    Hello! How is it going?. I´ve got one question to ask. Thanks in advance!

    1.- "Full". If I use Full in the following sentence, does it mean

    "there are lots of people on the street"?

    The sentence is: "The streets are FULL of people"
    I was thinking that there´s maybe another way to mean
    that in English. Is there any other way?

    By the way, can I omit the definite article THE?

    "Streets are full of people"

    Re: Full

    It means the streets are crowded. "full of" works there. It's good.

    Yes, you need the definite article. "streets" is a count noun.

    All the best.
