Intermediário 9. DEMONSTRATIVES This/that, these/those


 1) Put THIS/THAT before singular nouns: this table, that house, this furniture, that information.

2) Put THESE/THOSE before plural nouns: these tables, those houses, these furniture, those information.

3) Use demonstratives to show which things you are talking about, and to say whether they are near or far from your point of view.
Examples:
This building is very old. That man over there is very rich. I'd like on kilo of these potatoes and half a kilo of those carrots.

4) Use THIS for time which is in the present and near future.
Examples: this year, this month, this week.

5) When we say THIS + TIME, we mean the current ones. For days of the week, we mean the next coming.
Example: This Friday.

6) Use THAT for time which is in the past, and for activities in the past.
