Translations of "Church"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? You can say I went to church yesterday. But when you say I went to mosque yesterday its all of a sudden wrong.... Although it is said that the 'the' is left out before public institions etc... like churchy hospital, prison... How's that?
A: This is because before, "mosques" were very uncommon or even unknown in English speaking countries. But now that they're noticed/known in English speaking countries too, it is changing. Nonetheless, there are many English grammarians that argue as to whether "going to mosque" is considered correct as "going to church", so I understand why there are people who might tell you it's incorrect if you drop the definite article.
In conclusion, you can drop the definite article in "going to mosque"(if the reason you're going is to pray), among friends or on the internet. But if you're writing an exam or something you'll be graded on, I'd suggest you use the "the" for mosque.

Hope it helps,

Other questions about "Church"

Q: I was at church Does this sound natural?
A: @haileyjun: it depends on the context when you use "the church" in a sentence. For instance, I would say "I was at church" as a general statement, or I would say "The church we visited today was very nice." In the first, we use the word "church" as a concept rather than needing to use "the" to denote a specific place. In the second, the word "the" indicates that the speaker needs to specify one, specific church to the listener. As in, "I went to the church you recommended to me."

I hope that's helpful!
