I can see clearly now rain has gone

I can see all obstacles in way

Gone are dark clouds that had me blind

It’s gonna be bright sunshiny day

All of bad feelings have disappeared

Here is rainbow I’ve been praying

It’s gonna be bright sunshiny day

Look around there’s nothing but blue skies

Look straight ahead there’s nothing but blue skies

    You are of course right, but I find students and even teachers are generally scared off by the word “determiner”, so I tend to say “articles or things like articles” in class. I have a similar policy on misuse of the word “tense”. You can of course change the worksheet before using it if you don’t agree.
