Student or Learner
She claims a half of the earned money.
Does it sound good or shall I rather use "one" half?
To be honest, I don't understand why... Anyway, this is one of the things in language that can't be well explained, isn't it? One has to learn it and recognise it with hir or her "language flair" (how do you call it? I can't find the right words to express what I mean, actually.)
I hope there is no similar "rule" with articles! It would mean I have already lost my chance.
Anyway, do you think that people really can't learn English (I mean the pronunciation) so well, that the others couldn't recognise it is a "foreign" language for them (I mean for the "people")? I still do believe it is possible... Maybe not in English, but I have heard so many people who could speak Czech perfectly (and they weren't Czechs)!
Could you try to correct my English, please? I'm sure I've made too many mistakes...
