Question: I know that French employs definite articles in many cases where English would use no article at all, but is it also more common in French to use the definite article where English might be more likely to employ demonstrative adjectives 'this' or 'that' or possessive adjectives 'my', 'your', 'her', etc.?
I ask, because, having introduced demonstrative and possessive adjectives, Duolingo rarely employs them in sentences, such as we have here, where they would make sense and be very commonly used in English. I've noticed that, outside of the specific units that introduced both demonstrative, and to a lesser degree, possessive adjectives, these are rarely given in example sentences where they might be. This leaves me wondering if they are just not as common in French as they are in English.
