Understand the articles

Really understand how to use 'a', 'an' and 'the'.

Scientific techniques

Lots of practice so that you'll remember what you've learned.

Would you like to feel good about 'a', 'an' and 'the'?

'A', 'an' and 'the' (and no article) can be tricky! Maybe they don't exist in your language. Maybe your language has articles, but you use them differently.

There are so many difficult things:

  • Why is it 'the station' but NOT 'the Victoria station'?
  • Why is it 'the Univeristy of Cambridge' but NOT 'the Cambridge University'?
  • When do we say 'Italian food' or 'the Italian food'?
  • When is it 'the bus' and when 'a bus'?

What our students say:

Manuela from Germany

The structure was fantastic. Easy to follow and enough time to learn and understand. The review days were exactly to the right time. The explanations were good to follow and understand. It was such fun to do this course. Thank you very much. See you soon!!

Mikhail from Russia

The way the information was presented - the most important thing is it was presented by a native English speaker (the subject was explained from a perspective different from the one I was used to in Russia). The course was very helpful for getting to know better the most difficult (and most favourite) topic in English - English articles.

Hubavina from Bulgaria

Very well structured and useful course. I found that I have gaps in my knowledge on the topic, which I filled thanks to this course. I feel more confident in my knowledge of this course. Thanks!

This challenge will help you really understand 'a', 'an' and 'the' and feel confident about using them.

  • You'll get really clear explanations.
  • You'll learn about the difficult exceptions.
  • You'll learn rules that will really help.

What our students say:

Dina from Russia

The course was highly informative, detailed, and engaging. Special thanks for many review exercises.

Grzegorz from Poland

Clear explanations are great. Various exercises make me as good as I can be. My use of articles has become more intuitive.

Dagmar from Switzerland

You get used to working regularly. It's a doable task and you feel obliged to do it. As a result, you come into a certain fluency and enjoy that.

Here's what you get:

  • 30 video lessons

    We've really worked hard to make the videos very clear and easy.

  • Review exercises

    Practice is key! The review exercises are carefully structured and very efficient.

  • PDFs of everything

    You can download and print everything.

  • Flashcards of everything

    Flashcards really, really help you to remember the articles. They are scientifically proven to work and they're brilliant!
