Please add a "tip" before intruducing family members

There are a lot of similar questions like: "why is there no "il" before mio padre" or "la" before sua figlia.

So if you can, please put that rule regarding singular family members in a tip.

The rule: There is no definite article with possessive that refers to a family member or relative, while in plural form there is.

  • Mio fratello / I miei fratelli
  • Tuo zio / I tuoi zii
