    Re: esl teacher

    Welcome, rwaldron.

    Use "these" when the objects you're talking about are close to you

    EX: How much are these books in my hand?


    Use "those" when the objects you're talking about are not close to you.

    EX: How much are those books on the table over there?


    Hope that helps.
