Normally i would say a secretary because that is correct english but in Dl since there was no "mot" there now i did not use it ! I failed again! DL please be consistent ! If you are using english in a stupid way then use it consistently that way! Tha t is redicilous ! And yes "the secretary" is also can be used ;That is correct my friend WanJaFo
Both "the secretary" and "a secretary" are possible in English. It depends on the specific situation. When the Vietnamese is simply "là thư ký", it could be either answer in English. Both "a" and "the" should be accepted.
"I think they are hiring there. My elder brother is the secretary; I'll ask him." It is acceptable in English.
