these are great

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English.

Use this phrase when referring to multiple things or people that are great or excellent.


  • These are great cookies.
  • These are great ideas.
  • These are great friends.

These is great

This phrase is incorrect in English.


  • this is great
  • these are great
  • this is amazing
  • these are amazing
  • this is fantastic
The correct phrase is "these are great." The word "these" is a plural pronoun, so it should be followed by the plural form of the verb "are." "These is great" is incorrect because it uses the singular form of the verb with a plural subject.
