· 文法跟讀單元 In-Tense

Welcome to 15mins.today the home of English Shadowing. I'm your host Gavin and this is InTense Episode 32.

Well guys, in this episode we will be looking at something which is very important, and that is the word “the” which is an article. We call it an article, there are 2 articles “the” which is a specific article and “a or an” which is a non-specific article. And the key here is, when do we not use “the,” and that is what we will be looking at over the next few episodes. So, for this one I'm going to be looking at Holidays, because it is the holiday season. So, in front of the name of Holidays, we do not use the word “the” and as we just passed Christmas and New Year's and New Year's Eve ,if we talk about it like that, we do not put it there in front of those. So, let's look at our examples. Are you ready? Let's go.
