Why there is an article "la" before "tutan vesperon"?

There is often a 'la' in esperanto when there does not need to be one in the english for it to make sense, comes up a lot in time and also with things like Malfermu la buŝon (open your mouth) or li parolas la anglan ( he speaks english). It is just the way the language is, you get used to it.

But isn't "li parolas anglan" the same as "li parolas la anglan"
