    Post The Article

    Good day, Teacher!
    I'm Perseus, from Kazakhstan. I love learning English language, and reading English books. I notice that in English books and magazines there are a lot of articles, "a,an and the". Unfortunately, my attempt to learn the article appeared failure. Could you help me ?
    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Articles can be very challenging for people whose native language does not use them. Is that the case with your native language?

    Do you have a good grammar book to study from? Do you have an English teacher? The use of articles is far too large a subject for us to explain here. Why don't you post some sentences which confuse you and we can try to explain why the use (or don't use) articles?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
