Serious about passing IELTS?

Then enrol in one of our membership plans and get access to ALL the resources on this site, no advertising, your own support tutor to answer your questions as you study and 7 downloadable eBooks. MASTER Members also get 10 writing tests assessed (with comments, corrections and estimated band score) and TWO live speaking assessments (one to one with your tutor, followed by a feedback session and estimated band score). Find out more here!

Want your IELTS writing assessed with a band score?

Did you know that you can have TEN complete writing tests (10 x Task 1 and 10 x Task 2) assessed by your own support tutor and former IELTS examiner if you enrol in the MASTER Membership? Your tutor will correct any errors, give you suggestions for improvement and give you an estimated band score. Find out more here

Want a live speaking assessment one to one with a former IELTS examiner?

Did you know that you can have TWO live speaking assessments one to one with your tutor? We run a full mock speaking test with all 3 sections, followed by a discussion session where we talk your strengths and areas for improvement and tell you your approximate band score. Remember that all of our tutors are former British Council trained IELTS examiners with over 16 years experience, so you can be confident in our feedback! Find out more here

Want to earn $50 USD per month - EVERY MONTH - just for referring us?

We offer the option for a school or institution to become a subdomain partner, where they have a copy of ALL the resources on our site but on their own domain name (e.g. 'ielts.yourschool-or-company.com'). Every month that school or institution remains a partner, you generate a $50 USD commission - and you don't need to do anything! You earn $50 USD per month for each subdomain partner that signs up with us, so you can generate passive income with very little work! Find out more here

So that means by now you should already know 18 rules about using the correct article. In this lesson, we will look at the remaining rules for using articles at Level B2. Be prepared – this is a complicated lesson!

OK, are you ready? Let’s begin with using articles in English at Level B2.
