Officer : Yes, madam. May I see your passports?

Officer : Yes. Thank you. How long are you staying in England, Mr. Sallis?

Harry : I don’t know exactly. Till I finish my business.

Officer : I see. And how much money have you with you?

Harry : Money?

Officer : How much in foreign currency? Is your money in cash or traveller’s cheques?

Harry : Why all these questions? You know, I’ve travelled all over the world. Up the Rhine. Across the Pyrenees. To the United States. Over the Pacific. And everywhere you officials ask the same questions. It’s exasperating!

Officer : I don’t think you undertand, sir. We have to make sure you have enough money to last you during your stay.

Harry : But why? I though discretion was the great virtue of the English. Why can’t we come and go as we wish?

Officer : You can. But there are so many people in this country already that we must keep some control.

Harry : I’m supprised you don’t want to know how many gold teeth I have!

Barbara : He can see without asking, darling!


Perhatikan pemakaian dan dihilangkannya kata depan the berikut ini:

1. Nama-nama musim. Bila kita mengingat musim tertentu kita memakai the. I was here in the spring of 1958. Do you remember the autumn we stayed in Italy? Tapi the dihilangkan bila kita berbicara mengenai musim pada umumnya atau sebagai iklim: Summer is my favorite season. Spring is here at last!

2. Kata-kata seperti school, church, home, bed, dan sebagainya. The kita pakai dengan kata-kata tersebut bila kita lebih menitik beratkan kata-kata tersebut sebagai suatu tempat tertentu, bangunan itu. (Mementingkan gedungnya, bukan kegiatannya.) The shcool is very near the church. The bed is broken. This was the home of George Washington. Tetapi jika kita lebih tertarik kepada pemakaian secara umum atau normal, maka the kita hilangkan. I learnt history at school. We go to church every Sunday. He stays in bed till eleven o’clock every morning. That man goes home every evening.

3. Nama diri. The dihilangkan pada nama diri, nama kota, dan nama negara. Contoh: London is a large city. India is far from Italy. Tetapi untuk kali ini ada pengecualian tertentu: the biasanya dipakai pada:

  1. Nama negara. The United States. The Soviet Union. The Netherlands.
  2. Nama sungai. The Tagus runs through Spain and Portugal. The Rhine is a broad river.
  3. Nama laut, samudra, dan danau. The Atlantic. The Channel. The Mediteranean.
  4. Nama pegunungan. The Alps. The Himalaya. The Pyrenees.


To hear about someone or something.
I’m here

to understand I understand I understood I have understood
to make I make I made I have made
to keep I keep I kept I have kept
to know I know I knew I have known
