So many of YOUR English mistakes are related to the way that you use nouns! In this free video lesson, we are going to improve your use of English nouns!
There are two types of nouns – countable and uncountable. Knowing the difference between them and how you can use these types of nouns is really important. It affects how you use:
– articles (a/an/the)
– a little/a few
Learning and understanding how countable and uncountable nouns are used differently in English will DRAMATICALLY improve your grammar!
I’ve made a worksheet that you can download so you can practice what you learn in this lesson.
This video, we’ll focus on countable nouns. You can check out my lesson on uncountable nouns right here: https://youtu.be/tjPoypKI11g
What you need to know about countable nouns:
Some nouns are ‘countable’ – very simply, you can count them!
We can say there are three, five or ten of these nouns.
Countable nouns have singular and plural forms.
For example: one lemon (singular), three lemons (plural)
You can use the articles ‘a’ and ‘an’, with the singular form of the noun: a glass, an apple, a banana…
What about plural countable nouns?
When you have a plural countable noun, you can use the number to say how many. Or you can use ‘some’ (when you don’t want to be specific about how many)
You can say: some red chillies, some potatoes, two forks and three zucchinis!
Most English nouns are countable nouns. Other examples include: day, week, hour, minute, dollar, task, story, job, coin, accident and appointment.
– can be singular or plural.
– use a/an when using the singular form
– Use some when plural, but you don’t want to be specific
– Use the number to be specific!
