Today I challenge you to make some predictions based on a text and at the same time supply suitable articles! (Rules for selcting articles or ‘s’ here)

I’ll post the answers to the following questions tomorrow. Meanwhile, if you think you already know the answers, write them in a comment below this post!

  1. When (approximately) did these events take place?
  2. Where (in the world) is the place referred to in the text?
  3. What kind of music, specifically, is referred to?

Even before they enter the bar of the nightclub in the centre of the city, no article patrons can hear the music. A regular beat, only slightly muffled, spills out onto the street. Inside the smoky, dimly lit space, no article women in no article tight mini-dresses and and teetering heels stand by a stage where nine men play various instruments. Occasionally one woman, known as a ‘waitress’ although she appears to do little waitressing, breaks into song, usually accompanied by one of the male visitors to the bar. At other points the women sway to the music as no article customers slip them no article wads of cash, no article flashing disco lights illuminating them momentarily in the darkness.
