    Article usage is very complex and cannot be reduced to a few rules. Many learners find it takes years to work out all the nuances.

    I have read - and I agree - that the natural use of articles is the last thing to fall in place for your writing to be considered "native-like."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Note that "good night" is a way of saying "goodbye." Use "good evening" (or just a simple "Hello") instead.

    It's only evening in certain time zones. This is a global forum.

    We don't even need 'Hello'. Just go ahead and ask your question.
