The this, the that

‘The’ is a word largely missing from some languages. Listen to the song and sing along (lyrics below..)!

Indonesian flag Especially important for Indonesian students of English!

Another song performed by AAS scholarship awardees: Andi, Velo, Rapta, Roy, Ade, Novi, Septia, Susan, Vita!


 

The… the… the… the…

The definite article – ‘the’
is a common cause of error
The media the Internet Learners tend to forget
Some words always have ‘the’

The front, the back, the left, the right
why no ‘the’ when they write?
The first the second the third
all require, this important word

The definite article – ‘the’
is a common cause of error
The media the Internet Learners tend to forget
Some words always have ‘the’

The planet and the environment
both require this element
The US and the UK are
US and UK, in a student essay

The definite article – ‘the’
is a common cause of error
The media the Internet Learners tend to forget
Some words always have ‘the’

At the bottom of the sea and the top of the hill
‘the’ is often missing still
The best, the worst this article is cursed
in the finish and the start, ‘the’ comes first

The definite article – ‘the’
is a common cause of error
The media the Internet Learners tend to forget
Some words always have ‘the’

The same, the only, without ‘the’ are lonely
if you don’t use ‘the’ you can sound like a phony
The poor, the rich, the beginning and the end
the sun and the moon.. ‘the’ is their friend!

The definite article – ‘the’
is a common cause of error
The media the Internet Learners tend to forget
Some words always have ‘the’

The… the… the… the…
The definite article – – – THE!

  • Hi Pak Guru.. I found all these songs in the website are educative and enjoyable as well.. I am actually a student of EAP 6M class. If you don’t mind, I would be really interested to join you in your next song project just in case you’ll have any,
    Cheers 😀
