Okay, let's practice with this. So let's say: This is a flower. Kore wa hana desu. Flower is hana, okay? And I want to say: That is a house. Is the word "are"? Yes. "Are wa ye desu." So when you want to point out something you have talked already, you can use the word "sore" or if it's plural you can use "sorera." Let's practice.
