Demonstrative pronouns

Scrambled Eggs Scuola di Inglese welcomes you to our blog! We have been teaching English in a beautiful location next to the Navigli for many years now, and we know that if a student would really like to progress with their language it is essential that they do regular study at home as well as in the classroom. We hope you like the blog below about demonstrative pronouns and you can make a habit of practicing a little at home every day!

Would you look at that, we are going to talk about demonstrative pronouns today!

What exactly are demonstrative pronouns? Let’s find out!

A demonstrative pronoun (this, that, these and those) are used instead of a noun to point out people or things.

If something is near in distance or time, we use this (singular) or these (plural)

If something is far in distance or time, we use that (singular) or those (plural)

 

 

 

Let’s look at some examples:

  • That is my brother (he is far away).
  • These are some crazy times (talking about the present [now])
  • Look at this cool new phone (something that is close)
  • Those were the days! (talking about the past).

 

Let’s try a quiz and see how well you know it!
