HIS – HER – YOUR – THEIR – Possessive Adjectives

Learn how to use Possessive Adjectives!

Hey student!

In this lesson, we are going to review and learn about possessive adjectives. Many English learners struggle with the use of possessive adjectices. Learning how to use possessive adjectives correctly can be a challenge for both basic and advanced students. So let’s focus on the main explanations.

MY, YOUR, HIS, HER, ITS, OUR, THEIR are possessive adjectives.

Basically, you indicate a possession, something that you have, that is YOUR something.

Examples

MY YouTube channel has 74k subscribers.

Another example: MY subscribers watch and share

My lessons every day

What’s the problem?

Many English learners want to use the P.A. “your” with every person.

That man is a doctor. Your name is Jack. (incorrect)

You should say:

That man is a doctor. HIS name is Jack.

Talk about other people’s possessions

When you describe objects or things that OTHER PEOPLE HAVE, if you are NOT talking to the person directly, if you are talking ABOUT the person, not TO the person, you canNOT use “your”

Using HIS & HER

When we are talking about other people in the singular and their possessions, if it is man we will use HIS and if it is a woman we will use HER. Take a look at the example below:

This is my friend. HER name is Linda. HER favorite TV show is Friends. She loves Friends. In HER free time, she watches Friends. HER favorite day of the week is Saturday because she goes out with HER friends.

I have a terrible neighbor. HIS name is Jackson. I don’t like HIS attitude. He is very noisy and HIS children are very rude. He always leaves HIS TV on very loud.

How to use THEIR

“THEY” represents the plural of he, she and it.

When describing possessions, if you are talking ABOUT more than one person, you have to use THEIR.

These are my friends. THEIR favorite  band is Coldplay. They love Coldplay. On THEIR next vacation, they are traveling to London to see Coldplay and meet THEIR friends who live there.

 

Now you know a little more about possessive adjectives. If you want, I have two videos about possessive adjectives. Check them out!!
