This post is for beginners to use ‘there’ to talk about things in places.
You can say “In my room I have a desk, a bed and a bookshelf.” but it isn’t always the most natural way to say it. Instead it’s more natural to say:
There is a desk, a bed and a bookshelf in my room.
Just remember ‘is’ for one thing and things you can’t count, and ‘a/an’ or ‘the’ if you can count it; ‘are’ is for more than one of the same thing.
