De la

How do you say "from the ..."?  My guess would be "DE LA ...".  However, this can only mean some.  What do I do?

Hi Sandra, 

Du, de l', de la, des can also mean from the,  it all depends on context -

e.g.

Je vous appelle de la cantine = I am calling you from the canteen

Je vous appelle du bureau I am calling you from the office

Je vous appelle des Etats-Unis = I am calling you from the States

Je vous appelle de l'hôtel = I am calling you from the hotel 

Hope this helps!
