Of course, there’s only one person who calls me Mum, and that’s my son, but when he’s with his friends he calls me Sue.

My mum calls me Sweetheart, and my best friend calls me Suzanne because she’s French. My Japanese sister-in-law calls me Suki – apparently, Suki means ‘loved one’ in Japanese, so that’s really nice.

My husband calls me Bunny, but that’s another story...

Grammar

1. Read the following description.

I am from Winchester, Hampshire. Winchester is a city in the United Kingdom. I live in a town called Taunton which is on the River Tone. I live in a house in a quiet street in the countryside. The street is called "Hudson Street" and the house is old - more than 100 years old! I am an English lecturer at a college near the centre of the town. I like books, music and taking photographs. I usually have lunch at college. I usually go home by car. We have all kinds of food in England. I like Polish food very much. Sometimes, I go to a Polish restaurant in Bath. The restaurant is called "Magda's". Polish food is delicious!

  • a = indefinite article (not a specific object, one of a number of the same objects) with consonants

    Donata is an English teacher.
  • the = definite article (a specific object that both the person speaking and the listener know)
    The car over there is fast.
    The teacher is very good, isn't he?
  • The first time you speak of something use "a or an", the next time you repeat that object use "the".
    I live in a house. The house is quite old and has two bedrooms.
    I ate in a Vietnamese restaurant. The restaurant was not very clean.
  • DO NOT use an article with countries, states, counties or provinces, lakes and mountains except when the country is a collection of states such as "The United States".

    They live in Bristol.

    I live on a small island in the Baltic Sea.
  • DO NOT use an article when you are speaking about things in general
