    Re: Does need use the article "the" ?

    For one new word, you will use A. 'I'm learning a new word.

    But if you are learning more words, then you will be using THE. 'I'm learning the new words.

    Hope it helps!

    -ps I am not a teacher

    Would you like to try to reframe the first question? It is difficult to help when we cannot understand the question.

    I think you mean:

    Do I need to use the article "the" for "I am learning a/the new word(s)"?

    The answer is that it completely depends on whether you are learning only one new word or several/many.

    I am learning a new word [every day].
    I am learning new words [every week at my English lessons].
    I am learning some new words [and I think they will be helpful].
    I am learning the new words [which I need in order to write a letter].
