!
I love your enthusiasm! You must be really passionate about teaching. Thank you for the lesson :)
Thanks for this lesson i have been waiting for it but i am still confused with one thing, if we know the doctor we are taking about or it is specific one we say "' i am going to meet the doctor'' but if it was any doctor not  (specific one) do we still say the same or we say i am going to meet a doctor. thanks in advance
