GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Definite Article?
The word 'the' functions primarily as a definite article in the grammar of the English language. "The" is the most common word in the English language. 'The' is a word in english grammar to express a noun. 'The' always begins the expression of a noun. eg. It's 'the' end of 'the' world 'The' is very commonly used and is used when talking about something which exists either as a human concept or a actual thing. eg. The time is 9:40 am. eg. The earth is the most exciting thing ever. "The" has variable pronunciation. It is generally pronounced with a long e (IPA /i:/) before a word starting with a vowel sound, and with a schwa before a word beginning with a consonant sound, i.e., as or respectively.

This portion of the site is dedicated to definite articles. The worksheet found here would be great for classes of intermediate students. The entire lesson plan along with all the necessary handouts is included in one download for your convenience. The worksheet is great because it encourages students to work individually, in groups, and as a class; it also has a variety of practice activities. If this is the first time students have been exposed to letter writing in English class, it could be used to transition into a letter writing activity. Most of these worksheets are pretty basic but there are some very creative ones as well; this which draws its inspiration from the game Who Wants to be a Millionaire is a good example. Students will love playing it! There are now 60 definite article worksheets available with more being added regularly by teachers just like you. If you have any worksheets on this topic, please feel free to upload them to the site. Others would certainly benefit from your contribution. There are even more free worksheets available that deal with indefinite, mixed, and zero articles so whenever you decide to talk about those subjects with your students, make Busy Teacher your first stop for lesson ideas.
