Suburbs

Hi,

“He lives in the suburbs”. Can I also say “He lives in suburbs”?

Thanks a lot in advance. Ciao!

The article is needed there.

Why “the suburbs” and not “the suburb”?
Thanks

The two words have different meaning. SuburbS is synonymous with outskirts.

Bye

More than one suburb.

Cities have many suburbs, not just one. When grouped together they are known collectively as ‘the suburbs’.
