    Arrow The Article

    Hi guys. This is my first post here. I started to learn English a few years ago, but I think my English is really poor... Especially grammar.
    I need your help about article (the, a/an and zero article). Can you please correct where it's needed?

    He is now a sports trainer with the English football club. He likes living in London in his spare time he goes to the cinema and plays the guitar in a band. He starts (?) work early. He gets up at six thirty in the morning, and clyes to the club. I don't like trabelling by underground, during rush hour. The crowds at that time are terrible. Apart from that (?) life in London is great.

    The articles are correct. The bits in red are wrong.

    "Plays guitar" (no article) also works.

    If we are referring to the national team', we normally refer to it as ''England' or 'the 'England (football) team. 'English club' normally means a club that plays in the English league, for example, Manchester United. If that's what you mean, then it will be an English club'.
