While learning English, I often found myself embarrassed in the erratic usage of English articles. Would you mind if I ask a question about it?
When we're introducing a person in an article, which one should I use between:
"Tom Cruise, an American actor well known for ..."
"Tom Cruise, American actor well ..."?
Also, I would like to know should I always put "the" in the following sentence:
"Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States"
or can I just leave the sentence without it.
If there was a point I used incorrect English, feel free to fix it. I would really appreciate your answer.
