usage of articles : LUSENET : English : One Thread

My native language does not have articles. Although I do generally well in my report writing, I struggle with articles. The definitions or general rules do not help me, because it looks like there are more exceptions to the rules than rules themselves. I don't struggle as much with when to write an "a" or "the", but I struggle with knowing whether or not I need to use any of the articles. Once I know that then I generally use correct articles. I cannot find a good enough book, workbook etc., which explains the above problem and provides many examples with answers and with explanations. Can anyone refer me to a good source/rules/books/workbooks? Thanks very much, Monique
