I wrote "these", it says "those"; what's the difference? I'm not a native speaker

Generally, "these" are closer than "those". It's somewhat similar to the difference between "here" and "there", though the distance between "these" and "those" doesn't need to be spatial; it can also be temporal or mental.

Thanks, some words are so similar in English and can get confusing... ^^
