Today we will learn about demonstrative determiners: This, That, These, Those, Here and There.
Generally speaking, “these” things are closer to you than “those” things.
“These” is the plural of “this.” Example: This is one thing near me over here; these are two things near me over here.
“Those” is the plural of “that.” Example: That is one thing far away over there; those are two things far away over there.
When you have two groups of things next to each other, you can refer to the first group as “these” and the second group as “those” – even though they may be the same distance away.
Example: These chocolates are mine, and those are yours.
Here’s how you can remember this: These go here, those go there.
