    James, looks like you made a mistake. Talking about "the", you wrote on the whiteboard "everyone know what you YOUR instead YOU`RE talking about".

    Hi James, I am an native English speaker- but I love the lessons, because I realize how little I know of explaining English grammar. This topic is still challenging. We could say use an article when you can count something like: a dog (one dog, two dogs etc ) How about the word "weather" "The weather is nice today" That sounds right. but "one weather, two weathers " doesn't sound right. Or should we say "Weather is nice today" maybe, but never "A weather is nice today."

    At 8:27 when he says, "I knew it was a good lesson," but why isn't it, "I knew it was the good lesson?"

    If "a" is general and "the" is specific, logically, this specific lesson that we just shared together is definite: "the lesson." So why isn't it, "I knew it was the good lesson?"

    My question is…, the "THE" can be used to plural objects, am I wrong about this?
