  • Hello, guys.

  • My name is Fanny.

  • And in this video, we're going to focus on 'there'.

  • The word, 'there'.

  • it has three different forms, and they're quite confusing for students.

  • Now, we're going to talk about spelling mistakes and pronunciation mistakes.

  • Ok, just so you know.

  • Now the first sentence, There is a house.

  • It is the very basic for 'there is' in English to show something.

  • If we take the second sentence, It's their house.

  • It's a different form of 'their'.

  • In this case, as you probably know, it's the possessive.

  • Ok?

  • The house belongs to them.

  • It's their house.

  • And in the third sentence, They're in the house.

  • It's obviously the contraction of the verb, 'to be', so

  • They are in the house.

  • Ok, so three different forms.

  • Now, listen very carefully.

  • I'm going to pronounce the three forms.

  • There Their They're

  • Now, can you hear a difference?

  • I can't.

  • There is no difference, guys.

  • The pronunciation is exactly the same.

  • And because the pronunciation is the same, many students gets confused when they write.

  • And they make spelling mistakes.

  • Ok?

  • So be really careful when you write.

  • You have to know whether it's the basic form 'there is',

  • The possessive adjective, 'there', or the contraction of 'they are'.

  • This is very important not to make spelling mistakes.

  • And when you pronounce them, don't make it more complicated than it is.

  • The sound is exactly the same.

  • Ok, guys.

  • Back to our listening test now.

  • Am I saying number one, number two, or number three?

  • Listen very carefully.

  • There / Their / They're.

  • What do you think?

  • Well I hope after watching my video, you now know

  • that is can be number one, number two, or number three.

  • Because the pronunciation is always the same.

  • Ok?

  • I hope you really understand.

  • And I hope this helps you.
