    using articles

    Hello! I'm learning English and now I'm writing to you for the first time to ask about using articles. I'm working on my essay and there are two sentences where I use indefinite articles but I'm not sure if it is right. Here they are:
    1. A true friend is a person who loves you despite the fact that you are not ideal, and you have some shortcomings or sometimes make mistakes.
    2. Christian Nestell Bovee, a French writer, said: “Kindness is a language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand.”
    I hope you'll help me. Thank you

    Re: using articles

    Hi Masha, your use of articles looks good to me. I would modify your first sentence slightly...
    1. A true friend is a person who loves you despite the fact that you are not perfect. You may have some shortcomings or sometimes make mistakes.
    Hope that helps
