Hi there!

 

During this lesson, we're going to learn how to use the 4 demonstrative adjectives:

This, That, These, and Those.

 

All of these words are used to indicate objects or people which you can see, in the moment in which you're speaking.

 

The word: This, is used when you talk about a singuar object or person, which is near to you in the moment in which you're speaking.

For example: This coffee tastes really good.

 

The word: That, is used when you talk about a singuar object or person, which is far from you in the moment in which you're speaking.

For example: That car is very fast.

 

The word: These, is used when you talk about a plural objects or people, which are near to you in the moment in which you're speaking.

For example: These socks are really smelly.

 

The word: Those, is used when you talk about a plural objects or people, which are far from you in the moment in which you're speaking.

For example: Those people are really happy.

 

You can also use the word: one, or ones, as pronouns to replace the name of the object or objects that you're talking about whenever the person you are talking with already knows what you're talking about.

 

Do you want this one, or these ones? (holding 1 pen in one hand, and 3 pens in the other)

But if the pens were on a shelf in a shop you would say: Would you like that one, or those ones?

 

You can also use demonstrative adjectives to compare objects or people.

 

Here are some examples:

 

This table is bigger than that one.

 

That car is more expensive than this one.

 

This landscape is less impressive than this one.

 

The wine is better than the other ones.

 

This guy is funnier than the other ones.

 

Those lights are brighter than this one.

 

This bag is heavier than those ones.

 

I prefer this mug to those ones.

 

So now you can see if this lesson is easier than the other ones!
