Their or their. Many learners of English confuse “there” with “their” and do not know which is which especially when they are doing writing tasks or exams.
There (adverb): (to, at, in) that place

- I hope we can get there on time.
There (adverb): used to show that something exists or happens

Their (the possessive form of they)= of or belonging to them.
- Amal and Sarah are international students. Their home country is Qatar.

“Their” is used to refer to one person to avoid saying “his or her”

I hope the examples above will help you use “there” or “their” accurately.
