Hello legioner,

'all', which is a quantifier, can be used before a plural noun (e.g. 'all bells'), before 'the' and a plural noun (e.g. 'all the bells') and before a more specific quantifier and plural noun (e.g. 'all four bells'), but does not come after 'the' (e.g. it is incorrect to say 'the all bells'). As you can see, it can take a little practice to learn to use 'all' correctly!

Sorry team, would you like to correct my english writing above?
Which one of them i've to chose in order to be good sentence?

Hello Nizam Balinese,

That sounds fantastic and I'd love to visit these places - maybe one day! Your text definitely makes me want to visit, but I'm afraid we don't provide the service of correcting users' texts. We are simply too small a team with too much other work to be able to do that.

Please do continue contributing your texts, however, as other users may give you feedback. If there's a specific part of a sentence you want to ask us about, that also is fine.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Nizam,

That was a mistake! I've now fixed the sentence so that it has 'to visit' instead of just 'visit'. Thanks for pointing this out. I'm sorry for any confusion it may have caused you.
