This, that, these, those

We can use this and these to talk about things near us. We can use that and those to talk about things far away.

This book is my favourite.
That is my sister in the garden.
These are my two best friends.
Those pens don't work.

How to use them

Use this and these to talk about things near us. Use this for one thing and these for more than one.

This is my brother here.
These games here are not mine.

Use that and those to talk about things far away. Use that for one thing and those for more than one.

That teacher over there teaches English.
Are those your toys over there?

Those are my teacher's pencils.
These are my pencil cases. That is her note book.
This is my homework.
