文法跟讀 In-Tense Ep.035: 英文定冠詞語言篇"the English" ?
Welcome to 15mins.today the home of English Shadowing. I'm your host Gavin and this is In-Tense Episode 35.
Well guys, in this episode we are carrying on with our use of the definite article “the,” actually the non use, where we do not use “the.” So today's one we will be looking at is, languages. So when you talk about a language, we do not use “the” in front of a language as in, “I speak English.” or “You speak Chinese.” So, it's very simple, I don't think there's any exception that I can honestly think of. So, let's get started with our questions!
