    Cool What is the rule?

    Hi,

    Could you please tell me the rule to use the word 'the'.

    Eg:

    I am going to room OR I am going to the room
    She is working in Llyods TSB Bank. OR She is working in the Llyods TSB Bank.

    I am expecting the correct rule from the experienced/teachers.
