Articles - FREE

Next Video: Reason, Result & Contrast

Yeah, I know, it's a bit early in the course to throw articles at you but, for most students, they are an unexplained mystery of the English universe. And, because we need the majority of our sentences to be error free to achieve a 7 or higher in the exam, it's important that we focus on articles early in our course.

I don't expect my students to NEVER make mistakes with articles, but I do expect them to learn the 6 general article rules and use them. So, these are what we will focus on in this video.

At the end of the video, there is also a 3 minute slideshow to check your knowledge of individual article rules (the ones for mountains and rivers and towns, etc). I suggest you come back to this part of the video again and again to check your knowledge.

Oh, and don't forget to do the practice activities!
