The difference between THIS, THAT, THESE and THOSE in English.
Includes an activity for students to practice these demonstratives.
In the first section, you will see Rob Woodward pointing to different things.
Sometimes he points to one thing that is close (THIS)
Sometimes he points to one thing that is far/at a distance (THAT)
Sometimes he points to two or more things that are close (THESE)
Sometimes he points to two or more things that are far/at a distance (THOSE)
The correct demonstrative will appear written on the screen and you will hear its pronunciation.
Make sure you listen to the difference in pronunciation of THIS and THESE.
In the second section, a summary chart appears then an exercise where the viewer needs to decide which demonstrative (this, that, these, those) needs to be used in each situation. A finger points to a thing or things that are close or far from it.
Finally a second summary chart appears where this/that/these/those are used as demonstrative adjectives before the word book or books.
This book – These books – That book – Those books.
This video is appropriate to use in ESOL classrooms of all ages and English teachers are welcome to use it.
