'This city is old' is not accepted? Also, what would be 'This old city'?

After studying the threads in this lesson I finally get it now! "This city is old would" need "ال" in front of medina. But since it isn't there, you must mentally put "to be" verb right after "هذا".

This is a happy student. هذا طالب سعيد This student is happy. هذا الطالب سعيد

YAYY!!!!!!ياي
