Lucy UK, MUCH or MANY or A LOT OF??? Countable and Uncountable Nouns!

MUCH or MANY or A LOT OF??? Countable and Uncountable Nouns!

So guys!

Today I wanted to talk to you about

'much'

and 'many'

Let's go!

Hi guys, today we're going to talk about something that

'many' of my students get wrong 'a lot' of the time

This is the difference between 'much', 'many', 'a lot of' and 'lots of'

Well firstly these two mean the same thing

you can use them interchangeably

These ones, however, can not be used for the same nouns

and I'm going to explain how you use them right now!

So with uncountable nouns

Well these refer to something that can't be counted

and they don't normally have a plural form

Some exceptions though are drinks

If I'm in a restaurant and I ask for two coffees

Well I'm really asking for two cups of coffee

That's why I can say two coffEES, with the plural

If I ask for two sugars in my tea

Well we really know that I'm asking for two sachets

or two cubes of sugar in my tea

So, on their own we can't use them as plurals.

So, the uncountable nouns go with 'much'

And 'much' is something we tend to use in the

interrogative or the negative form

I don't have much water

Do you have much homework?

And, the countables go with 'many'

We can use this affirmative, negative and interrogative

I have many apples

I don't have many windows

There aren't many girls

Which is never normally a problem

So for the affirmative

much, especially, can sound incredibly formal

I have much water

Ooof!

It sounds a bit..

It sounds a it too much!

So instead of saying 'much' in the affirmative, I would use

a lot of water

I have a lot of water, I have lots of water

Many, on the other hand, is more widely used with the affirmative

So, I have many apples

I have a lot of apples

They're more or less the same in this case

How quick was that?

Well, I hope you guys liked it.

And as always, complete the quiz

that I'm going to be showing next

put your answers in the comments

Bye bye!!!

oops!
