"What are demonstrative pronouns? Demonstrative pronouns – this, that, these and those– are used to replace nouns in sentences. Demonstrative pronouns are difficult to grasp for English language learners for many reasons. First, they all start with th, which is a hard sound for English learners to produce. Second, they are used in relation to the speaker, which often creates further confusion for students. However, if an English language learner wants to improve their fluency, they must learn to use them confidently and correctly.
