Articles Exercise (a, an, the, no article) B1

Basic Grammar Rules: Articles (A / AN / THE / NO ARTICLE)

Use A / AN for: things / objects / places / people etc.  that are new to the listener or reader.

Example sentences:  1. There is book on a table. 2. I met a friend yesterday.

Use THE for: specific things / objects / places / people which are already known to the listener or reader.

Example sentences: 1. There is a book on a table.  The book is big.  2.  I met a friend at the party last night (In this sentence, the listener / reader already knows about the party).   3. I went to the cinema last night.  (Although there can be more than one cinema or hospital in a town or city, we generally use the before these words.)

Use NO ARTICLE (Zero Article)for generalisations and time phrases.  Generalising: When we are generalising in English, we use the plural form to talk about a group of things and no article is needed.  Example sentences: 1. Dogs are my favourite animal.  2. Cigarettes are bad for your health.  Time Phrases: We do not use a / an or the with time phrases such as next, last, etc.  Example sentences: 1. I went to a party last night. 2. Next month, I’m going on holiday.

The following exercise is a multiple-choice exercise.  Choose the article (a / an / the / no article) to complete the gaps in the sentences.
