You can send the money over the Internet. You don't have to go to the bank.

(In the second sentence, what is the use of 'the' before bank? Is 'the' in the generic use or does 'the bank' mean a specific bank in mind?)

  • English -

    In this sentence, "the" is simply generic, not seeming to refer to any particular bank.
