    They're, Their, There

    The words "they're", "their", and "there" are homonyms in English  (meaning that they are different words but sound the same). 


    They're is a contraction of "they are". It can be used to talk about people, places, or things (nouns). Most of the time, verbs or adjectives follow.

    EX. Wow! They are very pretty flowers. -> Wow! They're very pretty flowers. 

    Are Marc and Julie going to the library? Yes, they're going to the library.

    Their is a possessive pronoun. It is used to describe who something belongs to (Whose?)

    EX. Does this pencil belong to Sam and Sophie? Yes, this is their pencil.

    There has the word "here" in it, and is used to describe a location. 

    EX. There are goldfishes in this bowl. (Where? There!)
