    你好!

    Answer:

    1) Which school are you talking about?

    We need the definite article "the" in the sentence. THE SCHOOL ( to show which school....)

    2) go to university go to school <---------They are phrases.( All fixed)

    In this sentence, we do not need "the".

    By the way, CANNOT<----------- is one word.

    Some people cannot( one word) go to universi

    .............

    We walked past THE school( that specific school) on our way home.

    2. 某些人不能上大學

    這兒所指的大家沒有指定那一間,所以不用 THE<-----WRONG

    go to work go to school go to university go to hospital ( all phrases)

    no articles needed!

    go to jail

    go to work go to school go to university go to hospital go to jail ( all phrases)

    no articles needed!

    少少中文補充,因為如果人地知道你那間學校讀,咁用THE,話明,那間。

    如果冇指定,要用, university

    所有school, college, university, market, jail, hospital等字,是與番學、買餸、坐監、入院有關,都不用加 the。

    因此,

    第1條你只係路經間學校,不是番學,所以要用the。

    第2條表示入大學,當然與番學有關,咁就不用the。

    1.We walked "the school" on our way home .

    2.Some people cannot go to university .

    The 是用在一些我們知道的東西,獨有似的。所以the school就是這間學校,是我們知道的。

    而University大學,我們都不知道是什麼大學,所以就不用the。

    "Go to University" is a phrase.

    1. 我們走過了學校

    隱含了大家都知道所指的學校是那一所,因此用 THE

    2. 某些人不能上大學

    這兒所指的大家沒有指定那一間,所以不用 THE

    THE 既使用好簡單,當你想想你說話時要用 "這、那、這些、那些" 或隱含大家都明白的事或物件時就會用到。

    隱含: John, please close the door.

    當你叫 John 關門,你指的門應該 John 是了解或當時你有指示給 John 那一個門。
