    What is the different between these and those?

    As a Hebrew speaker, sometimes I can't distinguish between the use of "those" and "these". Can you help me find a way to distinguish them easily?

    "These" is the plural of "this"; "those" is the plural of "that".

    When comparing the two, this/these refers to the thing or person that is closer to you; that/these refers to the thing that is more distant.

    These shoes are better than those shoes.

    Look up "this" and "that" in a good dictionary and compare the senses and examples.
