    Clear and concise! But this is a very basic lesson; I'm searching for an advanced lecture about this particular subject. The foreign languages I know best are English, Modern Greek and Spanish and I frequently make mistakes with the articles. It's very interesting to compare the situation in different langauges. Sometimes, when the indefinite singular is used in English they may use the definite plural in Greek, for instance. The tricky part is to know when to omit the article and when not to. For instance, I know that it should be "It's fate" and not "It's the fate.". …

    Just an example: "I don't have (a) job/work." Which of the combinations are correct?

  16. Mattos Sobrinho says:

    Hello there!
    When do I pronounce "a (ei) book" and when do I pronounce "a (aa) Book"? In your lesson you always pronounce 'a' with the sound of (ei).

    It´s confusing for me when should I use one pronunciation and when I use the other.

    If you can explain I´ll be very pleased!
