English Grammar. Lesson 5. Possessive Pronouns (my-mine)

In previous lessons we used a personal pronoun “it” when we spoke about things and people:

It is a table. It is a boy.

We can use “it” when we speak about things and about people when we are not intend to show if they close or far from us. But if we want to show that a thing or a person is close or far from us we should use demonstrative pronouns (demonstratives): “this (these)” – when we speak about things or people that are close to us or “that (those)” – when we speak about things or people that are far from us.

this-that

In this lesson we will learn about demonstrative pronouns (demonstratives) “this” and “these” which we use to show that things or people are close to us.
